Rose/Cream ATCs


Above is a super close-up of the rose/cream ATC I made for Frieda Oxenham, one of my fellow "colour groupies" ; ^ ). Each month, 4 of us exchange ATCs on a color combination. For September our combo was Rose and Cream. I find myself using these monthly color combo challenges to stretch my creativity. I have been working with all of the participants for quite some time now and feel very comfortable. I think some of my ATCs are actually quite odd (see for yourself!) but I like that I can really stretch myself to do whatever my brain comes up with and my fellow CG always appreciate it. Thank you!!!
made for Frieda
These ATCs are a bit different being a marriage of fabric and a photo printed out on a transparency, with paint layered on top of the transparency. But I especially like them because the photos I printed out onto a clear transparency are photos Frieda took of the roses in her garden, in Scotland. This made the making of them extra special for me.

- and one for me!
I keep a large binder with each month's colors on a separate page.
This is my 3rd year participating and 3rd very fat binder!

This is just to show how I made them, click for more detail. You may be able to see the netting I added. I sewed the transparency to a piece of fabric, then cut the ATCs out.


Thanks for looking and commenting!

  5. You are all so sweet to comment. My personal take on these is that they are a bit pretty yes, mostly because of Frieda's lovely roses! Mostly I think they are a little odd and different, so it is lovely to read your generous comments! xo lenna
