When I created the layered Marie Antoinette ATC

for the One World One Heart event

I knew that the secondary backing

to create an easel-like ability
would need to be tweaked.

That brings us to ATC #2

The layers give the intended dimensional effect

and the new easel back allows for it to be free standing

and, therefore, able to be displayed which is my mission

having grown weary of ATC stored away in plastic sleeves

or boxes

Once I have the process totally to my liking

I will prepare a little 'class' complete with

templates and necessary supplies.

That will be after my little bird departs from her next

visit which begins this week.

Some time mid March.

So gather your images, bits and bobs that you want to use for

YOUR ATC, and I will get back with the upcoming

date for our

New & Improved ATC Mini Class

If you are absolutely interested, or even somewhat interested,

drop me a note

In the meantime, this little morsel will fly off to a dear friend.

Very cool! I need to get back into ATC's. Just put some blanks on the art table and randomly crank out a few. Thanks for reminding me.

I just wanted to stop by and say THANK YOU for for entering my OWOH giveaway! Sorry it took me so long to get back with you -- it's been a crazy few weeks. I'm following your blog now, and if you'd like to stop by mine and see if you like it, I'd love for you to follow me as well! :) Thanks,

Just loving your ATCs and I agree, why hide them away, they need displaying, appreciating and to beautify any room

Jenny said...

I love the layering. I can't believe what dimension you achieved with that technique. I will definitely attempt this on some cards I need to make.

And the easel is neat, too Rella!

Terri said...
