ATC for G's Swap

This is my first ATC swap, I made 13 all similar to each other. The background was painted with acrylic paint and layered with stamped tissue paper, then dry brushed with gesso. I edged each one with bronze UTEE and sewed a fabric strip, punched leaf, flower, sheer fabric and stamped art tag. Then sprinkled with just a little more UTEE to blend it together.

There is an open area left for each person to put a tiny photo. The idea was an ATC LO. It was a fun project and different for me to work in a small format. Now I need to go address some envelopes and get them in the mail!

Hope you are all having a great week!


  1. I left you some love in the SM gallery but I'm going to say again. This is gorgeous!

    Is the ribbon machine sewed? Do you use one of those craft sewing machines? I've always wanted to try sewing on my layouts but I don't have enough time to handsew and we don't have a sewing machine!

  2. Hey Lucy,
