The Dusty Attic ATC theme for June was "Collage."
I used the gorgeous ATC Frame #1 (DA0673) to frame my vintage collage. I created the collage by applying matte medium gel to my paper. I then layered bits of ephemera and applied a top layer of the matte medium gel to hold everything in place and to give it a beautiful matte finish.
I cut the collage into an oval shape and adhered my frame to the outside of the collage. I inked the frame using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Smooch Pearlized Accent ink (Snickerdoodle.) I added two miniature butterflies (DA0893) which were also painted using the Smooch ink.
I hope you give this theme a try. The collage technique allows you to experiment with different patterns and textures to create gorgeous one of a kind projects.
Thanks for visiting with us today.
