Collage ATC


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.
