Finally ... I've decided to take the plunge and create my own blog about my passion for stamping and papercraft. I love to create Artist Trading Cards, Inchies, Mini Books, Greeting Cards and other odds and ends! The styles I mostly stick to are Vintage, Arty and Collage but I often step outside my comfort zone! I'll be sharing bits and pieces of what I create as a Creative Team Member for Darkroom Door aswell as other products I use, resources and techniques I find, favourite links and more! Anything really that relates to papercraft!
I'll start with an oldie but one of my favourites. I love to recycle things for craft and so for this set of 9 ATC's I used only a magazine (Aussie Shop til you Drop is great for ATCs), white card, scissors, paper trimmer and glue.
Advertisements are full of colour which make great backgrounds for the ATCs as do wads of text. Here I positioned backgrounds sideways or upside down to creative visual interest and created layers by using multiple feature images. I love making Magazine ATCs because you can create while watching TV, need minimal supplies or brain power! It's also great if you've lost your mojo or just want to dabble in collage without getting bogged down with techniques and supplies!
