Two Asian Inspired ATCs

Here are two Asian inspired ATCs which I completed in April 2006.

ATC Title: What a nice day!

This collaged ATC was created using papers from a collage pack from the craft store. I used text from a book that teaches Chinese language which I purchased at a library fundraiser--used book sale. I used oil pastel crayon for further decoration. It is sealed with Golden Acrylic Soft Gel Medium in Gloss. Then I added a coin/token from a package of embelishments from the craft shop, which I adhered with Golden Acrylic Gel Medium in Matte.

This ATC has been traded out into an ATC Art Box.

ATC Title: Asian Flower

To make this collaged ATC, first I used watercolor paper and watercolor paint to make the background. The flower image and the Chinese text are from papers in a collage pack of papers from a craft shop. I added the border coloring and other decoration with oil pastel crayon. I sealed the card on the front and back with Golden Acrylic Soft Gel Medium in Gloss. I then added the Chines token or coin reproduction which is from a pack of embellishments from the craft shop.

I have traded out this ATC into an ATC art box.
