Chunky ATC using Graphic 45 Paper




Paula here again.....can you believe it's the last day of March, where has this month gone too?
Anyhow, the little project I'm showing today is a chunky ATC - if you haven't heard of an ATC before, then they are pieces of art which are created on a base measuring 3.5"x2.5", they are then swapped with other crafters/artists - so, a chunky ATC is a 3d base to work on (my base is a piece of wood) measuring the usual 3.5"x2.5" but is 1.5" in depth.
For this Chunky ATC, I've cut the images and papers from a Graphic 45 "Olde Curiosity Shoppe" 8x8 paper pad - and apart from the feet, red handle and some word strips that's it.

As always you are the Queen of chinky ATCs, a great one this time round too. Love Graphic 45 papers, love the little flying pig, I am always saying "pigs might fly"! Hope you have had a restful Easter Day apart from your feline wake up call! Elaine x

I love chunky ATCs and this one is a stunner! The back is as gorgeous as the front (and the sides...). Great use of those papers!

Well I would say that this takes more than a sprinkle of imagination.
I love the whole design of this - everything is a smooth dance of wonderful ideas. Crazy in its own way yet so well done your piece is quite beautiful!!
