Autumn ATC and Card

Ok, so I've really got the ATC bug now.

Here is the next one I made for Byhand Artists exchange.
I started by photocopying some marbled paper, that I had made previously, in lovely peachy, orangey colours with a touch of yellow and sky blue. I wrote out the quotation in black ink and reduced and phoptocopied it on to peachy-orange paper.
[The hand is the one that I am currently learning, called "Ondine". I like it for its hint of Uncial and find it is a good readable hand for the modern eye.] Then I cut the quotations in to squares and folded them in a lotus fold, added leaf and squiggle with a gold Zig marker and trimmed the closed fold with a scrap of skeleton leaf and a brass leaf charm.

I also have a few of these left if anyone would like to swap.

I had some bits and pieces left over, so I made a card along the same lines, with the addition of some pretty little peach faux jewels [they have not scanned well and look better in reality].

  1. This and the previous bee one are lovely.

  2. very nice. I like this hand as well, although I've never tried it. I like that the quote is hidden. Very nice elements.

  3. Lovely! And love that marbled paper, too!
