House Shaped ATCs

Kitty's Beach House
There is another "Art-a-thon" happening right now through January 28th.  This one is for "house shaped" art of all sizes - inchies, moos, ATCs, chunky pages, etc...  Anyone may join in, you only need to join the site - new members are always welcome.

I have only made a couple of ATCs so far ... but it is always nice to make time for art.

"Kitty's Beach House" (shown above) was made with cut paper collage.  I added some detailing with an Indian ink pen and used some sparkly glitter glue on the fish and water.

"Little Gnome's Mushroom House" was made in similar fashion.  I cut an ATC sized (2.5" x 3.5") piece of cereal box, drew my mushroom shape with a pen, cut out the shape and sanded lightly.  I then cut and glued printed scrapbook paper to my mushroom shape and embellished with ink drawn images and a touch of glitter glue.

House shaped ATCs are so popular now, that there is a group of folks trading them year round:

Happy House Building!
