Time for some creativity


This ATC is for an ATC Technique Book that I am participating in. The background is the Dress Pattern technique that I have used before (see post about the Post it Note Swap). The idea for 'Jude and Trude' took ages to come up with as the background that I had created had me stumped. I knew that I wanted to collage something...but what?! Then in a 'light bulb' moment I thought of using an image from one of the 1950's era dress pattern packs that I have. Don't stress I didn't use the actual dress pattern paper for the background. I've kept all of the dress pattern papers intact as they are too precious to use for this technique. ( I may even make the angular apron for myself!) I tend to use some horrible '80's patterns for the back grounds....ohh just hideous!!! And as for 'Jude and Trude' I just love these two characters from the Kath and Kim show.

I created this piece for a friend after visiting Kelsey's blog and looking at her step by step process for creating a 5"x7" canvas. Thanks must go to Kelsey for showing me the wonderful scroll die for the Cuttlebug and its many uses.

I do like the dress pattern ATC, the colours and theme. Your canvas is great too - very earthy.
