ATCs with Hearts of Collage, Stitches and Yarn
Hi! This set of ATCs is for a Heart Collage themed swap at ATCs for All. I got so excited with collage work with the background that I didn't want to cover it up completely. Thus the sown thread heart that allows the background to show a bit! I made the background with really small bits and pieces, used a couple shades of green mists to colour it and was quite happy with the result! I did use some white crayon for the hearts to pop out a bit more. My background paper was not too thick so I mounted the collage onto scrapbooking paper. Torn edges and machine stitches are good for a shabby look, I think. I was inspired by the May colour palette at Tando Creative − although I went with slightly darker shades. Thanks for popping in and happy weekend!
