I’m taking part in the February Swap ‘Til You Drop ATC challenge whereby we have to make a doodled background and then create 5 ATCs from that! These are’cookie’ backgrounds, but if you click HERE, you’ll get a better idea of exactly what I’m talking about!
Here’s my doodled background (and yes, it really is that bright!):
Then I cut it up to make these ATCs:
I took my snowdrops from an old textured greeting card, the little statue also, (isn’t he adorable?) and the poetry is from a book of English Verse which I found in the Freebie bin outside a charity shop! The flowery one is by W.H.Auden himself!
This was challenging, even for someone who enjoys a bit of doodling. To doodle an entire sheet of A4 cardstock is no mean feat! I started out by using a piece of sequin waste and some leftover paint to put down some shape and texture. Then I used Neocolour II water-soluble crayons to draw shapes and add colour to the gaps. I then blended them with a waterbrush and finished off with black and white Sharpie Poster Paint Pens. It took me all evening… well, a good couple of hours anyway!
