Sunflower ATCs

I was making a couple sunflower atcs for a swap, and for the one on the left, I decided to use a collage of paper shapes to form the flower. I was really pleased with it - the paper was textured cardstock, so the flower seemed to have lots of weight and depth while still looking semi-realistic. So, I've been mulling over an upcoming assignment for my Artists Books class - we have to make an edition of 15 books. I'm thinking I might use this collage method to make a series of different flower atcs and color copy them to construct into a book. Of course, much depth would be lost in the translation from original to copy, but I think it could work. Now... to decide on a structure. Oh yes, and actually make the atcs. Not to mention finish my altered book assignment first! (more to come on that soon)


  1. 1. I like both ATCs but I'm a sucker for cut-paper collage. If I had more time, I'd do more of it.

    2. For the edition. If you opted to do the floral collage ATCs, you could always try coming up with some fairly simple-shaped flowers. Then, you could cut them out and attach them with those glue dot thingies for some depth. Miss Fish's ATC here got me thinking.

    I can't wait to hear about the edition. Fifteen! Oi!

  2. Great thinking Z! I could still save time by color copying, but get a little depth with the glue dots. Thanks for the link, too. I'm not sure I would have gotten the message otherwise.
