On the beach ATC's

More ATC's, loved doing these.  We had to make a set of three beach themed ATC's for a one on one swap.   These are mine (Yes, I do know there are four but I was enjoying making them). This was for the UK-Irelandcraftswap group on facebook.

These are mdf atc blanks that I covered with a home made texture paste and  painted with acrylics in beach colours.
I printed out the boat, shoes, starfish and shells.  Used glossy accents to stick them down and to give them all some dimension.  I cut the beach huts out of chipboard and coloured them with white acrylic and added detail with  Sharpies. The roofs are crackle glazed and the huts are glossy accented. The string is a piece of Jute garden twine that was aloso stuck down with glossy accents.  The titles are printed on card and distressed and aged, then backed onto  blue cardstock that was also distressed and ink edged.  I love the little titles. is an international group, if you want to join in, you do not have to swap internationally unless you want to, You can take part in challenges, some of which have prizes.  If you don't want to take part but fancy joining in a chat or two, please do. xx
