Genuine Folkard ATC Mini

 


Happy Monday everyone! I'm excited to share my very first ATC mini album with you featuring the Unforgettable Alice Pack by Nicecrane Designs. This pack has several collage sheets included and I used the Genuine Folkard ATC/ACEO background collage sheet for my album. It has several images from Alice in Wonderland and my daughter claimed it for her own the minute I finished lol.



 
 


For the base I recycled corrugated board and distressed all of the edges. Old book paper is the next layer and I sprayed each one with color mists to bring in a pop of color. The ATC's were next and I skewed panels for a touch of whimsy. The next decision was to choose which embellishments to use and I've become a big fan of Studio Calico's wood die cuts so you'll several of those throughout. The one item I found in my stash that I've had for awhile, Vintage Findings by Making Memories, is actually a sheet of ephemera in a metallic silver finish. The flower stems were perfect for the cover but I needed to tone the silver finish down and ginger alcohol ink did the trick. The bird is also part of the ephemera sheet and I used Sailboat Blue to turn him/her into a pretty little bluebird. Prima roses, Webster's Pages Lotus Blossoms Whimsies, a T!m Holtz memo pin, Spare Parts button and WMS twine add the finishing touches to my front cover. To bind my album I punched a 1/16th hole in the upper left corner and slipped a 7 Gypsies book ring through it and added seam binding, gold twine & ivory ribbon. Here's the rest of my album.

First of all Lisa thank you so much for choosing my altered match box chest for your POTW, I am extremely flattered.

I'm not surprised that your daughter nabbed this. It's amazing Lisa. Fantastic way to use those images. You rocked this girl! Hugs!

Complete whimsy and fun! I could have looked at 50 more pages of these. It's great when you have the sentiment, "Everyone's mad here" because it instantly releases you from any rules..anything and everything is welcome and boy oh boy L1, did you ever plunge in! The inking, coloring, embellishments, textures on even the smallest things, all so perfectly and purposefully strewn...I LOVE IT!!! Excellent use of Ignacio's images.

Lisa, this is utterly wonderful! So glad I persevered with catching up with blogs I've missed in the last couple of days, or I'd've missed this absolute gem! Love the Nicecrane images, and your glorious higgledy-piggledly pages are perfect for the unsettling nature of Wonderland. Plan to come back and look properly when it's not the middle of the night - bookmarked!
