I sat down to play with collage sheets, scraps of paper and a glue stick and had fun creating a bunch of ATC's and these 3 were my favorites. I had a few goals: to keep things simple and flat, to use a neutral palette with an accent color, and to think about composition.
I thought she had a dreamy look (maybe thinking of her one true love?) so I placed her on a postcard and used a stamp with a man's image behind her head as she's dreaming of him.
This was a tall woman, so she needed a vertical background, and I added strips of paper to a scrap of handwritten text.
And finally Cléo de Mérode, the turn of the century French dancer - in this picture she's facing to the left, so I added my cut out flowers and butterfly on the left - and yes, I really did cut out around those tiny flowers; I like the way they look and don't mind the time it takes. I only mind if my scissors slip and I mistakenly cut off a blossom!
