I decided to make some cute ATC flipbooks for my raggy doll sisters as a little treat to send through the post. It took me a few different sessions to put these together so bear with me with the many pics of the process.
I started with ATC cut from amazon packaging and made lots of layers of paint, paper and stamping.
I used a lot of different supplies and had lots of fun creating these (there are 8 of us in the group so I made one for me to keep too!).
Next I made page two …
Side one (awaiting finishing touches) and side two…
Again it was fun to just play with supplies I had to hand and make some cute ATCs.
Next session I played with alcohol inks on slightly shiny card and created these cards… after playing with the alcohol ink, I stamped and embossed a grungy background stamp from the stash, added back washi and then stamped the Bee onto some French bookprint.
The reverse I used the same alcohol ink but more of a blended finish and added some stamped leaves, die cut flowers and a sentiment with a fun resin centre for each of the flowers.
I also worked on the back card which I also made from corrugated card and added more of the neon pink paint.
This time I added it after adding some Tim Holtz tissue wrap with matt medium and also added some black gesso round the edge. I then used some art alchemy paint in black for some sparkle (it doesn’t really show in the photos unfortunately). I then used black gesso to paint the wooden Love word and glued them into place and added a sparkly gem and some dots of black enamel to finish off. They were still drying in the picture so not the best pics but you get the idea.
I kept the back really simple with scrapbook scrap paper and a stamped and sticker date. I later signed my name but that didn’t make it to the photo archive! Also the odd one out here was the one for me as I ran out of the paper I had been using for the rest!
I did add a couple more pages but didn’t photo them whilst unattached … plus included little messages for my friends. I did however make a little flip through video and share it on YouTube.
Then I punched the top of each card with my cropadile and used a colourful book ring to fix them together.
I then went mad with ribbon scraps adding little colourful bits of trim to each of them… here they all are on my floor ready for packing.
I hope you liked this little project, I certainly had lots of fun making them and thinking lovely thoughts about my friends, whom I got to know 10 years ago this year.
