Masculine ATCs

Happy Friday! I am back sharing my Masculine ATC's today... I used a mix of pattern papers and my Artistic Outpost stamps to mix up a series of ATCs. The theme was not only Masculine but also found objects. I pulled out all my bits and pieces to add interesting objects from my embellishments and bits and pieces.

My first ATC takes us to Paris during the Balloon Exposition:
 I love the color combination of the pops of red with black and white.

I moved onto the boy image and love how he is translucent against the blue wood panels.


This reminded me of artwork my sister created where she painted her people as translucent and blended into the background.  The work was described as us leaving imprints of ourselves in places with our memories.


The next ATC features the Englishman from the Loverly London plate from Artistic Outpost:

His image fits the sentiment from the same plate and I thought it was fun and quirky. I used an eye hook to give him a eye glass.

I love this image on my next ATC because of the joy on his face.

And the ruler broke easily enough to fit along the top and I had the perfect screw tops to attach to give it the rustic feel I wanted.

  6. All cracking makes, but it's still that weathered paperboy that has my heart - stunning... and I love the thought about imprints being left behind us.

  8. Fabulous ATCs but I agree with Alison (Butterfly) the little paper lad (as we used to call them when my brother was one) is so sweet. Love the pieces of script on that one too. Clever you, as always there is a little bit of something unique to each lovely piece of art.
