Summer Memories ATCs
A small group of us have met every few months for the past few years to make ATCs with a theme. Mostly the themes are suggested by the time of year in which we meet: February was valentine ATCs; April was spring or Easter; July was Canada Day or summer, etc.
This past weekend the theme was Summer Memories. One gal made butterflies. Another did a series on outhouses. Another did collage memories of camping and one gal drew funny cartoons of her grandchildren's recent visit to her home.
I found old photos from trips that my grandparents had taken in the early 1960s. These photos were all discards: thumbs or backs of heads took up most of the shots. I collaged these onto dark blue ATC cards, trying to make them look like they were placed in old photo albums, using black photo corners and white captions.
