One might think it is rather easy to create an ATC quickly. Not so! I spend a great deal of time trying out pieces for the card. First you have to find a bunch and I mean a bunch of ephemera. Since I was at the beach I poured over brochures and coastal magazines in order to have beach images. Then since I had purchased matchbooks, I had to figure out how all this was to going to work together. Of course, you have to decide for yourself if I was successful or not. All I have to say is that it was fun! I do like having a limited amount of medium as well. That makes the job a bit less demanding. When I am home I am surrounded by all those art supplies I just had to try out. :-) You know what I mean!
