For these ATCs we were tasked to create rubbings. I first could see myself going to a cemetery and rubbing tombstones. Then I got the idea of rubbing texture plates. These were really successful. When I was in Manzanita I was telling the Creative Gents about the ATC project, it was suggested that I rub stencils. I had some with words which I think might be Seth Apter stencils and I was in heaven with all my rubbings. My next step was to see how they would go together as an ATC. When I was done I liked them but was thinking perhaps they needed a focal point. However, I also thought they stand alone and that is what you see.
