Torso Shaped ATCs



I love making ATCs and recently saw some unusually shaped ones on Cindy's blog. She agreed to swap a couple with me so here are the two I've made for her.

Both are made from mountboard and have backgrounds of melted beeswax and oil pastels and crayons. The first one has a printed image and the second a rubber stamped image onto paper from an old French dictionary, sealed with Gesso. I sprayed some gloss varnish over both of them, but the second one blurred a bit - still I think it still looks ok. Hope Cindy will like them anyway.
