I like to use original images from old books, newspapers or magazines whenever I can - I love thrift stores and ebay!  A lot of it is just collecting stuff over time and then sorting through a ton of old paper looking for an image I like.

me too! Also, another place to find semi-trashed books are library book sales.

More links:

On Flickr, type in "ATC collage sheets" and there are more but some are the same as "Free Collage Sheets". Click on an image and then when you are directed to individual's Flickr page, click on the image again. It takes you to a black background page and up in the corner it says "Show all sizes". You can then download the images in different sizes.

Also, preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'www.blog.worldlabels.com') for great free labels for all occasions and holidays.

I just wanted to say that I've been a member of a few ATC sites now, and nowhere have I seen so many thumbnails where the offerings were hand-drawn.  Some people treat ATCs as miniature scrapbook pages, with diecuts, stickers or embellishments, maybe color schemes, and very little else.  It looks like here, the "A" in ATCs counts for a lot.  Please understand this is not disparaging against more "scrapbooky"-type works (I've made a few of my own, so I'm hardly one to criticize)... it's just nice to see work where the artist's hand is so apparent.

I use my Cricut or print images from the internet.

I would love to do an ATC made entirely of drawing but I am not good at drawing  Sad

I just found out about a resource that I don't see on that list: all copyright free images from the archives of the British Library: https://www.flickr.com/photos/britishlibrary

Most of my ATCs seem to be made up of colors and die cuts around a theme. Sometimes they end up pretty nice, other times they look sort of crappy and unfinished to me. LOL! Grin
