well, while i was in china i made a set of three ATCs two i gave to my closest friends before i left, and i only have one left. its number 2 in the set of three. I used many different medias in my set including chinese silk, newspaper clippings, card board and a chinese knot. a symbol of good luck.
i titled the set "zhong guo wen hua" which basically translates as chinese culture.
im sorry there is only one picture. i should have got a shot of the set  Sad.. but here it is!


tell me what you think? this is my first ATC i have ever made, im quite proud!
its alittle warped from all the glue, so sorry about the blurry ness in some parts.

This is very pretty. I really like the cord knot

 Its just a  shame you dont have pics of the other two -  but so long as the people who you gave them to liked tham thats all that really matters.

I thinks it's a wonderful tribute to your time spent there.  The knot musta' taken forever!

well, i was given one by a friend which had a weird dangling thing on it. i ended up trying to replicate the knot but ended up just cutting it off and then sticking it onto the card.
