Now that all my September ATCs have been received, I can share them! They're my first ever, and now I'm hooked. Worse than crack, they are Tongue

This one was the first one I made, to jiasaykea for her Zodiac theme:


I make them all with a piece of cereal box sandwiched between two pieces of sketchbook paper. It seemed to hold up really well to the watercolor, and they are very strong and sturdy.

then there is this one to gala_apples for her Hunger Game Districts:

If you don't get the reference, it is the footage of District 13, which the runaways Katniss meets in the woods notice has the same reporter as well as the same mockingjay in the corner every time. The reporter is made of 3-D scrapbook papers, and if you look carefully under her left arm, there is a rebel coming out of a hole in the ground

and lastly, to jillybeans for her People with Crowns theme:

Prince Jakob is bored of waiting for his father to keel over and make him king, so he entertains fantasies of hastening the process Wink

I'd also like to include the box I revamped to store my received ATCs in. It started life as a box my G-ma gave to me with socks in it last Christmas. It is just the right size. I gave it a kind of run down church feel, I think

Before:


After:

More views:


It has a silver corrugated cardboard "tin" roof with bronze sharpie "rust" (it's super reflective as a whole) and scrapbook paper walls, with vellum with script on it for windows and inking for an aged look . I'm absolutely in love with it right now Smiley

Thanks for looking Smiley C&C always welcome!!

I LOVE your ATCs and I hope you keep swapping with us, because I will definitely need more of your stuff for my collection.  ^_^  Your Hunger Games ATC is so detailed!  Love it!  And that box you revamped is so cool!  You should totally join an altered tin or matchbox swap sometime!

Thanks! The ATCs are so much fun because they're both easy and challenging at the same time. The size makes it a really low-commitment piece, so I don't have to devote a ton of time to them, but the size restrictions really make me think outside the box. I really love everyone's themes, too. And I completely drool over the altered tins and matchboxes, but they're so detailed and amazing that I've been hoping to develop my skills a bit more before trying one, it makes me so happy to know you like my stuff;D
