How long does t 5takes you to make an atc? and what is your process?
I tend do do it very organic. Usually I have some idea what to do, but I do not have a very clear design in my head. And when I do, I am prone to changing it
Sometimes I am just messing about with techniques and I can use it for one of the themes.
So I might have painted cards or background paper. I use images from my stock and stick them on for the background. Or I search on google pictures or deviantart or clipart sites for pictures.
Then, another day, I might draw/paint myself, original or based on a pic I 've found online. Cut out lots of stuff.
Stick them on. Let dry overnight.
Embellish with gelpens, fabrics, embroidery, more paints, glitter, sequins and what have you... i really should get some distressing ink pads....
Then I tried to seal them with a spay sealer... that did not work out so well, so I'll skip that part for now.
the process of going through my PM's for writing all the envelopes and putting the name to the username takes quite a while too
I have now an "organized list" on my laptop. Hopes it helps.
All in all, I think i am a slow crafter but enjoy playing with the stuff. Some cards take me only half an hour, some way way longer but I am not sure how much "effective" crafting time is involved.
