As you may have noticed, I like to make things in series of three.
So, here are three new ATC's I made:

The base of these ATC's is pastel drawing paper, in three different colours (enforced with sturdy paper on the back).
I drew an oakleaf on a page of a vintage French schoolbook, cut it out, and decorated it with ink. Then I pasted it to the pastel drawing paper.

Tip: I have a box full of molds/patterns I made out of recycled cardboard (piza boxes, cerial boxes, etc.). Whenever I need to repeat a certain shape, I make a cardboard pattern/mold for it and keep it, even after the project is done.
This autumn I collected and dried some oak leaves in various shapes and sizes and then drew them over on cardboard to make a nice set of molds. They come in easy for card making, ATC making, making felt figures, etc.
Every time we pack a box of old paper to be collected with our garbage, I take out any piece of cardboard that can be reused and store them in a see through box.

Okay, I'd love to get your comments on my new series of ATC's!

I really like these! I'm a sucker for practically anything on or made from book pages. I think these really work... well done!
