ATC backgrounds .. cheater style

balloon atc1I was cleaning off the top of a bookcase and I found this painting I had made for an exercise in transparency 4 years ago. Instead of throwing it out I figured I’d cut it up into ATCs. A couple of these can stand on their own, the rest will make great backgrounds. I wonder if you bought paintings at garage sales if you could cut them up and use them this way, LOL. Well, of course you CAN, but would you???

    hey good idea…. will be looking forward to a batch of ATCs now…..
    It would be kind of tough to cut up a painting if you thought enough of it to buy it…. mmmm… yeah…don’t know if I could. But…. you could always search out some that you don’t really care for and buy them for the cutting board.

    WHY didn’t I think of that?? I have some old paintings lying around too. You come up with the best ideas.

  5. What a great idea! Very clever idea, Judi!

    Brilliant! They’ll make very colorful & diversified ATC backgrounds. Hmmm … now what can I find to cut up …?

    Very wonderful idea, but I would have difficulty cutting up a painting too, especially if I spent money on it. I buy old books to alter and I usually don’t spend more than $2 each, yet I still can’t bring myself to tear them up half the time!
    I need to get back into ATCs… well, I don’t NEED to… I want to. But when will I ever have time?

    That’s a great idea. I’ve got some pieces hanging about that I don’t like anymore. It’s time for them to meet the utility knife. Mwah ha ha ha ha.
