Catherine Scanlon-Matthews is running an ATC course over on the Creative Classroom and I couldn't not sign up! So over the next four weeks we are making a number of ATCs using different techniques and doing a swap, which will be great.
However, the first lesson was to make a book to keep the ATCs in. So this is mine:
Not a very good photograph as I had to take it under the halogen standard lamp in the study as it was so dark today (very cloudy and of course only a few days off the shortest day).
I used Crafty Individuals A4 ATC sheets cut into strips of three pockets. I then covered the ends with card and repunched them in the BIA. I made the book as Catherine had made hers by covering card with muslin and then attaching paper before sewing it all together. It really makes for a lovely book. I made a heavy card pocket on the back page and then when I bound my ATC sheets together in the BIA I placed a heavy piece of PVA on the back and this sits in the pocket. The ATC on the front cover is in a plastic cover. Hopefully I'll make a more appropriate ATC during the course.
