ATC Quarterly

When I started creating ATCS in early 2008 I became really active in a number of Yahoo Groups. On one of those groups (ATC World - I became a moderator and met so many wonderful friends all over the world.  One of those friends introduced me to a small ATC publication called ATC Quarterly ( published by Ronna Mogelon out of Canada.

Issue #24 has just been released and an article I wrote on making Non-paper ATCs was published.  In the list of items you need, gel medium is listed because some products in Canada are different to here in Australia, but I used an inexpensive Impasto / texture paste found in most discount stores ... anything with substance that dries clear will work for this technique.
An ATC of mine also featured in the Centrefold ... the theme this time was 'Dog Days'.  The focal point is my beautiful dog Beau on an ATC made completely from fabric.  Pam also had an ATC feature ... a hand drawn picture of Beau ... he's a bit of a celebrity in this issue of ATC Quarterly.

Here are some other ATC Quarterly Centrefolds where my ATCs have been featured.
ATC Quarterly Issue 18 Spring 2010. Ob la di, ob la da ... Beatles theme.
ATC Quarterly Issue 21 Winter 2011. Moo... Cow theme..
ATC Quarterly Issue 23 Summer 2011. Queen Bee ... Birds and Bees theme.
Pam's card also featured in this Centrefold.

The very last issue of ATC Quarterly will come out by the end of November 2011 ... the centrefold theme will be 'Goodbye'.  Will have to create something special for this publication that has been a part of my ATC journey since the beginning.

"One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility."
~Eleanor Roosevelt, 1884-1962, Former American First Lady~
