Seashell ATCs



I actually made these a few days ago, using found materials - the background fabric and the buttons I found in my mother's stash; the metallic ribbon was from a yard sale; the mesh was from a bag from a shop; the shells, stones, bits of metal I found on the beach in Lusby & Calvert Cliffs and the beads - well, I found those in the bead section at Michael's (nobody's perfect!). Already traded most of them on ATCs for All... Lots of lovely new ATCs coming my way, hurrah!

What wonderful little "postcards" from your summer vacation you've created.

So, is this part of relaxing on vacation? :) They are lovely!

They are so sweet - how do you fix the shell on there though. Do you just glue it?

Love anything made with shells and so, I think you Seashell ATC's are wonderful.

How pretty. I love seashells. Just had an unexpected few days in France and was bereft of my craft space ... could have been doing something useful like this!

potterjotter - not sure you will see this, but I can't reply directly as you are set to no-reply... Anyway, the answer is yes, I just glue the seashells. But I use a serious, monster strength craft glue called E6000, which is also good for gluing metal and other things which resist lesser glues...
