Recycled ATCs

Every so often I like to just create art panels. Sometimes I'll just break out the Color Bursts or the Gelli plates and get messy! When I do make a mess with these art mediums, I tend to make lots and lots of panels. Some good, some not so good. Unfortunately those panels start to pile up and I have to do something with them. I decided to let go of formalities and just start using up items being neglected. That led me to creating ATCs with these orphans. Sometimes art work looks better in a 2.5 x 3.5 format!
 
This first set was created using Color Burst panels that didn't make it into a project.
I simply added some rub-ons or stamp, sequins, charms and staples.
This second set was created with Gelli print panels I originally created for the Boardwalk collection but didn't make the cut.
I was able to use up remaining tags with just a simple ribbon behind them. 
 
Don't be surprised if you see these floating around Retreat next month!
