Growing Up is Optional


I just recently traded ATCs with a very talented artist.  Here is my ATC. I discovered ATCs about 5 years ago.  I was completed addicted. I have been out of practice making ATCs.  Working in such a small format was a nice change of pace.

I love Tim Holtz’s style with all things vintage and I love the bright Dylusion colors. I decided to combined my two loves into this ATC and I call this style “VINLUSION FUSION”.  The photo is one of Tim Holtz’ Photobooth pictures.  I look at the picture and have so many questions for Peggy Sue. (The name I gave the little girl). What grade are you in Peggy Sue? Is this a school picture or a professional picture?  Where do you live now?  Do you have a family? These questions and many more help me shape a beautiful life for Peggy Sue.

Do you make up stories for vintage pictures you have in your home?

  1. The ATC is beautiful, Jade, and it is fun to make up stories for “Peggy Sue”. I know she’s a very happy little girl. I like to think she’s celebrating her birthday, and all the bright colored tissue papers are wrappings from the gifts she received. She likes glitter, too. I think she’ll always remain a bright-eyed, smiling child to me. Peggy Sue is a perfect symbol for hopes and dreams and the joy we find in creative expressions.
