Vintage Gluebook ATC's






I am really enjoying the 'Your Vintage Gluebook' online class, although I haven't yet had the confidence to show any of my pages (I probably will when I'm happy with them). In the meantime us class members have been invited to take part in a Gluebook ATC swap and these are mine, all but one of which I'll post to the USA tomorrow. We were 'allowed' to add embellishments to these ATC's, but this time I've left mine embellishment-free. Wherever possible I have used original ephemera (and whenever I could bear to!)
The remaining ATC (and I'm not saying which!) is going to go to Larisa in Russia for a private ATC swap.

These are all divine Jo! Your backgrounds are amazing. Love what you've done with the 'not responsible for delays' background particularly. Who wouldn't be just delighted to receive one of these? Can't wait to see your pages. Pen x

Such a vintage feel to these ATCs, with their muted colours & the images are so well balanced. If your gluebook is anything like these, I'd love to see what you've done so far :o)

These really are great. You are too hard on yourself! They are so balanced and interesting and full of great details.... quite a feat with no embellishments as such....

I am sure your pages are brilliant!

Hasn't it been a great class?

Have a fun weekend.... I have a day out with a friend today - catching up, shopping, lunch and sun! :)

Love Karenx

These are beautiful! So much detail in such small spaces. I love the torn apper stripes in the "We are not responsible for accidents..." ATC. In fact, I like the torn paper everywhere you used it!

great ATCS and I love the photos of you all walking taking time out. I was doing that last week with my kids just visiting the beach and the forest so nice for them to be away from the pressures of school life and routine just chilling out and taking it easy
