Shell Seekers ATC's

Been pondering what to call this series of ATC's. I decided on "Shell Seekers". The female subjects in my work are usually seeking something, whether it be love, truth, wisdom, kindness or self knowledge. And the transfers are shells so, well, there you have it. The first one is "Harbors Quiet Desperation". The phrase is from "The Soul Thief" by Charles Baxter, a magnificent book.

Do you ever rediscover a tool or product in your studio? This week I fell in love with embossing powders again. I mix them like a mad scientist. I forgot about them for awhile. Shame on me! I layered this ATC using my home made paste paper. The next one is "Beauty always comes with Dark Thoughts."
I lost the origin of this quote. I will research and post later. My Bad. Again had fun with embossing powders and my favorite chalk pencils are evident in both ATC's.

  1. Hi Sharon, love the ATC's. The overlays I guess one could say are an awesome affect. You are a lady of many talents I can see.
