ATC's and a Motorcycle

Weird combination as a subject right?  Well let me clear up the weird title with a little show and tell.

Today I have four creative ATC's to share with you and a masculine layout.

To begin the process I used these wood ATC's as my base. 

ATC's are one of the greatest ways to utilize your scrap items, such as pattern paper, embellishments and letters/words.  I look at it as a miniature sample of your art to share with others.

Here (and below) are close ups of two of the ATC's.  Take a look at how these cards hold the various mediums along with many textures of embellishments.

I think this one is my very favorite.  The mini pine cones contrast perfectly with the wood.

Now on to my next project:

I created this layout centering it based on the motorcycle. 

Here's a before look of the motorcycle.

And here's the look of the motorcycle after all the distressing and inking has taken place.

For this LO, I altered the motorcycle first.  Then added lots of texture to blend the two elements together.
