Valse Triste ATC

Back in November I guested over at Koukussa Kortteihin - a Finnish online community. I challenged people to make ATCs inspired by a piece of music composed by Jean Sibelius. You can read more about the challenge and see the original cards I made here (link)

As a thank you for taking the challenge I made an ATC for each participant of the challenge. They all had a similar composition and vocal point - a white butterfly perched on top of a mixed media background in black and purple. I used black gesso and mist in the backgrounds together with purple paint, mist and Gelatos crayon. The butterflies are made using tissue paper and folded in origami style

Thank you for stopping by today! Talking about being inspired by something - tomorrow is another "Inspired By" day! We are going back to the roots so to say... hint hint!

  1. Apua miten kauniita. Ihana värit näissä.
    Mukavaa viikonloppua sinulle.

  2. The little cards are just beautiful Riikka. I love the colours and the butterflies looks amazing.

  3. Какая красота! Зашла в ваш блог и обомлела! Решила набраться наглости даже и попросить у вас одну АТСку - любую. Все безумно хороши!

    1. Very beautifully! Called at your blog and lost the gift of speech;)) Even decided to ask one ATC from you, any - all are good!
