ATC drawer with the Typography collection from Graphic 45

I want to show you today an altered jeweler converted in a ATC (Artist Tranding Card) drawer. At first, it was a wooden box, but I divided it in two pieces and arranged them in a different way.

The bottom is a shelf for ATC holders, with the same shape that magazine holders. There are six holders, labeled with letters from "A" to "F". These letters come from a sheet of 12x12 paper of the Typography collection from Graphic 45, the one labeled as "create". 

The frames, the lamp, the pen, and the paper rosettes, are made with pieces of the "inscribe" sheet. I took some labels from the "dream" sheet, in order to have some sentiments related with the art, and the process to create and share something, like the ATC cards. I used Tim Holtz corked vials, true pearls from and old necklace, metallic charms and ball chains as embellishments, and beautiful metalic beads as box feet too.

 Althought I could use the "journey" paper of the same collection to cover the boxes, I founded it very dark and I prefered to use a paper from Authentique, Be Mine, from the Lovely Collection.

The metalic flower cames from the european crafts company Artemio

There is a border that can show cards while they are not arranged, till they find a place in the holders. The beautiful frase "Creativitity takes courage", cames from the "dream" sheet. The atc with the digi stamp you see is an ATC I made with an Aurora Wings digi and coloured with copics. 

Finally, the back of the drawer has a beautiful wooden flourish that brings together the shelves and stabilices the drawer. It is painted with Americana golden acrilyc paint. Some black flourish are stamped and hot embossed with black zing embossing powder and a Hero Arts acrilyc stamp set (dot flourishes #97634).
