Quick and Speedy ATC Swaps

I participated in 2 quick ATC swaps. I like doing them because generally, when I work on an ATC, I usually finish one in a day. I send them out as soon as possible, and I wish others would work as quick as I do, so that's why I like doing quick ATC swaps! Here are the 4 ATCs I made for these 2 swaps!

Summer Picnic: The background is from a shopping catalogue! 

The Positivity Effect: Inspired by an Indoor Percussion performance that I saw. Link is here: Old Bridge Highschool Indoor Percussion 2011
Although the video is just them practicing, it's still a good sound! The fiery look was inspired by an Indoor Guard performance, and their performance floor had radiating fire designs on it.

Fleur de Lis: The swapper I made this for liked Fleur de Lis, so I looked at all the materials I had, came up with a color scheme, colored the Fleur de Lis (which actually is a French stylized version of a lily flower) and put the pieces together!

Fancy Bottles: The person I made this for likes fancy and pretty bottles, so I put some on an ATC! What's interesting about this ATC is that any glossing and coloring done on it was done with NAIL POLISH! Nail polish is a great form of paint; it's glossy, sparkly, and has a nice needed sheen to it, which can be very helpful for artistic purposes.
