I've been MIA lately...I got a little sick and I was rear-ended in traffic. Thank the Lord no one was hurt. My car has a few scratches but nothing serious. I haven't been in an accident in years so it was a bit of a shock.
On a better note, I have a few ATCs to share but haven't had time to take any photos. I don't know if I will upload before or after Christmas...most likely after.
I plan on enjoying my break with friends and family then I will be back to add the remaining ATCs.
Also, look out for my very last ATC post this month. Leave a comment there and enter your chance to win some blog candy!
I hope all is well and you have a safe and wonderful holiday!
Oh no! My last fabric ATC. I need to run out and get some more. I love playing with different types of ATCs. I'm thinking about using transparencies, cork, and clay. Goodness knows I have enough days in the month to get it done!
I had this crazy idea to make 31 ATCs for the month of December!
Each day I will share an ATC and at the end of the month I will have a give away.
I figure it would be a great way to end the year and use up some more of my stash.
So, here is my Day 1....
I stopped by Joanns and picked up this some new
Basic Gray Fact & Fiction chipboard stickers.
They were 50% off so I had to pick them up.
The giveaway details...
I will have a giveaway at the end of this month. All you have to do is be a follower and post a comment to the very last ATC post on the 31st of this month! I will choose a random winner the following week.
I'm excited to share this card with you. It took FOREVER to make! I just kept fussing around with it because I don't want all my cards and projects to look so similar but in the end who cares. As long as I'm havin fun that's all that matters!
Welcome to my new series! Each Sunday I will share an ATC using random items from my stash. I have so many scraps I can't just throw out so here is my solution. I hope I can keep up with it and I hope you get inspired to use up your leftovers as well.
I have an exciting project share today featuring Melissa Frances Resin Wings. I have wanted to incorporate my scrapbooking embellishments with my mixed media paintings but I wasn't sure how to approach to the idea. I got my wings out of hiding and used them as the focal point to this painting.
The background has many layers of paint, masking tape,
tissue papers and gel mediums to create textures and depth.
As you can see the resin wings take acrylic paint nicely.
I used chipboard letters to create my sentiment. I painted over them many times (I couldn't make up my mind on the color) but finally ended up with blue. I did lots of dry brushing with white on top of the letters to help them blend a bit into the background.
I had fun mixing in different colors and splattering paint everywhere.
