This is an ATC I made for a special swap with the theme "red" I used a digital collage re-worked from one of the pages in my altered board book for the background of this ATC. I placed a torn strip of double sided tape along the top left side of the card and left the release paper on while I glued 3 colours of micro beads around the main image. Once the micro beads were dry I removed the release paper and added red and multi extra fine glitter.Hard to see, but there is a bit of Fired Brick Distressed Stickles in the transition from glitter to micro beads. The computer generated words are mounted on thick card and attached with double sided tape and the beads are strung and glued with Tacky glue around the main image.
This is my little space to share some of the things I create in my Attic Studio, sometimes on the porch and occasionally when I'm out and about. You will see a mix of paper arts and needlework. I hope you will find something of interest while you visit. Comments are welcome, but will need to be moderated, so it may take awhile for them to show up. Sometimes I will do a random blog goodie based on comments with a link that I can use to contact you. You just never know when yours will be the one.
