Tomorrow is the monthly swap at The Grind and I managed to get some ATCs made so I can go trade. The themes are octagons, oracles and octopi, but since I didn't have much time for creating art and I have lots of scraps I decided to go off topic. I used some cereal box cardboard run through the Zyron and I dug through my bag of scrap papers, glued with the Zyron adhesive. I left room between the pieces and added gold embossing powder to some of the ATCs and micro beads to all of them. I have added assorted rubber stamp words and images to each of the ATCs. There is another set of six ATCs over on my Flickr photos if you would like to check them out.
Because of continuing medical issues with a family member, I didn't make it to the card project today, but I did get there last Sat. and I have finally taken some time to post the card. The greeting card at Cherish The Thought is rubber stamped and coloured with Tombow markers and the image is layered over a pink cardstock. The card base is yellow with a die cut "apron".
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.
