Times slips away from me!
Someone brought to my attention yesterday that I had not added anything to my blog since March 31st! I have no idea where April has gone! It's scary how quickly times flies!
I managed to take some pictures of the some of the things I've been doing so here goes:
I am in this WONDERFUL group called The Sum of All ATCs which I adore! We have been working on laminate lately and when I went to get the small laminate pieces, I came across large laminate pieces (3x5) which I cut into ATC size. They are wonderful to work with! You can use alcohol inks, acrylic paint, anything! The Cropodile cuts through it like butter for holes too. I used by Fiskars Guillotine to cut them and the cut was clean and perfect. Here are three sample cards I did. I didn't change the backgrounds at all so that you can see how great they look with very little effort.
Valerie (the owner of The Sum of All ATCs) also hosted a Treasure Box swap. Everyone altered little boxes and put a surprise in them. I did an ocean theme (since I live in Key Largo it seemed only fitting) and put a really pretty gold decorated sea shell charm as my "surprise". The photos really don't do it justice. I was quite happy with it.
In my other group, Advanced Artist Trading Cards, Sue Young, a wonderful lady and artist, is hosting a chunk book swap of Provence. We each made 10 cards, these are a couple of the ones I made for this swap.
There have been so many other swaps and trades back and forth this month! No pictures though!
Thanks for looking!!!
