ATC Art Shrine & Crafty News

Hi Everyone!

I mentioned yesterday that I had some news to share…

I am so happy to be able to let you know that I am a design team member for 2017-2018 for ColourCraft and I am looking forward to creating lots of nice new projects for them in the coming year.. and of course you will get to see them all because they will all be featured here on my blog πŸ™‚

I also have an ATC Art Shrine to share with you… this is from a company called That’s Crafty and they can be bought from http://www.stampersgrove.co.uk

they arrive in kit form and you have to glue all the bits together to make the shrine, you get 3 in a packet.. I gave one a coat of Deco Art white gesso, then cracked open my new set of Tim Holtz mini Stencils and used 2 different ones along with Deco Art Modelling Paste

I also used 2 pots of Brush crystals to obtain the gorgeous colour on the shrine.. Turquoise and Light Brown…

I popped in an ATC that I made some time ago, just to see what it looked like up against the ATC Shrine

I’m loving how the blue pops through the brown in random places.. and I am looking forward to decorating the other two soon… not sure if I am entirely finished decorating this one yet, I might add something else to the front, but if I do I will be sure to post an updated picture

Coffee Filtered ATC’s

Hi there everyone… Happy Thursday to each and every one of you πŸ™‚ I’m now officially on 4 days holiday for easter πŸ™‚

So this evening I headed up the garden path and made some bits n bobs in my wee shed πŸ™‚

ATC’s were on the agenda for this evening and I made 3 all live over on Ustream.. it was a hoot tonight, so a special thankyou to all the girls who came over and kept me company xoxx

Here is the first one I made and this one has its very own “holder”

and then I made the ATC to go on the inside, which I called Clockwork Rabbit

Then I made some background papers from coffee filters that joycie sent me over, I used distress inks, stampin up inks and acrylic paint watered down, whilst following the new colour charts that joyce sent over

Meet Carrot Boy πŸ™‚ this is 1 of 2 I made this evening and this one I made specially for Joycie πŸ™‚

and I nearly forgot to say… I made a homemade bird feeder earlier on this evening using an empty toilet roll tube

Spread with Peanut Butter then roll in crushed nuts and seeds πŸ™‚ then thread onto a branch and the birds will love you forever ❀

the birds will be wiping their beaks on my fences after scoffing this lot πŸ˜‰

Thanks for popping over and have a great easter weekend xx

Vintage Mushroom ATC Series

It’s been a blowy / rainy kinda day here today.. in between hanging out washing and cleaning out the animals I squeezed in a bit of crafting in my workshop today πŸ™‚

I made a set of 6 ATC’s today using the vintage mushroom collage sheets I bought online last week.

I quite fancied doing an ATC swap but wasnt sure what it all entailed,.. so i’ll do a bit of investigating and see what’s what and maybe come back later on next week with a wee swap πŸ˜‰ (if your interested just give me a wee shout).

Just a Note … For You … & Spring ATC Swap!

Helloooooo .. It’s been a while! and I have been a bad blogger/crafter πŸ˜‰

I’ve not been making an awful lot of anything lately, work and home are real busy at the moment and not leaving an awful lot of room for craftiness.. so what did I do? Β I joined a couple of swap’s over at your paper pantry to try and get into the swing of things again πŸ™‚

I have almost finished the Springtime ATC Swap (picture right at the bottom of this post) and I need to make a start to the Recipe Card Swap that Yolanda is hosting, just need to find out what group I’m in and how many I need to make.

I made a couple of small cards last week trying out one of the new stamps sets I’d bought, if you are interested in the supplies I used on any of the cards just send me a message here and i’ll send you a supplies list πŸ™‚

Card #1 Just a note

Card #2 Just a note

Card #3 is made using some Design House Piggie Stickers πŸ™‚

and finally here is my finished ATC for the swap over at YPP.. .. I like how this turned out kinda vintage shabby chic springtime πŸ™‚

Thanks so much for stopping by πŸ™‚
