ATC projects etc

Hi everyone,

I made some ATCs.

I used water color crayons on watercolor paper for all of three ATCs.  For this one I used black and white Jacquard light body opaque paint around the edge.  The flower is painted with pearl blue Lumiere paint and the stem is Metallic Olive Lumiere paint.

Again I used the watercolor paper and crayons.  I stamped the yarn and knitting needles all over the paper using a VersaMark ink pad.  Then I embossed the stamped images with clear embossing powder.  I painted black over one side and white over the other and wiped off the excess paint.  The stamp came in the box of chocolates swap.

I painted perfect gold perfect pearls around the edge of the water color paper.  I wrapped the ribbon around and then covered the ends with three pieces of painted water color paper.  The edges are inked with a green ink.  The flowers also came from the box of chocolates swap.

I am in the process of altering two different boxes.  We have a little bit of a busy weekend planned so I'm not sure if I will get these done soon or not.

Today my husband and I went to Goodwill.  They were in the process of stocking the shelves.  They had TONS of stuff out!  We got some great deals.  I didn't take picture of anything.  If you want to see something please let me know.  These are some of the deals we got:

Telescope: $5
Three large acrylic quilting rulers (for use with rotary cutter etc) $0.99 each.  I bought three so that I could share one with my Aunt.  This was a fantastic deal!
Three bags of various wooden shapes $2.99 each
Four books, $1 (25 cents each)
A large box of greeting cards $5.99.  It has tons of cards in it.  Most of them are brand new dimensional cards.  The box is a greeting card organizer.  It has dividers for different types of cards.

My sister in law came over.  She gave me a small sewing box, six magazines, two beautiful baskets, and an Ott task light.

I feel spoiled today.   

Tomorrow Les and I are celebrating our 11th year of marriage!
