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:
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!
