Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Mardi Gras Swap

   What fun! Glitter and feathers! I really wanted to join this swap. I love glitter and sparkle. I was afraid that I wouldn't have time to make my ATC's but somehow I managed to find the time to make them. It was a soup and sandwich weekend. I'm sure glad that I have a sweet husband and he puts up with me and my crazy art projects. Heck, he even encourages me. Maybe he's as crazy as I am.

THIS IS THE ATC THAT I MADE


   I drew the mask and cut it out of card stock. Then I painted it purple and black. I always paint anything that I'm going to cover with glitter so that the white of the paper doesn't show through. Then I covered it with glitter. I used double sided tape to attach the feathers. While the mask was drying I printed out the background image. I found it on the internet. Then I edged a piece of white card stock with gold paint and then glittered the edge with gold glitter. All this fantastic glitter was a Secret Santa gift from Raven a friend from one of the ATC swap groups that I belong to. I just love glitter and I have had so much fun playing with all the colors in the selection that she sent to me. Thank you Raven. When the gold glitter background was dry I attached my image on top of it. Then I attached my mask over the print background.

   These are every bit as fantastic and I knew they would be. I'm so happy to be able to add these to my ever growing collection. Thank you ladies for your lovely works of art.

Take Care
