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.

Shades Of Green ATC Swap

   The thing that I love the most about making ATC's is the fun and creative themes that our hostesses come up with. I wish that I had time to do all of the swaps. That is only wishful thinking. I have other things that call for my time. Some are of art and craft projects and some are responsibilities. After all I am an adult and can't just sit all day and make these little art treasures called ATC's. I just had to do "Shades Of Green" after the hostess made the suggestion of dragging out the box of paper scraps that we all have, and using up some of those. Well, I have a BIG box of paper scraps.

THIS IS THE ATC THAT I MADE


   The background is a collage made from scrapbook paper. I attached the scraps using a glue stick. I pressed the glue out from beneath the paper. Then it was sprinkled with green glittered embossing powder, and heat embossed. I enlarged the image of a non slip bathtub sticker and cut it out. I applied Glossy Accents to the frog to make him appear wet and slippery. I painted green eyelids on the google eyes and pushed them into the Glossy Accents. Then I cut out the words "Be Hoppy" using my die cutting machine.


THESE ARE THE ATC'S THAT I RECEIVED

   This was really a fun swap to do. Even though it was called "Shades Of Green" there was so much freedom to go where the theme took you. It took me to frogs. Just look where it took the other artists. I was happy to see it brought fairies to someone's mind. I love fairies.

Take Care
