Swap: love hearts

Decided to join the ATC swap in the Willowing & Friends FB group with the theme love hearts. I enjoyed working with materials I hadn’t been working with in a while…alcohol inks on yupo paper (right)…texture paste and glitters (left). Put the ATC’s in a matching card that I made a while ago with a gelli print.

Swap: 3 elements

After a few months break I’m slowly getting back into swapping…This was for an ATC that had to have 3 elements besides the background. I added yarn, a split pen, stitching and washi…pick three 🙂

Swap: backgrounds

A ‘double’ swap. First I received backgrounds from my partner and then I had to create an ATC with one of the backgrounds… From the 4 she sent I chose these two to work with. On both I used stamps. Fun swap!

Swap: May 2017 themed ATC

Challenge for this month was to combine Lily of the Valley and emerald. For some reason I find these hard to do…  I drew the little flowers and added a bit of color with colored pencil… made a background with a printed paper and added the quote with a micron pen.

Swap: Page protector, bookpage and ink

This was a fun technique! I put some drops of acrylic ink in a page protector and used a brayer to mix it up a bit. Then added two book paged and brayered again. The background was made! I used white ink and a stencil to create a little lighter part and then stamped the dragonfly and word. Added a few highlights and a shimmer to the wings… put it on a sturdy purple background and it’s done 🙂
