I woke up today at 3:30 a.m. when a blanket was mysteriously pulled out from underneath my arm and startled me awake. After laying there for about an hour and not falling back to sleep I decided to give it up and get up. You know the house is mighty quiet in between the snores around here.
I decided to kill time by scrapping some "quickie" things. We have a couple of ATC challenges that have been tempting me lately over at Scrap 'N Chat. But I have lacked the time to get to them. At 4:30 this morning, I found my time.
Artist trading cards or ATCs, as they are known around here, are small sized creations. The base is 2.5 x 3.5 inches, the same size as a baseball card. You can create any topic, use whatever medium you would like, and then swap them with other artists. I use them for random acts of kindness for my friends or I attach them to cards and layouts as embellishments.
September 2012 Challenge
|Theme: Spooky Layers|
October 2012 Challenge
I realize my "spooky layers" are not very spooky. but I LOVE that witch!!
So while I was waiting for the paint to dry, or should I say Mod Podge, I headed to the other challenges I have missed lately. I have been making truck loads of Christmas cards for work, so it was nice to make something that did not have a santa, snowflakes or a Christmas tree on it.
This one started off as a scrapbook layout sketch, but it kept screaming "CARD" at me. So that's where I went.
This one is a pocket card made from a paper bag that is a gift money holder.
I had planned on doing some more this evening, but I had book club and things were crazy around here. And besides I did get up at 3:30 this morning!!!
Until next time...
