This year I've been really struggling with my crafting - Mr Mojo seemed to disappear completely and I had a bit of a health situation that was worrying for a while and needed a complete break from my challenge design teams. I didn't do any crafting at all for several months and wondered if that was it :-( BUT...the mojo is back, I've had a lovely couple of days playing this weekend and for the first time in I don 't know how long have created something just because I wanted too !! I browsed some challenge sites and inspired by A Vintage Journey created a set of ATC's -
I made the backgrounds using Tim's mono printing with stencils and paint technique from Chemistry 102 - I used bright cheery summer colours and stamped with Archival black for contrast.
The stamps are all Tim Holtz and the stencils I used a bit of a mixture.
I used Pebeo and Adirondack paints and Distress inks.
As the backgrounds were so bright and busy I didn't want to over do the embellishments but did feel they needed a little something so used coloured staples and ribbon for just a finishing touch.
As well as A Vintage Journey I'm also sharing my ATC's here -
As it's Bank Holiday Weekend here I'm looking forward to another day's art tomorrow too :-) Esther xx
