I completed a journal swap with Pam last week. What should have taken me a month took almost 3! Whew!
I joined a monthly ATC swap in November. I have to send 3 ATCs to the hostess by the end of each month. Here are my November creations. We were having blizzard weather....totally unheard of here....so that is why my cards follow a snowy theme.
I started by cutting out a snowflake, you know, like when we were kids. Fold the paper into a triangle and cut out bits, unfold and there is your unique snowflake. I laid this onto my card and then spritzed the card with Glimmer Mists (sea glass and chalk white). I them removed the snowflake so part of the plain background shows. Next I painted on my branch and cardinal. The Glimmer Mists create such a lovely shimmer. I wish it showed up in photos.
Not to let my snowflake go to waste, I used it again to spritz my card and since by this point, being only printer paper and becoming a bit 'flaky', I glued down part of it the upper left of my card. Using acrylics, I splattered white paint all over. Finally, I pounced on a happy snowman and painted a scarf and arms.
