Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a great day! The weather here is fabulous. Last night we had really bad storms that brought in some gorgeous weather! I love it! So I kept plugging away at ATCs and made some great progress! Here's a photo:
I know you've all have seen the Halloween ATC, but I made a video this evening showing all three of these ATCs. So it's in the picture.
I also accomplished something pretty big - I recorded and uploaded "The Basics of Paint 101". It turned out to be a "two parter" again! It seems I have so much to cover I can't get it all done in one video, or maybe I just talk too much...lol I hope you all love it and learn a thing or two. It will go live Thursday.
I also started working on two other ATCs that I are not in the above picture, I did show them briefly in my video share. They are going to be very different then anything I've ever done. I rec'd a super pretty butterfly die in the mail today that I had ordered from Papertrey, Inc. I used one of the butterfly dies to make a stencil by running it through my Vagabond on some acetate. Then I took the stencil and sprayed the back with Easy Tack. It worked pretty well. I also made some custom colors of molding past by using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Reinkers. I loved the way they turned out. So for now the stencil part is complete and drying. Tomorrow I will go to work doing some cool embellishing that I have in mind. I hope what I have in mind turns out good...lol
I'm pretty tired so I better turn in. Mike goes back to work tomorrow so it's back to our normal routine, which means the alarm goes off early.
