I managed to have a good crafting session on Saturday afternoon while Tim slept and Alex played at my feet. I made 8 related ATCs, all using alcohol inks in the background (butterscotch, meadow and bottle applied using the applicator), with gold embossed corners (StampsAway design), then an eyelet and thread (applied using my crop-a-dile) and then an embellishment in the final corner (butterfly or flower). The central images were all from the Crafty Individuals image book. I will be keeping 2 of these ATCs (the top two in the first image) and will swap the remaining 6 on the CMPC forum.
On Sunday I did manage to get an hour to do a bit of crafting and I decided to do another scrapbook layout. This again is an older photo of Alex...it was in fact the first smile we managed to capture on film. I just love the cheeky impish look that he has in this photo. I chose the colours to match the chair he was sitting on, and added embellishments in the top corner to also represent the fun images of butterflies, flowers and dragonflies on the chair. The design is from Sketch #58 from Pencil Lines. Any comments welcome. More soon,
