WOYWW 72

This WOYWW thing really is addictive isn't it? Another scheduled post from me I'm afraid, but on the plus side that means another Tuesday evening with some crafty time! I've made a promise to myself to do more during the week and so far I'm managing to stick to it. I've been having a play with distress inks and Tim Holtz stamps and am loving the different effects you can get. I cut some random bits of card to play with, but I'm beginning to wish I'd taken more care and made them ATC size. Oh well, turning them into ATCs will just mean more playing, won't that be a shame!



I thought I'd add a quick close up of my creations. Thanks for visiting - head on over to Julia's blog to join in all the WOYWW fun, and I look forward to seeing all of your desks over the next couple of days :D

I really like the bird one. It looks like there is a shadow. What a great technique. They look very close to ATC size to me, but of course I don't have a ruler handy (grin).

I don't think I could ever get any crafting done when I was working and getting my Ph.D. Hats off to you for even making a few things.

Don't worry. If you say they are ATCs, no one will doubt you....the camera keeps amazing secrets from the world. If you say they are ATC dimensions, that's what we will see them as.

No, I don't beieve in cheating, but occasionally it is necessary!!!!

Have a great Wednesday

peggy aplSEEDS said...

Those tags are great - looks like you have been having lots of fun there! - thanks for sharing (No 46)

Ciara said...

Are they smaller than ATC size? If so, you could mount them onto some card that is then just ink up the edges!

Either Mojo is very smart or also learnt about chairs on wheels the hard way!!

Some beautiful projects you have been working on. Think my favourite has to be the bird. I'm a newbie to the WOYWW so please be gentle with me!! Best wishes, Kym (No 42)

Love your pieces, especially that bird!

Julia Dunnit said...

Gorgeous works gal - I love that the colours are so rich and cheerful. Turn 'em into a collage rather than hack em into ATCs...could make mini frames and have em in a mini gallery type bigger frame. See - you've sparked me off now!

Cardarian said...

A very late comment - just before the next woyww - still better late then never! Love your Tim Holzian bits - yes maybe ATCs would be nice!
Hugs,
