It's been a while since I've participated in my ATC Live Trade Group. I did get to see a few of my ATC sisters a couple weeks ago at Shelly's place. I was also pleasantly surprised to meet in person one of my yahoo group sisters from the enjoyMichaelStrong group - Laura! I also meet a new stampin sister Lynette, Laura's sister. What a fabulous afternoon of coloring and chatting - creative juices everywhere! The next day, I saw a couple more of my ATC sisters at the Creative Cards and Cuts. It was their grand opening week and they had some great deals.
Our theme this month is journaling. There's so many possibilities! For the background I used Dylusions ink sprays - love the vibrant colors. I was inspired by to get out my spray inks by some lovely pieces my ATC sister Cindy shared at our get together. I spritzed a sheet of Cryogen with water, then spritzed color with ink sprays. I laid a second piece of cardstock over the sprayed piece and pressed it light with my fingers. When I pulled it apart I had a mirror image of vivid colors.
Next, I cut up the cardstock into ATC size pieces, laid a stencil (The Crafters Workshop) over them and sprayed with white ink. I flipped the stencil over onto more ATCs.
I chose a variety of stamps to add different images to each ATC. I combined drawing and coloring tools - markers, paints, pens, color pencils - to create a journaling buffet.
I wrote a special phrase or word on each one.
Thanks for visiting!!
Take care and STAY POSITIVE!!
