Working Small

2015 July 24

TGIF!  Hey guys, happy Friday!  Hope everyone made it through the week ok.  Heat wave is back along with the humidity!  On the bright side, getting closer to fall and I for one can’t wait!

Today I wanted to share two ATCs I created for the Life Book 2015 ATC swap.  I don’t create ATCs often, actually unless you count the altered playing cards I haven’t created an ATC in years.  To me it’s a challenge because you work small and that in itself is challenging when creating faces.  And to be honest, when I started on these ATCs I was mumbling to myself why I had signed up for the swap.  Boy am I glad I did!  I think my ATCs turned out great and I got awesome ATCs in return.


The theme of the swap was Courage so I decided to channel Micki Wilde and create a girl.  The background is from left over watercolor papers that Emma and I had brayered last year.  Like I mentioned earlier, working small is a bit challenging when working on the face but I think she turned out ok.  And I felt really brave in tackling this tiny girl, hence the sentiment which was typed on regular paper, cut and glued to the ATC.

My second ATC was made by using left over scraps.  Left over background papers, some cut strips from left over inked masking tape and a cut out heart.


And once I was done, I was surprised how quickly I was able to complete both ATCs and how much fun they were.  Definitely going to create more of these ATCs.

That does it for me this morning.  Next on the agenda is updating/re-writing my resume because it’s time I start to look for a job.  I needed the six month off after the last two hellish years but it’s time to go back to work and use my brain Smile.

Until next time, have a wonderful weekend!
