I played around with my paint dabbers today and mixed some colors on my craft sheet and painted with a foam brush onto a row-house atc. I used Sunshine Yellow and Sunset Orange for this one. Stamped with honeycomb by Inkastamps and Distressed Flower and Circles from I Brake For Stamps; then inked up the edges of some images I cut out of an Easter postcard with Old Paper distress ink and glued in place. I think it turned out bright and cheery! Punched a bird out of black scraps and glued in place to finish it off.

We started a round robin paperbag journal swap quite a while back on one of my atc groups and they all seemed to just disappear for a long time and have very recently begun to move again. Here is the two page spread I just finished for Vix's book with a "Friendship" theme. It was fun to create something for these books again. I hope it will inspire the rest of the gals to get going on them again!

Here is an atc I did for the Winner Takes all contest in one of my ATC groups. Heather chose "Vintage" as the style she wished to receive. I hope she likes my version. I stamped the image onto the back of packing tape; turned it over and dropped tiny piles of Pearl-Ex colors randomly, rubbed it in with my finger, then matted onto cardstock, added lace and a vintage button with the shank removed and popped up the matted image.

Here is my Magical Creatures atc for this month in my ATC and Inchies group. Inchies were Letter C. I went with coffee of course, but picture is pretty blurry. I tried several times and never got a good, clear shot. They look much better in person!

Here is an atc I did for the "Meow, Meow" swap on ATC's Are Us group. It is a "simple green spritz" for the background. I just love those, so easy and quick with great results.

Just playing around with monochromatic themes and came up with this and needed something for my Letter Y swap, so decided to go with yellow. I like how it turned out even though I am not a yellow fan!

Just playing a little with Tim's new "Canned air" technique. I couldn't possibly be patient enough to wait until my preorder of the new alcohol ink colors arrives, so used the old colors. I will try again once I have the lights and brights sets but it was fun and I like the results. Just overstamped with my only "new" set of Tim's stampsI have right now,as the rest are also preordered and I am very anxious to get them!!!!

Lisa is at it again and offering St. Patrick's Day images on her site every day. My youngest daughter was born on the 17th, so I always get what I can to celebrate the Green!
