What I've Been Making



I've been spending a fair bit of time in the playroom recently, making ATCs, doing backgrounds and making a special little book for a friend's son's 21st birthday. So, here's a bit of a look at some of the results.

Above are 3 ATCs I made for an on-going blind swap...no particular theme unifies them...just what came into my head when I started fiddling.


Next are 2 ATCs that follow some of my oft-visited themes...you might be able to detect a thread or two running through my work.


Lastly, a friend who's son is turning 21 asked me to make her a card which included 2 pockets so that some pieces of writing she'd done could be incorporated within the card. I had a few ideas, but last Sunday,Di (my ...well, mentor is probably the best term for Di ) was showing us how to make a gorgeous little book. All the bells and whistles in my creative brain sounded and I thought...YES!! Perfect!! I think it's one of the best things I've done, and it goes without saying, the pictures don't do it the justice I think it deserves. My friend also loved it, thankfully.

Very creative. I scrapbook too and try to make cards now and then.
