This month's theme on 9ATC group is Numbers. I stamped the backwards Numbers stamp onto an embossing folder with black soot Distress Ink, then embossed this numbers folder on printed paper, this prints the numbers on the paper, but not where the embossing folder raised the larger numbers.

I received Lynn's wonderful World of Color Round Robin Journal as part of a swap on Kindred Soul's Art Group. Lynn choose Red & Black as her colors. These colors make me think of Spain & flamenco! I painted the page red with acrylic paint and covered with a black lace that had a decorative edge Used the decorative edge to hang over the right side, sewed the edges together and added various red beads.faux velvet I had in my stash, along with some black lace and a black bead.

For August, in the Color Perceptions ATC swap on ArtVentures, the color is Yellow. The ATC is supposed to be predominately yellow, and be based on how yellow makes me feel. For me yellow feels hopeful, and got me thinking about the Yellow Brick Road and humming "follow, follow, follow, follow, follow the yellow brick road!"
I used two shades of yellow card stock and ran them through a brick embossing folder that had vintage photo Distress Ink rubbed on one side. Made sure to run the bricks vertically in one shade of yellow, and horizontally in the other shade of yellow.
