More Christmas Cards
Need more Christmas cards. Decided to use some of the backgrounds I have on hand that are cut to ATC size to use on the cards. I think my arty friends will appreciate these.

Time to make some Christmas cards. I recently received some of Tim Holtz's stencils and a friend wondered how these were to be used, she especially liked the ray one. I directed her to Tim's blog. Then decided it would be fun to use this stencil in my Christmas card. Card stock in red with tiny gold sparkles in them Layered the stencil over the card and sponged on gold Encore! ink.

Mary-Beth's Birthday Page
I'm in the Birthday Club on Kindred Souls Art Group. We decorate a 4"x4" page for the recipient, leaving the left edge free of embellishments so the page can be bound in a book. Mary-Beth's birthday is in December, so I made her this page:

"Violet" Color Perceptions ATC
For December, in the Color Perceptions ATC swap on ArtVentures Group, the color is Violet. The ATC is supposed to be predominately violet, and be based on how violet makes me feel. For this swap, Violet is more blue than red and Purple (November's color) is more red than blue. To me, violet seems to be a color of mystery.
Started with a lavender piece of card stock, and stamped a collage image with dusty concord Distress Ink and used this ink to color the edges of the card. Then over stamped some symbols and other images with Spring Iris dye ink around the edges.
Altered a vintage image by using violet ink to print it, used a purple metallic Gelly pen to add detail, added some lavender netting as a veil, and added a feather. Also used the purple metallic Gelly pen to the eye image.

"Purple" Color Perceptions ATC
For November, in the Color Perceptions ATC swap on ArtVentures Group, the color is Purple. The ATC is supposed to be predominately purple, and be based on how purple makes me feel. For this swap, Purple is more red than blue and Violet (December's color) is more blue than red. I also love the Color Purple (and Violet, too!), purple gets me thinking and dreaming and imagining, so my Perception of Purple is Dreamy.
I got a paper towel wet and sprayed it with Wild Plum Color Wash, wadded it up and dabbed it over a sheet of background paper that had a tan/brown background. Let everything dry, and ironed the paper towel.

Sox's World of Color Journal
In the Kindred Souls Art group, Sox chose Sepia & Black as the colors for her journal. The pages done so far are luscious. For the base of the page (front & back), I glued down part of a music sheet and lacy looking background paper that were cut on the diagonal. On the front page, added some washi tape; along the diagonal, glued on some fabric printed ribbons. Made a large flower out of lace, crochet & fabric, placed a vintage looking photo in the center of a circular frame and added a large metal leaf. Used stickers and a Dyno-maker to create the words "dance with me".

Mechanical Marvels ATC
The theme on 9ATC Group is Mechanical Marvels. I knew I wanted to make a mechanical dragonfly, but couldn't find enough gears and watch parts to make 9. My sister was up visiting and went with me to the craft store and found lots of interesting bits in the jewelry dept. She wasn't sure how I would use them, but I'm happy with how it turned out. Thanks Laraine for this great collaborative project. I adhered the dragonfly on to some decorative background paper and colored the edges with a silver metal leafing pen.

Wax is the theme/medium on 9ATC Group. I decided to make a melted crayon background. I taped some crayons together above a piece of coated card stock and heated them with a heat tool while trying to hold it all upright and let the melting wax drip down the card stock.
