Lock and Key Atc's

Here are another set of 4 atcs made for a group swap, the background papers are made with distress inks, stamped with Mona, the lock and keys are also stamped onto card  cutout and attached with tiny brads, I found it awkward to cut out the keyhole in the lock with a scalpel but think that it was worth it, hope that the girls liked these !!!!!

Tim Holtz

I was recently in a group swap for atc's made using at least one Tim Holtz product, there wasn't  a theme for this one just the use of his stuff, distress inks for the backgrounds  and I used a couple of his stamps, hope to get my swap returns today ??????

Chipboard tiles

In  the  vintageatcuk group that I belong to we recently had a tile swap, the chipboard tiles were  to go onto a canvas background that the group mum, Ali Brandist, kindly sent to us,

the themes  were, favorite number, birth sign, halloween theme with a quote,  the word Serendipity and the initial J, the 5 tiles ranged from 1" square up to 4 1/2"  x  2"

here are the tiles that I made using acrylic paints, inks, glitters, images, tissue papers, glimmer mists, beads, stamping etc

Dream atc's

Another set of atc's, these were made for a group swap they all had Dream Titles, 2 of the backgrounds are glimmer mists, 2 are done with the shaving foam technique the others are torn papers :-)

 More recent atc's, these are all simple collages with a bit of stamping on a plain white background, fun to do !!!!!

Vintage tags, Shabby Chic

We recently had a shabby chic tag book swap on the Vintage atc UK group that I am in, so I thought that I would show you my tags , as you can see we had to include a front cover and lightly decorate the backs, the back of one  is shown in the last picture, these tags were all swapped out and we received lovely books back that are bound with a ring and lots of ribbons, fibres, etc are attached, the tags are approximately 5" long, I loved making these, and didn't really want to part with them but I did get a lovely book back !!!!!!!!!

More travel atc's

 I love travel themed atc's, these are the latest ones that I made for a swap, hope that you like them :-)

Boy with wings

These atc's were all swapped out in the yahoo group Vintageatcuk, Ali Brandist is the owner off this group and what a great group it is, loads of swaps going on,  a small and very friendly group, has been up and running about 8 months,  so if you are looking for  a new group to join why not take a look at this one :-)

The backgrounds to these are all made from scrap papers left over from other projects, after  playtime I gather up all offcuts of paper, braids, ribbons etc and keep them for future use, I have used paints, inks, gesso and stamping on these backgrounds and am very pleased with the way they look !!!!!

It's been a long time !!!!!!!

Well it has been such a long time since I did anything about this blog that I thought that I had better do some catching up, I am busy telling myself that if I cannot take the time to pop in once a week then its time to close the blog down, I will try harder :-)

Here are some of the atc's that I made before Christmas, these have all been traded in a yahoo group that I belong to, I really do need to make more atc's for private trades,

Now for some that are not Christmas themed
