Going Crazy About ATCs? - Har jag blivit tokig i atc:er?

For a long time I haven't had any energy at all to visit my crafting room. Most days are just filled with work, work and work. Recently, though, there was an ATC-swap at En liten butik i Mörrum which I joined, and I am now impatiently waiting for some beautiful cards to find their way to our mail-box :-)

Yesterday our grandchildren came for a visit and after lunch we sat down at the kitchen table and crafted away all afternoon. I made a new set of five ATCs of which three have already been traded. If you would like to swap, no 3 enjoy! and no 4 this is the life are still available. I seem to have gone totally crazy about ATCs and colours green, blue and red. I love this slightly yellowish green colour which reminds me of early spring birch tree leaves.

I've used pages from an old book and sprayed and splashed colours randomly all over them. Then I sealed the paint with decoupage glue to avoid bleeding.

This project was entered into the following challenges:
Twisted Tuesday Challenges: #59 Splatter and Chatter
Fairy Tale Challenge Blog: #76 Newspapers + Bookpages
Charisma Cardz Challenges: #37 Favourite Colour Combo

Thank you for stopping by today. All the best!
Hugs, Outi



Under en lång tid har jag inte haft någon energi alls att sätta mig i pysselrummet. De flesta dagar tycks bara vara fyllda av arbete, arbete och ännu mer arbete. Nyligen fick jag dock nys om att det arrangerades en atc-swap hos En liten butik i Mörrum och den ville jag så gärna vara med i, och nu sitter jag och väntar otåligt på de fina kort som jag hoppas ska hamna i vår brevlåda snart :-)

Igår kom barnbarnen på besök och efter lunchen bredde vi ut oss med pysselsakerna på köksbordet och pysslade tills de åkte hem framåt kvällskvisten. Jag gjorde en ny omgång med fem atc:er och tre av dem är redan tingade. Om du skulle vilja byta, så finns nummer tre (text: "enjoy") och fyra (text: "this is the life") kvar. Det verkar som om jag blivit helt galen i atc:er och färgerna grönt, blått och rött. Jag älskar den där lite gulgröna färgen som påminner om de tidiga björklöven om våren.

Jag har använt sidor ur en gammal bok och sprayat och skvätt färg helt slumpartat över alltihop. Sen har jag strukit på decoupagelim så att färgen inte ska blöda och kladda.

Tack för att du tittade in idag! Ha det gott!
Kramar, Outi
