It's fun to ring in a new year. Plans are made, goals listed and happiness abounds. Each year goals are created for a positive course to follow and it usually goes smooth for a while and after the first few weeks new things appear that delight the eye and the plans change and the goals are altered.
Last year I had set out in the beginning to use all the stash I had accumulated over the past years, but before spring arrived I had moved homes and this had me either boxing or leaving many of the supplies I had accumulated over the years. This year my goals are a little more simplified. I plan to make a little creative space every day and to finish those projects already started and then to created some fun new artistic items that I have always wanted to create, but never got to try! Recently I have unpacked quite a few of the things I was able to bring and happily have been able to be have a little creative time. So I gathered some supplies to assemble some ATC's. I have wanted to create some girlie girl cards for some time and am delighted to share them here.
This ATC was made for a special friend. I was inspired by the lovely Dior stockings I used to purchase from France. They were lovely and so very feminine.
This is the Paris 2012 collection. They were so very fun to make. Many of the images used are from Artchix, which is a favorite of mine. I have also used a few patterned papers as well as several stamped images. I grabbed many ink pads, but as yet have only unpacked a few, so most of the cards were edged in brown or silver ink.
I have some extra blank board to share. If you would like several sheets cut to ATC size, post a comment and I will pick someone at random from among the comments on Saturday morning! Let me know if you have ever used cardboard as a substrate or if you use watercolor paper or a heavy card stock? I enjoy creating cards on this board as it is wonderful and the cards have such a nice weight.
Thanks for your visit!
Until the next post,
