Pics from Saturdays Class and an ATC for a Swap

Morning all, I hope you are all keeping well, Sorry it has been so quiet here but I am still mid move and the craft room has pretty much been boxed up so I am in a bit of a crafty limbo.
I can however share this ATC I made, this was done for a swap hosted by That Craft Place's Face Book Group Natter and Chatter and after a little delay due to the move I know Erin has received it ;) The theme was Turquoise and Brown or use a non traditional crafty item.
Now this may not look to Turquoise but they did allow some leeway ;) but under all the colour washes and dry brushing this did start out a very nice Turquoise. My brown came in the way of the little picture frame that I gave a rusty finish to.I also decided to use a non crafty item which was the fuse.
At the trade show earlier this year I was lucky enough to be given a few bottles and products from the new Media line and they are what I have used on this ATC, I have used the fluid acrylics (love these) modelling paste, texture sand, interference paint and satin glaze.
The only thing I am not keen on now is the size of the portrait in the frame, It's just that little bit to small, I used one of Tim Holtz's rub ons but thinking back maybe I should have printed an image or found something different.

Saturday also had me teaching my second class at That Craft Place in Eastbourne here are some pics from the day and the projects that were made. It was the chalk memo board class. Their image transfers came out so well and its always good to see so much variation in finishes.

Thank you ladies for making the class so much fun, I can not wait for the next class x


  1. Such a glorious ATC - I just LUV all those textures :-)
