I'm Back!

It really is tough to get back to blogging when you've been away for a while. I'm not going to try and play catch-up with what I've done in the meantime. I've been doing art but mostly I've been taking care of my health and have finally started to feel like myself again.

What I've been doing lately is working on another mystery envelope project. I decided to make atc's with the contents of this envelope. Since I've been sick I haven't felt much like painting, etc. so I challenged myself this time to use only the contents of the envelope plus a sharpie and a multi-colour ink pad. A few times I added a bit of something else (ie. glitter glue).

I ended up making 10 atc's as follows:
(as always click images to see larger)

At this point I had run out of larger images so I started making inchies with the remaining items and ended up with 18 1x1's. The backgrounds for these were made previously.

Random 1x1s

At this point I was pretty much finished, but as I had been working I saved every scrap of paper that would normally have been thrown in the garbage. I separated my scraps into colours and I made serendipity collages using the scraps and twinkling h2o's, then cut them down to atc size.

Collaged ATC Backgrounds

These are what I have left. I already made some atc's with the first set which you can see in my flickr.
