Stay Inspired & Stay Safe!

Because of this hop and the severe restrictions of lockdown in Melbourne, I have been trying to find myself different projects every day just to keep me going!

I am writing this on September 24th - Day 49 of Leigh's hop - but as I am in Australia I may be a little ahead... but here are today's makes:

I have been doing lots of mixed media today - almost completed two journal pages and done these ATCs.
Remember the ATCs I made the other day (about a week ago)?

I explained the background then - by the way Angela, I used quarter inch wide washi as my masking tape.

Any way I still had half a dozen backgrounds left, attached to silver card.

This time I printed some images on greaseproof paper - I attached an A4 piece to a piece of card with washi so it would run through the printer. This greaseproof is like heavy tissue on one side, shiny on the other. I printed on the tissue side and glued the shiny side down with gel medium when I had cut them out. The images I used are from Oddball Art Co 
(CCC November Exclusive Set and CCC78 - Unicorn Spider)

Next I sprayed all 6 ATCs with Dylusions Lemon Zest Ink Spray, following this up with green Neon Paint.

When these layers had dried I added paint pen, ink and glossy accents.

By the way all these ATCs are now under my heavy squashing book in the hopes that they will flatten out.

I  will add these to Leigh's Linky

Happy Crafting!

  3. These are too terrific! I love them! Such fun!

  4. Thanks for that info, my tape was at least half inch! The lemon and green does add a touch of spookiness, great ATC’s.

  5. Those are all so wicked cool, the acid green is perfect for that spider!
    So happy to have you playing in my Stay Crafty @ Home blog hop!
    Stay Safe!
