Through the beach house window...


With these days of lockdown, I keep trying to think of different projects each day...

 (Unfortunately, it doesn't look as though it will be easing any time soon.)

Today I decided to make some ATCs. In fact, I made a set of 5 - each with the same Little Claire image, coloured with Copics, trimmed and attached to a beige background.
 I added black soot Distress Ink around the edges.

Of course that wasn't the end to them - I opened the shutters to show a little scene behind - again Little Claire stamps, coloured with a variety of pens.

I thought my room looked as though it was in a beach house
 so I like the Summery scenes the best.
I will link the next one to Crafting Happiness Challenges #65

I just noticed that Double Trouble Paper Crafting Challenge #66 is to Make a Scene.
 I thought any of these might be appropriate but then I looked out into our back yard and saw...

I decided to make one more ATC:

"Make a Scene" 

Thing 1: Trouble Maker 
says, "Use anything from your stash to create a scene. 

Thing 3: Twisted Sister 
The scene includes a mode of transportation - I have a boat.

Thing 2: Double Dare 
"If you have created a scene and have met the requirement "Around the World" (family memories, travel, heritage, bucket list... anything showing/documenting a place) then link your project HERE at The Paper Girls Challenge #207 and receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw."  

I will link here too...

Happy Crafting!
