Good Tuesday all my crafty friends! Wow, I have been so busy for the past several days! I have so many things on my table that I am SO EXCITED about!! This next year will be a new year of wonderful art adventures. These will be new journey's for me because I will be participating in things that I have never participated in before such as swaps and challenges, etc... I know a lot of my crafty friends participate on that level weekly or even daily, but as a busy working mom, I haven't had the opportunity to do that. So this will all be a part of stretching my self in a new creative way! I am truly very excited to see where God takes me on this road!
Today I will share a real "quick" project with you that I did on last night because I have other projects that have taken the front burner for me, but I did want to share something that I had been working on.
I did these quick and fun ATC's as an expression of my excitement for an ATC swap that I will be involved in next year. I'm getting my juices flowing!! LOL As I said these were quick, but lots of fun. I simply gesso'd them all and quickly smeared Silks Acrylic glazes in Pink Azalea, Pretty Peridot and Sky Blue in different areas over each ATC. I then took my Faber-Castell Gelato in Chocolate and pressed it through several different stencils from Crafters Workshop. I stamped with my favorite script stamp in StazOn Black over each one and then finished off with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain on the edges. Simple, yet a good thing!! I really liked them.
Not all "good things" come in BIG packages or in our case, BIG projects. Sometimes the little projects make just as much a statement. It think that is why I like ATC's. They are small, but not so intimidating, yet you can still have fun and have an impressive project when you are done!! If you haven't tried them, give them a whirl!
Tomorrow my daughter will be having dental surgery, to which she and I (for her) are very nervous about! I would ask that if you can, in your own way, lift her up before the Lord for a good surgery and full recovery! When all is said and done, she will have a million dollar smile! LOL!!
Speaking of smiles, won't you take the time to give someone a million dollar smile today!? You never know what a difference you may make in someone's life!
You be blessed today! :)
