Good Friday all my crafty friends!! Here is this coastal state of Georgia we are very happy it is Friday! We are at work here in my town, but there are many evacuees here from the coast! I'm so thankful to be enough inland that we are relatively safe from Hurricane Matthew! Please pray for those who have fled the storm and the safety of those who have decided to stay and wait it out! We, who believe, KNOW that God is at work in the midst of the storm! Blessings to all those.

I thought I would FINALLY share my September Pick A Stick Challenge ATC!!! LOLOL I had it done in time for the challenge, but as I have been so extremely busy, I didn't have time to post and share! It would seem that is the story of my life! LOL

The prompts for the ATC challenge come from the Stick Pull in the Pick A Stick Journal pull! There are ten sticks drawn for the journal challenge and then there are 3 pulled from the ten sticks pulled for the ATC challenge.  The prompts for September were as follows:

And here is my ATC for the September Challenge:
As always, I had great fun doing the challenge for September. My journal that I have already shared for the challenge started out with a blank space, but then quickly fell into place and then the ATC was quick and easy from there! 

I began with a coat of gesso and then added my black marker around the edges to fulfill Step #1, which was add black marker or pen. Step #2 was add collage printed tissue paper or wrapping paper and I added the same tissue paper from my wonderful online friend Sue Marrazzo who gifted it to me with our ATC Swap! Thanks Sue!!! And then I just proceeded to use various acrylics to "cover up" the gesso along with black acrylic on the edges to "cover up" to fulfill Step #3.

I then had this really beautiful vintage photo that I simply fussy cut and layed down with Mod Podge and then simply embellished with things in my stash can. Pretty simple huh? I thought so and loved how it turned out!

Well, I was better late than never and I look forward to my October Challenges now that many of my promised projects are done and I can breath! LOL I encourage you to come play along with us in October over on the Facebook Group, we have lots of fun, enjoy the challenges and all the lovely art from other participants!

I hope you all have a lovely Friday where ever you are here in the states or abroad and remember to pray for those associated with Hurricane Matthew!

Have a blessed day! :)
