"Love" ATCs, Jan 2006

My first ones! I used paper on cereal-box cardboard, a little paint, a little cellophane, a little gold leaf, and an embellishment of polyclay hearts wrapped with wire and kissed with a rhinestone. I applied a heavy coat of glaze, and edged with copper foil tape.

I started with the patterned fabric that my friend Jen brought me back from her honeymoon and Hawaii.... and I hand-beaded some, hand-embroidered some, and machine embroidered a little. Each one was different...

A scan of my grandma's Aunt Wilma & her friends... scanned & printed on fabric, hand-colored a little, and trimmed out with some lace given to me by an 80-something-year-old-quilting friend- she says she got it in Ireland. (Grandma's family is part Irish...)


Button Swap Fabric ATCs

Button Swap Fabric ATCs

Made with my old jumper, recycled buttons, and some FABULOUS linen floral-print curtains I bought at a yard sale! I used Timtex in the middle, I like the stiffer feel.

My first Fabric ones were the Black & Whites, done crazy-quilt style, then embellished w/ machine embroidery and beads. The purple one with the large button was actually for the "Beads" swap- I used micro-beads to embellish it.
