Fun with ATC’s – Classic Films

When I saw this challenge prompt over at Fun With ATC’s, I immediately thought I wanted to do something with it, because I love old movies. After which it totally escaped my attention and I forgot completely about it.

Untill this weekend, when I found myself in need of an ATC to send out with my little package to my one hundredth follower (Jan). So I made a few inspired by the prompt from Fun with ATC’s and some old movie stars I loved watching when I was a child.

Here are some close-up shots and a sneek peek at the package for Jan.

Summer of Color 3, week 4 – charcoal grey and pale pink

I actually made two projects for the Summer of Color this week. I started with a journal page, that at first went horribly wrong. While I was thinking about how to proceed with the journal page I made two ATC’s. I think they turned out really cute.

I finally knew how I wanted to finish my journal page and even made a video.

Since I filmed the whole process, I don’t have progress pics, but I do have loads of detail shots. So be warned, this is a picture heavy post.

WOYWW 213, or is it?

Yet another wednesday and time to snoop around the world at other people’s workdesks. If you’re new here and want to know what this is all about, just hop on over to Julia Dunnit’s Stamping Ground and she’ll explain it all to you.
Today it’s time for WOYWW 213, indeed really 213. Last weeks confusion about the number did give me a giggle here and there. I’ll make it short and sweet, well I’ll give it a go at least.

This time Not a photo of what’s on my workdesk, but one of what isn’t on my workdesk anymore. I got this really cute hanging rack at a discount. It has lots of room for all sorts of little thingies. Really happy with that.

I also decided to clean out this old ship trunk and store my recycled papers, cardboard and my dies in there. I finally got rid of the last remnants of my kids toys, the playmobil has now taken up residence in the attick.

I’ve been working on several things last week, but I can only show you some small previews, since they are either not finished, or they are finished but the video that’s supposed to go with it isn’t.

Here are some quick shots of what I\ve been working on.

WOYWW 210

It’s time for yet another What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday, #210 already, over at Julia’s Stamping Ground. Time does fly these days. If you want to know what this is all about, just hop on over to her blog and she’ll explain it all to you.

My desk is still a mess from making the book cover for my art journal while simultaniously working on a journal page for The Summer of Color, Week One. Who has time to clean up, right?
So I’ll just show you a tiny part of my desk this time, a sneek peek at my journal page and some of the things I’ll be using on the page.

I have now come to this stage in the page where there are some parts of the page that I realy like. I find this to be the most difficult part, because you know it’s not done, but going forward could go either way.
Here is one of the parts that I realy like in this page. Followed by some Lovely ATC’s from the WOYWW4 swap.

WOYWW 209

On my workdesk you can see the ATC I received from the lovely Nikki C.

Here’s a close up of the ATC and talking tag she sent me and some journal pages I’ve been working on.

My first swap

A while back I took part in the altered playing card challenge over at Sandee and Amelie’s steampunk challenge blog and I forgot to mention how happy I was when I found out that my altered playing cards were spotlighted at Sandee and Amelie’s steampunk challenge blog. Such a lovely surprise =).

These cards brought yet another suprise because after I posted my APC’s for the altered playing card challenge over at Sandee and Amelie’s steampunk challenge blog, I received lots of sweet messages. Among which there was one message from a lovely, very talented, lady. Her name is Dagmar and you can find her wonderful blog here. Dagmar mentioned in her comment that she would love to add one of the cards to her ATC collection. I was delighted that she liked them so much, so I wrote her a message telling her that I would gladly sent one to her.  She wrote me a lovely message back in which she offered to sent me one of her ATC’s in return.

I was over the moon as this was now my very first swap. I love sending gifts, I love surprises and I love getting mail, but…well there allways a but isn’t there, I didn’t know how to get the ATC to her in one piece. Nor what is common practice when doing a swap.

So I did some research and Dagmar sent me some tips. I found a nice free picture online for the back of the card and a bubble envelope, large enough for the ATC. I was however still afraid it might bend or break in the mail and after thinking a while, I figured I would make a little book to put the ATC in. And since I love making books and trying new things, I made her a little ATC booklet.

I even remembered to make some “making off” shots.
