An ATC A Day - Day 8

Good morning scrappers and ATCers.

Well my little girl is 5 today!! We are having a quiet day at home after all the excitement on the weekend. It's too cold and wet outside to do anything anyway. Perfect weather for getting some scrapping done though!!

Today's ATC features the RW Laser Cuts ATC Miniature Scroll Frame....

...You may have figured out by now that I have a thing for Joss paper. A brilliant designer introduced me to it in one of her classes and I just love it. It's so good for antiquing. On this scroll frame I have applied some PVA Glue with my finger, waited until it was tacky and then pressed the Joss paper onto it several times all over the surface. This removes the metallic 'stuff' from the paper leaving it on the surface you have applied it to. It doesn't give full coverage which is perfect because then you can rub some Distress Ink in with a sponge. For this one I have used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.

Other products used include some sheet music, Heartwarming Vintage bird image and quote and some old K&Co tags I had leftover in my stash.

If you haven't tried Artist Trading Cards why not give it a go. Pop along to a swap meet or ATC class here at Abundantia's Gold to get you started. Be sure to contact Simone and the girls to book in though as the spaces fill up fast! The only rules of ATCs are they have to be 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", details on the back and popped into a plastic sleeve. They can only be traded with other ATCers and never sold. They are a great way to use up your scraps because they are so small as well as adding some new product in the form of some RW Laser Cuts ATC Miniatures. Simone has heaps of great product in store now that is perfect for ATCs. Go on...you know you want to!! Just be warned they are highly addictive and deceptively time consuming!! Don't say I didn't warn you!! LOL

Tomorrow's little treat will be a beautiful leaf. Stay tuned and stay warm people......
