More more ATCs

Hello! All, been missing for many weeks as I have been busy spending time with families and relaxing without doing any scrapping except making ATCs. I am just happy as my mojo for ATCs are just pouring like water immediately after I came back from Liza's class on altered box for ATCs over at Papier last month.

I am happy that my swap group for ATCs has been growing not big but just ok and enough for us to gather once in a while catching up over lunch, chatting while swapping ATCs. It is so fun, as we do not see each other every week but at least once in a month. To all my swap buddies, you know who you are and your ATCs never fails to put a big smile to my face every time I look at them.  I learned a lot of techniques along the way and every single ATCs is unique in its own way and it is always a "limited edition" one of a kind...hence grab fast!

On top of that, I have not scrapped a layouts regularly nowadays as my mojo for 12 x 12 are just gone for an early Christmas I guess. Managed to do about 2 layouts with a very minimal mojo in my head!  but that have to wait until I have the time to share.  Here I am sharing with you some of my ATCs so far...

It has a few groups...the divas group, the punchanella group, the birdies group, the secret/vintage diaries group, the body forms group, the seam bindings group, the colored metal group and the misc. group.  I love all of the ATCs...

the dress form
*these one are very easy to do just a stamping and I sew a little piece of tulle to form a black netting dress added some white beads and I sew the edges of the ATCs with sewing machine using pieces of left over materials.  Only one of the ATCs are different without a dress but a vintage button pasted on it.

the punchinella
*these I used texture paste and punchinella as a stencil and I coloured the ATCs using Inka Gold, Donna Downey and some rub and buff colours.

the seam binding
*I did these yesterday night while watching "Jack and the Neverland Pirate" with my girl, basically just a pieces of scrap papers, buttons, laces, flowers and seam bindings...look like a tag but a small version tags.

the divas
*those vintage photo I got it from the "darkroom door" and I cutted them nicely using my vintage photo cutter and added some laces, colours, old book papers, Inka Gold colours and I sew them using my sewing machine and you can see my black zig zag thread and I added title on every Diva...example Miss World, Miss Vain, Miss Sissy, Miss Photogenic and so on...

the coloured foils 
*these are after Liza's inspiration and those are embossed using Ten Seconds Studio's dies. Easy peasy....

the misc
*these are a mixture of everything and very easy to do but look great in real life as most of it has textures...

the birdie
*these birds are done using a flower petals and the bird is from the new Sizzix dies and some stamping on the backgground and added some Donna Downey colours to the feathers.

*the secret/vintage diaries and copper foil
*I had so much fun doing these ATCs as it is totally vintage and I basically used the copper foil and hammered all the alphabets one by one to form a word or sentiments. As for the bird feathers, I used Melissa Frances flakes and it is kind of white/transparent in you can't really see the feathers.

Ok thats all for now, got to go and the weekend is almost here and thanks for all your comments on my previous post, happy crafting and see you in my next post.  Toodles!

Scrappingville: Yuzz November 2011 Class

Hi! I am late in posting this and my apologies to Sharon for the lateness (my bad) for this month November 2011, we was given an extremely va va voom kit again by Sharon of Scrappingville.

I received a 12 x 12 canvas piece and also I was given a nice stand, loads of embellishments, 6 pieces of chip boards, patterned papers, Maya Road canvas album. With all of that, I did a layout on the canvas and also a  calendar.

Here the sneak peek...

playing ball

The weather here is raining every day hence, my mojo is so low and lazy to do anything crafty. Except a few ATCs and I do spent my quality time with the family.  My girl is going to be 3 soon in the next couple of months and she is so talkative nowadays.  Here a layout of her photos playing a ball in the evening at the local park.  Well, when it rains the grass are wet so the field and she run and run until all her clothes are wet...giggling, laughing, yelling and everything, she has the energy of 24/7.

A very simple layout I did 2 weeks ago but haven't had the time to share, it was for some challenge which as usual I totally forget to submit and for which blog. I have more projects to share, lets see whether I will be blogging again tomorrow.

Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting.
