On my desk this Wednesday, you can see that I have been coating some card stock and old invitations with wall putty. I am planning to have a 200th follower giveaway (optimistic! LOL) and I'm going to make something bigger than an ATC to give away so that is what the card stock is for. Any suggestions about the theme? Mother and child? Tree? Madonna? The winner's portrait? Oops, no, I can't do that! Anyway, I will start on it when I get back from my two week trip out of the country.
And since I will be taking an airplane, I'm preparing what to bring in case I feel like making some artist trading cards (ATCs) while waiting in the airport or while on the plane. It's a great way to while away the time (like when I traveled to Turkey). Many of my artist trading cards are made using my extra wedding invitations (the printer printed too many so I am putting them to good use). Julia, who organizes this Wednesday peek of 100+ desks once commented about my putting backing on my ATCs. Well, I paste the backing to cover the invitation so that I have the space to write the info an ATC should have at the back.
Propped up at the back are my latest ATCs (I will post close ups next time). In the picture below, you can see them drying on my sewing machine (taken last weekend) because I couldn't even use the push back method to make some space for them.
I finished the blouse I was altering (tutorial here) and guess what, my sister Patsy said she is going to try it out. LOL, I write a tutorial and my sister, who lives right beside me, will try it out (I could have given her one on one lessons!)
And in case you haven't, why not back up your blog. I'm not sure if I will be able to post next Wednesday as I will be away. Who knows! Til next time, happy WOYWW!
