;; ATC Swap with some of my fab scrap friends ::

I really have the best scrapbooking friends! I feel both rich and blessed to have found so many and so dear friends late in life! Some of my friends have started to trade ATC´s every month and this month, the first, I was in charge of the theme and technique. I chosed Autumn colors and glitter. It will be so fun to have a bunch of cards as memories from all the girls!

This is how my cards turned out. Tons of layers textutes and fun details!

I used several sprays from 13arts and Prima. I also colored Texture Paste with yellow Acrylic Ink to get yellow 3d effect. I used a stamp from Bo BUnny with a Archival Ink pad called onarch Orange.

I used a stencil from Um Wow studio that I really like!

I made the circles with Prima Wire Thread Auburn. I also used some really old tickets from Making Memories that I found in one of my drawers. I used some Color Box Chalks on them.

Last I added tons of glitter, glassbeads and caviar pearls from 13arts.
The flowers are from Petaloo and some unknown brand. The gold hearts is a bargain after some Christmas. I love to buy stuff after Christmas and save for later! Only wish I bought more of them at the time because I´m about to run out of them!

:: Layout with lovely new stuff from Prima ::

Finally a layout! Also extra fun that I love like it! I have really looking forward to work with Primas new collections this time! And lucky me that Pyssloteket have a huge selection of Prima products!

I was inspired by Primas BAP for September.

 I started my layout with adding Prima Heavy Gesso for my background. I used the fabolous paper called Naughty or Nice from Sweet Peppermint collection. You can find all my stuff from Prima at Pyssloteket! When the Gesso was dried I added Prima Color Bloom Spray in Soft Teal, Vintage Coal and Storm Cloud. 

 Behind the photo of my adorable dog Molle I added squares with paper. I used the same paper for my squares as for my frame. I used Rossi Belle - Nostalgic.

 I just loe to add lots of flowers! Here I used Rossi Belle - Melody, Harper,  Sweet Peppermint - Snow Roses, Holiday Greetings and Jingle Bells. 

 Just for more fun I added black sewing thread.

 The Jingle Bells leaves has really long stems so I used them as embellishments as well. I twirled them around a pen.

 Last I added Prima 3d matte gel randomly and sprinkled with Prima Glass Glitter in Pearl and Pitch Black. I also added glass beads from Prima in Crystal and Zink.

:: ATC´s made for a peace event in USA ::

Make love not war are words I remember  from my childhood. Oh well my parents weren´t hippies ;) but I think you could buy t-shirts and stuff with that words. For me it´s a strong statement against war! My three cards will be displayed with other ATC artists at a event called Peace Day Art Show in USA. The 21´st of September it is the International Peace Day. I have donated them for a good cause!

The first one have a stamped heart with crackle accents on. The background is in a collage technique.

This one have hearts and words of love stamped on the background. The heart is from a napkin.

My last one is a bit sparkly. I layered lots of different paint for the background. Then I used the same color scheme on the chipboard heart. I added lots of beads and glitter.

:: ATC´s for a Swedish swap ::

Today I have some ATC´s for a Swedish swap I attended. The challenge was to pick a row from a Bingocards. My words was Butterfly, Monocromatic and some text, stamped or written.
This is waht I came up with!

I used three different Distress Ink pads for my background. I used Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron.

I used a stamp from Paper Artsy for my plants. The Butterfly is actually a clip-art from my computer.
I used Faber Castell Big Brush Pit Pens to make it more fun. I aslo added white dots on the Butterfly.

I chose to follow throw with the dot theme on the cards edges.
I like them!

:: Orange Butterfly ATC´s ::

Here are some more ATC´s I made. I know it´s lots of ATC´s at my blog at the momnet ;) However it will soon be some layouts and cards here :)

I wanted to try out some new techniques and here I used layers of napkins.
It´s really a cool technique that creates depth on the cards.

When the Gel Medium from Prima dried I added Ranger Crackle accents. When that dried I added Distress Ink pad Carved Pumpkin. I also added some orange glass beads, glitter and golden caviar pearls. Last I chose some words from a Prima stickers sheet.

:: Monocromatic ATC´s ::

Sometimes I made things that really don´t photograph well?! Of course it´s my foldt ;) but it´s still really annoying! This ATC´s is really nice with lots of sparkle and cool textures!  I don´t think my photos give them justice. Sorry for that!

I started with Primas Heavy Gesso over a brick stencil from Tim Holtz.

Then I added Liquitex Acrylic Ink Turquoise Deep, Daler Rowney Pearlscent Liquid Acrylic Sun-Up blue and 13 arts mist Turquoise.

Next I added Gel medium, glass beads and glitter from 13 arts.
The cute Butterflies are from Wyshinanka. I painted them with the same Acrylic Ink from Daler Rowney and added some Stickles Turquoise.

:: ATC´s with whimsical girls ::

Here is my second ATC series with different girls and angels. I have one more after this blog post. And of course there will be more! I only meant that are already created ;)
I think it´s fun to make several backgrounds at the time and this is why I made three different grups of girls. These three have kind of the same background and also the same patterned paper for their dresses. They are all a bit whimsical so the series is called Whimsical Girls.

This lovely gal is my favorite of them all! Her wide and flowing dress with lace is so cute! I used a paper doilie for the lace. In her big curly hair I added lots of rub-on birds from Jenni Bowlin.

This little angel has a huge flower in her hair and there are lots of butterflies around her. If you look carefully you also see birds, bees and a bumblebee. Her wings are shiny from Stickles Star Dust.

The last one is a fun and bold girl with a large hat witha flower on. She has long flowing hair and a vintage dress. You can tell that she´s a fun girl to be arond!
For my ATC´s I used a 6x6 paper pad from pinkpaislee called Hello Sunshine. I have also used different acrylic paint. My rub-ons is mostly from Kaisercraft. The words comes from a Tim Holtz stickers book called Chitchat. Let´s stay in touch because on Monday I will show you my ATC series with Strong Girls!

This series is called Golden Angels. I made all backgrounds similar but the angels are all different.
Live Angel is made with a broad lace for the dress and another one over it. She has a wreath made of small gold beads.

Love Angel also has a wreath but this one is made of  glitter and paint. Her dress is made of a very delicate lace and embellished with rub-on flowers.

Hope Angel has layers of different lace for her dress. Ske has a seaquin with a rhinestone in her curly hair. The buttons on her dress are made of rub-ons and rhinestones. Both from Kaisercraft.

On alla the angels I used paper from an old book, caviar beads, black glitter from Youdo, dies from die-namics, decoupage from Americana, rub-ons from Kaisercraft, stamps from Prima, gesso from Prima, Neocolor II crayons, Pit pen big brush from Faber-castell and all my doodling are made with my favorite black pen Pilot Perma Ball medium.
