A Little Birdie Flew in

A Little Birdie flew in from Ati in Norway, we arranged a swap from my new ATC's on Flickr on Saturday, and i was pleasantly surprised when it arrived this morning, i wonder how long mine will take to get to Norway.

I took nine of my larger art and arranged them on a canvas, Suggested by Susan, Thanks Sue.

not a lot else to show, we went walking on Dartmoor yesterday afternoon, and found a wood wasp nest and a furry caterpillar that neither of us had ever seen before, Photos on flickr

ATC techniques

the ATC i have just finished are a mix of all sorts, some started off as collages, some just background papers and failed watercolours, i just went for it with Gesso / texture paste, spray colour wash, Silver spray paint, beeswax, embossing powder,Glue gunned shapes, embossed glass , shells, floppy discs, Gilding cream,Stewart gill paints.painted embossed cd's..
no particular rhyme or reason, if i didn,t like what i had done just went for it again with more paint and embossing powder etc etc and built up texture until i was happy.
Have a fun weekend everyone!
Thanks to all who have stopped by

Feeling Better

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for all your lovely comments, I am feeling lots better today, despite the weather!

I Received some beautiful goodies in the post this week, which helped cheer me up, a Bookmark from Anna Nowiki, 2 beautiful brooches and extras from Mary Stanley(Triciastextilechallenge) ATC from Kate North, Pin cushion from Sue Wild(UKembellisherswap)

did not have the energy to do a lot, but did manage to redo some ATCs that i had started but was not happy with, and a few bookmarks, oh and i made some Cards which i had come across in the charity shop they were large aperture cards which had material as well as a pattern for quilting, but i decided to use some of my sample embellisher pieces, which fitted in just right, there were 4 cards but i have only photographed 3 as i have already sent one as a 60th birthday for a friend in Dorset.
