ATCs-Imagine Believe Wonder

This week saw the launch of the 2nd Look Book over at Sarah Hurley's blog. This is an online magazine full of inspiration and some amazing projects. The design team worked really hard to get this together and I'm so happy to be involved. Please pop over and have a read-it's great!You can find it here.

I made a few things for this issue but my favourite are the set of three ATCs I made using Sarah's new art journaling/mixed media digi kit (those that know me will know what an ATC freak I am!). It's called Journaled365-The Basics and I urge anyone interested in art journaling to check it out. It's just fabulous and irresistible...and addictive! The kit can be used completely digitally but I printed off all the elements I wanted and had fun arranging them to make these ATCs. Couldn't resist a bit of sparkly Mod Podge to finish them off!

 Couldn't resist these heart shaped balloons! 

 I loved this border edging and the stars.

And the kite-just love it!

ATC-Catching a Snowflake

Where's the month gone?Here we are nearly Christmas and time for another challenge over at ATCs with Attitude. This month it's an Anything Goes challenge but who could resist something Christmassy!

For my Design Team ATC I've used a gorgeous image by Limited Runs called Catching a Snowflake.

I coloured the background and the image with Cosmic Shimmer paint except for her hair which is promarkered (is that a word?!). The snowflakes and snow are Enamel Accents and who could resist a bit of bling!
Pop along and join in the challenge.There are some fabulous digital images up for grabs for the winners.

Christmas Gift Box

The latest challenge is up over at Sarah Hurley's Challenge Blog and the theme is...Christmas! Well, what else could it be?
I made a gift box from a template using paper from Sarah's Santa's Workshop Kit then embellished it with a little Santa, some ribbon and a sentiment. I've made a few more since-I think it's a simple way to add a personal touch at Christmas.

Enough room for some tissue paper and a set of ear rings!

Please pop along and join in the challenge.

I'm linking this over at Handmade Monday. It's a great supportive crafting community-come and have a look!
