ATC Swap!

Hi ya, it's me. Back with some more ATCs, I was asked to come and play, who am I to refuse lol It's so nice to be asked to play. So here are my ATCs for the swap over on The Artist Trading Club and there are some super works to be hold. You know I never really got ATCs before but now I have seen more and more and have made a few I SO GET IT! Any way for this swap you make five one for your self and four to swap the theme is 'Fairy Gardens' why not pop along and have a go at something new! you have until the 31st of March, or jpoin in if you make them already, let me tell you I have had so much fun finding the inner ARTIST!


I think this is my favourate one of them all that's why she's first lol. Any way on to the ATCs I have been using some yummy techniques, I have been using some new colours of Tim's DI and then some Clear EP  with some yummy stamps then more DI then Ironing off the EP and hey presto! beautiful may I say STUNNING backrounds for all the 5x ATCs.


One had to be PINK! I know how girly you all are and love pink! I do to, in the right place (my bed room is shades of pink and chiffon, why not take a quick peek I don't mind.  My Bed room Before and After I decorated in January last yr and I am very proud of it I did my very first altered project on a big big scale lol, chest of draws wardrobes all sorts I never thought to take lots of photos as I wasn't really into blogging then. Any way back to the ATCs


This reminded me of a secret garden waiting to be discovered, I love this, the little fairy is guiding the way to a magical haven! Do follow me and come in to fairy land. Think I will be a way with the fairys if any one else hears me lol More like a straight jacket and the men in white coats lol. Don't be telling on me will you?


And on to some sihouette's have you noticed the butterfly on each one? I am looking for more I wish I could make some feather ones (will have to buy one when I see some and then see if I can come up with something). If you knew me well you would be wondering why I was indeed going on about butterflys at all! Truth is I have a Phobia  of Moths and butterflys come pretty close too so not keen on the Real Life ones if they come close to me eww! At least they move better! and are colourful stop I can't talk about the things i end up thinking of the creepy moth EEEWWWW!!!!


Deep breath, last but by no means least, This one! Did I actually say the theme over on Artist Tradin Club  is actually 'garden fairys' I still think I have a long way to go, re ATCs but I'm feeling confident that I can improve, I hope you swapers like what I have produced. Be gentle it's my first swap ;0) Love you and all your comments. Love Dawn xx
