I'm going to start with the ATCs. I have made some for swaps that are already started and some for swaps that will start later this month.
this template for the doll. I colored her hair, face, and arms with colored pencils. I used a Hero Arts background stamp for her torso with my Cat's Eye stamps and then used Tea Dye for the distressing. I also wrapped some green string around her waist. For her tail, I used some Zing glittered green embossing powder, that I got on Saturday with the envelope board and stamps, to make her tail look like shiny like a real tail. On her fins, I glued different colors of tissue paper. Makes it look more flowy.
The last swap piece I have to share is an altered DVD case. It's not completed yet but I do have the cover almost done. Here it is.
I have one more project that I wanted to share. It's not for a swap. It's just something I wanted to make. I found this project on YouTube and had to give it a try. I discovered Saturated Canary stamps a few months ago and bought a few of them but haven't used any until today. Not only does Saturated Canary have these awesome stamps, there is also have a YouTube channel that shows great ways to use their stamps. I'm not sure if its Saturated Canary's own channel but this channel does use exclusively their stamps. That's where I found this project. It's not done yet but it's looking good so far so I'd thought I share it anyway.
I'm using Saturated Canary's Turtle Lurv stamp. She's colored in with colored pencils and then fussy cut her. On the canvas, I Modge Podged some green dotted cardstock and some DCWV paper. Before I put the image on, I painted the background with light green and white paint and then wiped it off so you can still see the patterns on the paper underneath. I then Modge Podged the image and very lightly added some more white paint. I'll work on her some more this week and I'll keep you updated on her progress.
I hope you enjoyed checking out some of the projects I made and am in the process of making. Tomorrow, will be clay day so come back tomorrow to check out what I make. Until then, TTFN Ta ta for now.
