Happy New Year!

Once again, I’ve neglected my blog...but it’s a new year and I hope to post a little something to share with you at least weekly.

I haven’t been creating much in December. Like everyone else, I've been busy with the holidays, but then to top it off, the flu ran through our household beginning with Jose in mid-December, followed by me, and then Kathryn got the flu just before Christmas, but hers wasn’t the regular flu, she got the special H1N1 flu! We got her to the doctor very quickly, and she recovered much quicker than both Jose and I.

Now that we’re all done with the holidays, and the flu, I started some much needed cleaning of my scrapbook area, and came across something to share here --- some ATCs that I made back in October using images from The Art Life that I picked up at a not so local scrapbook store. I just cut some of the images (these old eyes needed closeup glasses for that), added dimension by layering and popping them with popdots, and added Stickles. They are finished off with a quick spritz of Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. The "Dream" ATC (center) has a recycled background which is from a suede-feeling perfume box (click on the image to make it larger, and you can see the product writing on the bottom center) given to me by my friend, Jean. Jean knows I like boxes and containers so she's always giving me fun little doo-dads to recycle and create with.

Capturing the shimmery goodness that Glimmer Mists leave behind is kind of hard to photograph...they are so much better in real life. Here’s my best attempt at a closeup of the "Smile" ATC showing the shimmering Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist on it. Click the image to make it larger for a real closeup view.
Tomorrow...some impromptu mail art.
