Knock Some More Off the List...

So, I actually did what I said I was going to do. How often does THAT happen? Not often, at least not in a timely manner. Anyway, as you can see from the pic, I put together a box of all the stuff on my list, plus a couple extra things I found along the way that I forgot I had (like copper tape, photo corners, etc...) It really is inspiring to have it all RIGHT HERE to my right.

I worked on several more ATCs this evening after everyone was in bed. Sometimes in my head I see these gorgeous dark, vintagey ATCs, but when I work on some, it seem I go for the brighter more cartoonish themes & colors. Maybe that is the way my brain is geared? Towards the goofy? lol I don't care. I love how these turned out for the most part. Lady Heloise I'm not sure about yet (on the right.)

Let's see... just for the record, I used the following from my list:

patterned paper, rubons, tiles (round pink thing), copper tape (a new item to my list), dymo tape, snaps, number stamps, ledger paper (see the clouds?), vellum (new item along with transparencies I forgot I had), big sticker letters. I think that's pretty good! Before you know it, I'll have to make a NEW list of unused items! Won't that be fun? lol

The 'Love Is In The Air' card is inspired by Audrey's 'Indulgence'.

You go, girl! WOW! FABULOUS ATC's! That was a great idea to gather everything together and put it in front of you. That's what I need to do to utilize some of this stuff that I forgot I had.

Don't go for the dark, I love your bright atc's to much, would hate it to miss these :-)
I like the way you are using some forgotten items, i should do that to more often.
Remember the 'moon shine' atc's at my blog? The girls dress is colouerd with oil pastels, after I added to much gesso *lol* it's one of my infamous 'saves' Thanks for all your nice words at my blog.
