Secret Door ATC's: Part 2




Here are the remaining two ATC's I was sent in response to the Artella Secret Door ATC Swap. Aren't they gorgeous? While I LOVED them all, my favorite is the top photo. The front of the card looks like a glass door. I don't know what the paper is that the artist used; it's like cellophane. Then, when you open it you have that beautiful image behind it. Very creative! The bottom card has moss adhered to the inside with a silk flower. Very cool! All of the artists really showed their creativity with this swap. I'm getting a nice little collection of ATC's now, thanks to these ongoing swaps. How fun!

Worked a little on my zine yesterday, but didn't make as much progress as I liked. The weather was beautiful and I needed to run some errands. That stretched out into a few hours out and about yesterday afternoon. So, today I must stick to the task and get the painting of the covers to all ten zines finished today.

I found some beautiful fabric that will add nicely to some part of the zine. It would make a nice little art quilt, too. I made sure to get enough to do both! :) Enough for today. I hope to have more to show you soon.

Goodness but you are one creative soul. Do you subscribe to any of the Stampington series of magazines? If yes, which do you recommend?

Hi Joanne! I buy Somerset Studio, Somerset Memories (formerly Legacy), Somerset Gallery and Workshop mags. I recently bought Somerset Sew (great!) I've been thinking about buying the Altered Coutoure. I don't subscribe because my mail carrier bends my mags! GREAT to hear from you!! :)
