grapeicepop-i love the pointilism in color, usually i've tried it in black and white and get halfway into a project, before i remember that it looks great, but i hate drawing all those tiny dots!

i recieved this card from grapeicepop, for  my stars and sky theme, i really the abstract streaks of color, layered with the constelations

i posted my shrink film, and foil atc's on the atc board with more details. the shrink film is about 1/3 the origional, but i always check the package because it varies by type. the larger they are, the more trouble i have with them curling, but it's fun to play with. joann's and hobby lobby carry the blank film. the cameo of the prince is a sketch glued onto matboard, with a layer of modge podge dimensional magic on top to create the clear dome.

ATC's are always great for trying new techniques. I did a couple for the april atc swap that i'm really happy with. the first one is inspired by the poet shel silverstein..



I found frosted shrink film at hobby lobby. i usually use the clear and then sand it so it will take colored pencil. for this one, i printed out the poem, and then traced it onto the slick side with a sharpy. the artwork is also based on illustrations in his book. i did it in colored pencil on the rough side of the film. the package said it would shrink to about 1/3. i trimmed and inch or so off of a full sheet, and it came out slightly larger than an atc. i also have trouble with larger pieces curling but this one did okay. it helps to have the oven preheated.

the second one is inspired by the book "the little prince"

i wrapped gold foil around a piece of matboard and embossed the birds and the quote. the cameo, is a sketch glued onto a circle of matboard, with a layer of mod podge Dimensional Adhesive on top.
it's diffrent then regular modpodge, so it forms a clear dome, but it takes awhile to dry. the package said 24 hours, but for this a couple was enought.

class/challenge-headmistress april
house-Gryffindor
project-bathtime atc

after a dousing in garlic, nothing smells sweeter than getting squeaky clean in a bubble bath. the theme for this atc swap was cutouts. the silhouette is from 'a childs year' on the cricut. I was playing with black vinyl to create the sticker. I also was playing with watercolors to create the background, and sprinkling it with salt gave the look of tiny bubbles.











class/challenge-transfiguration
house-Gryffindor
project-poetry atc

for the april atc swap, by partner had shel silverstein as one of her themes. I whipped out my quill, and copied one of his poems onto shrink film, then drew images from his books on the reverse side with colored pencils

class/challenge-potions
house-Gryffindor
project-little prince atc

the theme on this atc was nonpaper, but I also saw that 'the little prince' was one of her favorite books. I hadn't read it, but it's small so I thought I could finish reading it quickly. to be honest, I only got halfway through before I needed to send the atc out. I used double sided tape to attatch the gold foil to matboard, then embossed it with a quote and image of birds from the book. I matted a sketch of the prince onto a smaller piece of matboard and glued that on top. that when pretty quickly. then I decided to use modge podge dimensional magic to embellish the sketch. it creates that shiny dome, but you have to leave it alone to let it dry. the package said 24 hours, but since it wasn't extremely thick, it was dry in a couple hours.

I'm so glad it traveled well! I was concerned that the shrink film would crack in the mail. I had been buying clear film and sanding it for colored pencils, then I found frosted shrink dinks at hobby lobby that already had one side roughened.
