541  Make time for fun! ~ the atc clock in CHALLENGE 17 ENTRIES by rackycoo on: February 25, 2007 07:52:16 AM
I took a clock (pictured below) that once belonged to my daughter, and altered it to look like this:


It displays 12 Artist Trading Cards (atc's), one for each hour of the day. The center of the clock says "Make time for fun!" Here are a couple of closeups of the atcs themselves:
1-6:


and 7-12:


Obviously, I was influenced by the zetti style of artist Teesha Moore. Some of the images of children I used are unknowns, but the pictures on numbers 1, 4, and 8 are from a family photo, number 7 is my great aunt, and numbers 3 and 5 are my grandmothers as little girls. My grandmother in #5 was an artist. I think she'd be so pleased to see herself with the stripey zetti legs and her little pointed hat!

Here's the "before" picture:   Grin

I got my box from katxena today! It's great, and has some goodies in it that I know I will be using soon. Thanks, katxena! You managed to stuff a lot of things into that little box.  Cheesy

Here's a great hair card from alteredmommy! I love the textured and layered background. I wish it showed up better in this picture. Here's "Practice Day at Hairstyling School":


Thanks, alteredmommy!

My card from alteredmommy came today! It's a sideshow card about sword swallowing. Now that I see how it's done, I may have to take it up as my new hobby.  Cheesy Thanks, alteredmommy, this card looks great with all my other carnival cards!

I love the zetti girl!

Here's my last card for January, and since I used the same photo all month, and the last card goes with last week's card, I just decided to post the whole set together.



Say goodbye to the kids. I'll do something different in February, I promise!

547  Re: Ephemera AND ATC swap round 1-Gallery in The Swap Gallery by rackycoo on: January 24, 2007 10:40:55 AM
I got my return card today from bhean. At first I looked at it and thought, "That's such a nice card, but she didn't use anything I sent." Then, I noticed the Chinese writing. OK, she did use a little bit. After I looked at it more though (it is such a great card!), I realized that she really used lots of what I sent her way: the flowers are punched out of some tickets, the Madonna is from a black and white image that she hand colored, and the golden rays are actually from the star stickers I had included. Wow! Besides making such a beautiful card, bhean was so creative in how she used the ephemera I sent to her. Bravo, bhean! You  really took this idea to the next level!

Here's the card:


Isn't it fantastic? Thanks, bhean!

Here's my hilarious card from MercGirl. Let me tell you: if I could be this happy with a sparkly purple upsweep, I'd be calling my salon even as we speak!



Thanks, MercGirl. It's great bad hair.  Cheesy

Here's some more bad celebrity hair, courtesy of Teeisme!


Tee notes on the back of the card that Donny Dacus was her stepbrother. How would he feel now to be featured in a bad hair atc swap, I wonder.  Cheesy
