Thank you! I think Breathe Deeply is my favorite one, although it may be because it was my first.

I've been looking at the many pages of this thread form from the beginning of the month but this is my first time posting to this thread so I just wanted to say that I've thoroughly enjoyed viewing each and every piece posted. It would be too time consuming to go back and post individual comments as I would like to so let me just say I've found each card beautiful for different reasons. I appreciate people being willing to share their art with others!

Hi. I've been making ATCs since January. I learned about them from reading this board so I thought I'd finally work up the nerve to show some of what I've made. Please excuse the slight glare on some of the photos. I was lazy and took the pics with the plastic sleeves still on the cards. Also please excuse and the unattractive background, I don't have a scanner.

Group pic (I've made more than this this is just a sampling):



Close up of the first ATC I ever made "Breathe Deeply" using a photo I took and altered on the computer, a rubber stamp, a doodad (can't remember what those round things are called), precut backing, and Asian inspired card stock paper:



Close up of "Once Upon A Time" made from card stock, mulberry bark, a packing tape transfer and a doodad:




Close up of "Beautiful Woman" made from Asian inspired card stock, mulberry bark, and a few free stock images I found on-line and altered and of course the ever so popular doodad:



Close up of "What a Girl Wants" made on precut backing with collage technique:



And last one for now close up of "Art is Sexy" made with card stock, a packing tape transfer of paintbrushes, a black stamp pad and a free image I found on-line:



Thanks for letting me share.

p.s. I've really enjoyed looking at the other pics in this thread! Wonderful pieces to look at! You all gave me the courage to post my pics as well!

I third (fourth?) the ATC Workshop book. Wonderful photos of beautiful cards and simple instructions on different techniques. You really can't go wrong with it.

You could use large or coarse seasalt (may or may not be what she used but it would yield similar results)  http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=468&ProductName=Crafters+Choice%e2%84%a2+European+Spa+Salts+-+Coarse+Grain or she may use something like this: http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/StoreCategory.aspx?CategoryID=911&CategoryName=Crystal+Potpourri. Or if you didn't mind smaller crystals you can use these: http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/StoreCategory.aspx?CategoryID=648&CategoryName=Sachet+Beads

Edited to add I just went back and actually read over her descriptions more carefully. My bet is on large or coarse seasalt because the other things would not be able to be used in the bathtub and I don't believe the sachet beads would go over well on burners as they would melt!

That's true. I like to adjust my formulas so they "even out" but sometimes that's not always practical. And yes, I certainly wouldn't want to try to measure out 16.35 oz! lol. Sometimes I get so stuck in doing things my way I forget there are alternative ways. lol.

Do you know what ingredients you can use on your lips or know those you cannot? If you post a list of what you can or cannot use it would help. Lip balms are very simple to make. If you look here: http://www.thesage.com/recipes/recipes.php3?.State=Display&id=19 you will find one guide for formulating your own lip balm.

If you are going by ounces for your weight you can use fluid oz for your water. 1 fl oz of water is equal to 1 oz of water by weight. Unless you have an extremely inaccurate measuring cup you'll be fine.  Assuming your scale is accurate you can test it by placing your empty measuring cup on your scale and weighing it in oz. Write the number down that you get. Then fill it with water to say, the 4 oz mark and weigh it again. Subtract your first number from your second number to find out the weight of your water it should be equal to the volume of water you put in the cup. If it concerns you than by all means weigh it out. But it is not absolutely necessary when using ounces. I've been making soap and bath and body products for close to five years and have logged many, many, many hours of research (just so you all don't assume I'm a newbie that doesn't know any better because I'm new to your forums) and I've never had a problem doing it this way. I guess it just depends on who you ask.  Wink If you'll google it you will find conflicting information. So as I said do what you're comfortable with.
