Awww, that is really cool, CLM!

This is one of the huge projects I have been working on all year! Click on "projects" to read more about it!

I finally put to use one of the "Funkins" I have picked up at thrift stores! And I put to use napkins I bought over a decade ago to decoupage with!

I painted the stem first with red oxide, then with brass paint.

I don't think I've ever decoupaged with napkins before, so I learned some things that might help me like future results more. Still, it's a colorful addition to the pumpkins decorating the house for Thanksgiving and for now I'm going to roll with it.

I got two from anna.wahnsinn in yesterday's mail, in a cute space-picture envelope:

A rainbow ammonite for me, and a sauropod mother & child for my daughter (cute!)

She says she's not good at backgrounds yet, but I disagree:

A post of ATCs using masterboard elements, I love how these turned out.

Do you like this idea but wonder what they heck you'd ever do with a completed masterboard? You are not alone! They seem confusing at first but I think that once you get started you'll find that even the smallest snippets are valuable little crafting supplies that you can find a delightful use for. I am enchanted with how my projects turn out every single time I include some masterboards. They are seriously fun bits for paper crafting.

This video shows gelli printing on tissue paper that is then torn into strips and pasted together onto a new board. I used deli paper which is a bit sturdier than tissue.

My prints, none of which are all that gorgeous on their own:

Torn into strips and glued to a new sheet of paper with gel medium.

Layered with stamps and stencils. At this stage I always think things look like a hot mess but I've learned to trust the process. You aren't aiming for a finished project here, only an interesting back ground.

Gold paint flecks sprinkled liberally over the whole sheet.

Cut up into 6X6 inch master boards, the trimmed off parts were the perfect ATC size.

I am so excited about all the projects I keep imagining with these wonderful colour collages I've received. You all made such lovely boards, I am still amazed at the unique take everybody manages to have. It's awesome!

First up, from Anna:

I like how the sheet music peeks through.

Love these sparkly stars!

Of course this rainbow profusion would be my fave of the bunch Cheesy!

And from Smmarrt:

Alcohol inks, such a cool result.

Yummy strawberry glazed donuts, mmm!

This one is so neat looking.

Classic colour and pattern layering.

This is my fave. Are the little black dots a stamp or a stencil? And the grid? I would love to know how you got this effect, it is just great.

I made a post of ATCs using masterboard elements. I really love how they turn out!

I received two lovely cards yesterday!  Smiley 

The first is from craftylittlemonkey, and she went with my mushroom theme.  It's wonderful, I love it!  She also sent a generous amount of paper goodies along with the card!  Thank you!  Cheesy

And this one is from pioneer9, for my bird theme.  It's looks a little oddly shaped in the photo, but it's perfect in real life.  I had to keep trying different angles to get both the super shiny gold and the beautiful dark bird to show well in the photo.  Smiley  It's wonderful and I love it too!  Thank you!  Cheesy

After the Art Conference, my friend and I took SusieQ to the Columbus Museum of Art where we saw a cool display of yarn work. LBABB sends me a lot of funny yarn work, so I will let her wonder what all we saw and save it (except this sneak peek) for the scrapbook.
