ATC Folder

I've made an atc folder to send some atc's to a special person. Because she received it, i can show it now.
Coloured the paper with Distress Inks vintage photo, mustard seed and spiced marmelade

Stamped with Staz On

On the outside a finish of  Ranger Matt Medium

Adhered envelopes inside

Envelopes also stamped with DI walnut

The idea for this kind of wallet comes from Zuzu and i'll show this to a new challenge on Simon Says Stamp And Show Anything but a Card.  

Happy wednesday dear readers and thank you sooooooo much for your enthusiastic comments on my last post. I'm still do the happy dance (:o)..and i catched my first Top 3 entry at Simon Says Stamp And Show ..wahoooo (:o)

Hot Air Balloon....or...

...aviation at that time....
Well, this project  is  was on my To-Do List since a year, i think. As i was playing with pleister, a view days ago... i thought...why not trying to cover a balloon with pleister and ...see what happens...

After one day, the pleister was still wet. I took the balloon out and  left the pleister - balloon for 2 hours in a light warm oven, till it was dry. Then i started with painting and made a kind of basket from coasters by cutting them to size. I used my hot - glue gun and matt accents to glue everything together. 
I've painted the basket with acrylic paints in layers. Sewed the little bags from burlap. The ropes are secured to idea - ology memo pins, which i shortened.
I stamped the flying man on cardstock with DI Black Soot and heat embossed the image. I coloured him in with DI and H2O's. Then i adhered him to one rope.


 The mesh is a leftover from oranges i bought. It was red and i coloured it in with turqoise acrylic paint.
 Simon Says Stamp and Show a Red Letter Day. Now, this fits perfectly, don't you think? (:o) And i show this on the Creavil Challenge Blog Theme of Challenge No. 23 is Gears


Happy creative weekend!!
