Kryshina's Take

Kryshina finally finished her 80's ATC. She made the backgrounds for a set of 3 but wasn't happy with the other two images. I've just finished my Halloween cards for the forum swap tonight so I'll get on to this one sometime this week. Will get up up as soon as I can.

Kryshina used Bazzill Bling Cardstock on the back overlayed with printed Prima Transparency. Next came the Silver Mesh topped with Felt Lace. Printed picture, dymo label maker and safety pins.

ATC Dare #5 - 1980's Fashion

This fortnight Kryshina came up with the idea of 1980's Fashion! Kryshina was going to post this tonight ended up going out so here I am!

We are still working on our examples so hopefully we will get those up over the weekend. In the meantime, think of some of these for ideas!

This should really bring back memories for those my age group and

Mullet haircuts, double-belts, off the shoulder tops, apron dresses, lurex clothing, nappy pants, puff-ball skirts, Madonna look-a-likes, slouch socks, stirrip pants, electric blue mascara, teased hair, diamonte earrings, paisley, shoulder pads, waisted pants, baggies, sweatshirts, ripped tops, new wave, punk, leg warmers, court shoes, fishnet stockings, lace ribbons, t-shirts under suit jackets, doc martens, gothic, converse shoes, studded dog collars, denim jackets, bob hair styles, perms, large earrings, swatch watches, bat-wing sleeves.

And what sort of things would you find around the home or in decorating? Rubix Cube, music tapes, vcr videos, 10 speed bicycles and the list goes on.

Hmmm think Madonna, Duran Duran, Olivia-Newton John, Whitney Housten, Cindy Lauper, Paul Young, Dallas, Dynasty etc etc - so get your thinking caps on girls!

Your ATC needs to be uploaded to the Art Room by Midnight Wed 26th November - Good Luck!

A Random ATC

Hi, over the weekend I decided to try out a new technique. I had brought some texture paste from the art shop that comes with glass beads mixed through. I also added fibres to the background and adhered it with modge podge. After this I painted the background with luminarte paint and added a couple of colours of pearlex powders. I added a charm, cut out picture, pressed flower (which keeps falling apart mind you) and also dimensional magic over the words and wings, also a few beads added to the wings also.

I also had this stuff called Mica which I had in my embellishment box for years, I took a piece and stamped it with Stazon ink to put underneath.

My Samples For The 'Quest for a Cure' Dare

Hey everyone, this is my first post on this blog!
If anyone doesn't already know im Lisa's daughter, at the present im working at Scrapbook Studio until early next year when im going to further my studies in make up artistry. I try to do as much Scrapbooking as i can if i have time lol otherwise ive been getting into doing ATC's, i did 2 of the big swaps that we run in our forum, but now im going to concentrate more on contributing to these dares!!

I decided to make a series of three ATC's for this challenge and have called them the 'Cure All' Fairies, they took me a little while to figure out exactly what i was going to do! which happens with pretty much everything i tend to do!! lol

The backround pieces of paper i used are from the new My Minds Eye - Laundry Line, I loved the papers so much when i saw them, I cant resist anything glittery or pink!! ive also used Silver Skeleton Leaves in the backround under the gorgeous pictures i stole from mum! lol.

Good Luck to everyone joining in on this dare!! dedicated to a great cause!! Have Fun!!! :)
