I decided to organise my craft-room yet again.... which in effect means moving stuff around and not actually getting any more ordered or tidy! I live in a perpetual state of unorganization... well as far as my craft-room is concerned.......... well if I am truthful as most of my life is concerned!!
I have never yet managed to have a major sort out without stopping to make something when I come across something that inspires me a bit..... I moved some bamboo tiles from one tin to another and thought of an idea for an ATC for the ABSA swap I am hosting on DoCrafts. (Alternative Base/Something Altered)... speaks for itself really, the base to the ATC must not be card/paper and it must have something altered on it.... well here is the first one.. The Base is made from metal.... which actually is an old tomato puree tube, so I guess that is altered as well (or is that recycling??) and the bamboo tile is altered, hope whoever gets it likes it.. must get on with the other one!
On the way to bed last night I went into my CR to switch the lights off and saw this awesome ATC I received from my mate Fuchsia (aka The Button Queen... think she may have a proper name as well!!) It was sent as a RAK for hosting the above swap.... well I was told I could choose one of the three she sent.... they are all brilliant but I had to pick this one, and Fuchsia knew I would!... anyway back to the plot! It was crying out to be mounted onto a small canvas, so at some unearthly hour last night, out came the gesso and the red/gold/black paint. I finished it off with the wire and beads (which echos the wire and beads on the ATC) at some unearthly hour this morning. I really should sleep!
Now off to tidy up the mess I made after I tidied up... suppose I had better feed the family as well!
