NEW CRAFTY YEAR

A Happy Crafty New Year to everyone.

Here's an ATC I did using the metal foil technique explained in Bernie Berlin's new book, 'ARTIST TRADING CARD WORKSHOP'. This book is a must for all ATC enthusiasts and 2 b ATC enthusiasts, it's pleasing to the eye and the techniques are explained in clear simple English. I also used a vintage image that I coloured in using colours for black and white photographs, the flowers are what my friend uses for doing her scrapbooking.

Talking about scrapbooking , I was trying to find some Italian scrapbooking blogs but I just seemed to find the same old ones over and over again on all the blogs, with the same old LO's and ideas from the USA. Is it that there are far and few between scrappers here in italy ???? !!!!!!!! or that they want a monopoly and have the glory for themselves and not let others into their lucrative club ????!!!!!!!!!

Off to play with some more techniques from Bernie's book.
ciao ciao

Hi Joan,

I'm from the US and keep seeing the same blogs over and over too - so I was happy to stumble upon yours! Love your creations!

I just bought this ATC book you mentioned too - about two weeks ago and it is pure eye-candy to me. Glad to see someone else is enjoying it too!
