Wednesday's Art

Its the day before Thanksgiving and I am off work and LOVING it! Just taking it easy today and tomorrow and doing some Artsy stuff. I will be decorating for Christmas on the week-end.
I made some ATCs this past week-end. Here are 2 of the ones I made.

After I collaged them I used Ultra Thick Embossing Powder on them and it makes them look like they have a thick coat of clear enamel on top. You do this by using versamark ink on top of the card. Then sprinkle Ultra thick on top, shake off, and then melt with your heat gun. I do this twice, and then before the second coat gets hard, I stamp into the ultra thick with a inked stamp. The words on the cards are what are stamped. They look really cool and the scan doesn't do them justice. I went around the edges with my goldleaf pen.
I have also got my soldering gun back out and made 3 christmas pendants last week and gave them to Mom, Rosemary, and Charlotte when they came over. Last night I made 3 more pendants. I really enjoy solding. I will take pics of the pendants today.
I sure am looking forward to a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow with my family.
Hope every one has a great wednesday.

You always leave me in awe with your gorgeous!! I wish I knew how to do all those techniques...I guess I need to move near you so that you can show me! hehe

I put up most of my Christmas decorations up today, will finish tomorrow. The only thing left to do will be the tree...since I'm getting a real tree this year, I can't put it up as early as I usually put up the artificial one.

Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Thanksgiving!! xoxo
