Masculine and Feminine ATC

I have never tried to make ATC's before, but a fun challenge started this month over at Swirlydoo, and I had to try a couple.  ATC's are little trading cards artist make to show what styles they have, they are 3.5 x 2.5 inches, and the sky's the limit on what you can do.

I opted to use the same paper line (Capella) by basic grey, and show how to create a masculine and feminine.  For the feminine card I used a cameo pin that was pulled apart, and layered under it a printed transparency, and pretty colored papers that matched.

For the masculine card I used a picture of my son Brandon, and for this I cut a small section of his face only showing one eye, and half of his nose and mouth.  I then layers the paper uneven below, and used eyelets to hold the chain in place (the same chain from the cameo broach I pulled apart).  I then used a small brad to balance out the chain and the eyelets.

Seeing both of these side by side you can see the similar colors from the paper, but the difference in the feminine and masculine.

Love of My Dreams

I was playing with my phone a while back, and took this picture of my son playing in the light of the lamp next to my bed.  I loved how the light shone on his face.  I like the side profile of the face, and his sweet look.  He is 8 months old in this picture.

I did this for a challenge to to use no patterned paper, so it is all stamped, distressed, or misted.  I also did a new technique on the chipboard letters and the dusty attic piece at the bottom of the page.  I painted the chipboard in a light tan color, then stamped it in black ink with a swirly stamp, then coated everything in angel dust (a chunky see through glitter).

Challenges: - DT anything goes - 6/27x - recycle - 7/1* - 6 of something (flowers) - 7/1x - doodles - 6/30x - letter G (Glitter/glimmer mist) - 7/6x - babies - 6/30x - sketch - 7/31 - cute and cuddly - 6/30x - guy - 6/30x - pens - 7/3x - scallops - 7/3* anything goes - 7/6x - circles - 7/1x circles - 7/1 - any but card - 7/4x

Our Family - DT Reveal

I found this wonderful sketch over at My Creative Scrapbook and used it for my open challenge at Sketches in Thyme.  We have an open sketch challenge until the end of the month.  Just post any sketch and your take on it.

 I made this page for my friend and the birth of their first child.  I love the layered look it has, with the soft baby pastels.  I used puffy paint to make the swirls in the bottom right, and then some fun paper buttons around the page.  I distressed all the edges to soften the look of the page.

Challenges: - DT - anything goes - 6/27x - recycle - 7/1x - vintage - 7/7x - CAS -7/4x - letter G (Green paper) - 7/6x - babies - 6/30x - cute and cuddly - 6/30x - pens - 7/3x - birthday - 6/30x anything goes - 7/6x - circles - 7/1x circles - 7/1x
