woyww - atc'

An early morning shot of my desk with all the atc's I have made for a swap coming up in May.  I have given up trying to be very original when it is a big swap.  I tend to stay with one design but will use different colours.
A close up of the atc's made by covering a floral stencil in gesso, sprayed with inks and when dry some bling and words.  Easy peasy.

Off to visit the wonderful world of woyww created by Julia.  I had no idea Julia was planning an ATC swap!!!

  3. Your ATC's colours are beautiful. It seems to be ATC week as they are popping up everywhere. I did a blog posting on Monday after I had been asked several times about them. Then they popped up with Julia and now I cant get away from them. Its great. Good luck with yours.
    Best wishes

  10. OOOOH these are delicious...love the way you casually describe how you did them as if WE ALL USE SUCH FAB TECHNIQUES!! Also loving the glimpse of the canvas at back right...still stunning!

  11. Wow, that's a lot of ATC's Sandra. I love the idea of batch making but making them all slightly different and the change of colour is amazing. They look like a patchwork quilt. The recipients will be absolutely thrilled with them I'm sure.

  22. So pretty, love your ATC's love the idea too of keeping it simple and changing the colours. I'm going to join in for the 156 swap but not made one before! Am using my WOYWW snooping as an excuse to munch my way through a bag of mini eggs! Take care Zo xx 77

  23. Your ATC's are lovely. I love the different colors you used, but the same design. Great way to get a lot of them done at once. dani138

  24. Hi Sandra, that's a lot of ATCs and they are beautiful too - love the colours and the shimmer. I'd lose interest if I had to make two the same, never mind twenty-eight. Hope you have a lovely week. Elizabeth x #113

  25. Easy peasy indeed! Yet still very gorgeous and the recipients will be proud to get them. I tend to make my ATCs all the same for simplicity sake. Well, that and I usually am doing them last minute. I have such a love-hate relationship with ATCs.

  26. I love your ATC`s and the description how you made them.
    Thank you for sharing! :)

    Happy WOYWW

  27. Your ATC's are really beautiful. Ì hope you are taking part in the celebrations for WOYWW156

  28. I only do 'original' when I'm just a few ATC's....best just to stick with the one deign and just do a slight variation! Saves soooo much time if you are doing loads! :)

    thanks for sharing your lovely ATC's,

  34. Hi Sandra, The ATCs are looking good! Are they for the annual lunch or for WOYWW? (Or maybe both, come to think of it!)

    ReplyDelete
  35. The roses are from MIL's funeral. Aren't they lovely? And the book I just got is "Art at the Speed of Life" (from UK Book Dep.) and I'm off to look at it any moment now.

  37. oh my - that is an ATC factory - love the bright sassy colours!!! Well done you! Have a creative week and happy WOYWWing... Sarah at 12.

  38. That's exactly the approach I use when tackling a big swap! Your ATCs look great - bet that process was a bit messy though - gesso stencils and sprays - good fun though and great results!

    Thanks for already coming to see my desk this week x

  40. Your ATCs look great. I really like the color combinations that you used. Are you going to participate in the ATC swap for the anniversary of WOYWW?

    Thanks for visiting me already. I'm stretching out my visits probably through the weekend.

  43. I love these ATC's. The colours are gorgeous and I adore the floral design. I haven't really got into ATC's but looking at yours has inspired me to have a go! Thank you so much for sharing. Liz no 194

  44. Absolutely beautiful ATCs, Sandra, even if they are easy-peasy. Seeing them all together like that, grouped according to colour, it seems a shame to split them up! Mounted together they would look great.

    Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. Yes, I can recline and knit - I also recline and zentangle! Only on a very bad day health-wise am I unable to do anything at all!

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  45. Love all those ATC's! My is basically done for Julia's swap. But it does't look to be the right size. I keep measuring it at 3.5 X 2.5 and it just does't seem to the be the shape and size I remember doing before. I guess I am truly losing it.

  49. I'm with Shoshi - seeing them like that, it's a shame to split them up! They'd look fab on a large canvas!

    Thanks for sharing them with us - can't wait to see what you come up with for the WOYWW swap....
