Give Away winner and mixed media ATC #1

Hi Everyone

As promised I am sharing the winner of my 6th blogaversary give away prize and at the same time want to say a huge thank you to all my family, craft friends and facebook friends for their wonderful birthday wishes for my birthday today. I am overwhelmed to have so many lovely people who are such a big part of my life in the craft world.

So the winner is .......

 No 16 - and that is

Rachel from Fisher's Cards and Crafts.

Thank you everyone for commenting and congrats Rachel if you email me your address I will get your goodies in the post next week.

So onto my ATC and after teaching my DecoArt Texture Board workshop I had a number of little demonstration boards left over with the different techniques on so I decided to use them to make little ATCs. Actually they are half an inch bigger on width and length but a lovely little size to play with and of course I didn't want to waste them. They had all been left at different stages so I gathered them together and started collecting little bits I could use with them and put them all in separate envelopes to come back to. As you can see from the photo below I gathered vintage photos from the Tim Holtz photo booth collection as well as his papers and even had a character for them.

So this is the top hat scientist, he loves nothing more to be in his lab cooking up new experiments but when he's out on the town Boy George doesn't stand a look in!

And this is the background, layers of papers and then daubs of DecoArt media paints and spritzes of water.

Just a few embellishments were needed to pull this one together .....

.... with a sentiment found on the internet by Frank Sinatra.

And attitudes are everything aren't they?

Have a great weekend. I am off to Portsmouth today with Ken to do a little retail therapy shopping and we have a table booked at Jamie Oliver's to eat later. Couldn't be better.

Thanks for sharing in my creative journey and for stopping by.
