ATC parade

Just a collection of ATCs that I dug out. Some have been shown here before, some not, but all were languishing in a box all alone. Some are hand painted some are papercuts, some have been rubber stamped and some collaged. They use a variety of materials from paper and ink to fabric and felt.

The Altered Page Etsy store

I have been visiting Seth's The Altered Page blog for some time now and have been part of his ever growing Pulse project too. Now he has opened his own The Altered Page Etsy store, without pomp and ceremony, just quietly. He has some beautiful pieces of art for sale along with the famous Pulse zine, which I can highly recommend. I know his store will go from strength to strength. Why not take a look now then bookmark it for later visits. I know I will.

Chrysti's giveaway

Chrysti is doing something very wonderful on her blog. She is running a project called the 29 Days of Giveaways where she will give away all kinds of things from books to classes. I have been following Chrysti's blog for some time now and have always been awed by her work. She inspired me to try painting my own background papers, to make inchies and I am lucky enough to have taken part in a swap hosted by her (my first ever ATC swap). I even have one of her hand drawn ATCs. Recently she has been seeing good signs of all her hard work paying off with articles in big name art and craft magazines and exhibitions. It is truly well deserved with more to come, I feel. So do take a look at her blog for plenty of inspiration, if nothing else.

Christmas Countdown

If, like me, you use alot of printable ephemera in your art you might be interested in Lisa Vollrath's Christmas Countdown. It starts today and you can find it here.

Tim Holtz has his own countdown of sorts. He is making the Twelve Tags of Christmas - one a day for the next twelve days. Pretty! His twelve tags from last year can also be found on his blog. The links are in his sidebar.
