So after the calm came the storm. I had alot of things to catch up on and have spent the last week and a half sorting everything out. Some of the things at the top of my 'to do' list were some swaps and cards so the following are the photos so far.
This fan is for a swap with one of my ATC groups. We were supplied with a template and instructions and had to produce one fan to send to a partner. This was my attempt - inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci.
Halloween approacheth! Lots of Halloween images and papers have been floating around but inchies and ATCs are the easiest of substrates to cover. I hope the pictures will enlarge for you to read the humorous comments on the inchies.

Update (again): Obviously the photos still won't enlarge so I cropped them all so at least you will be able to see a little more of the detail on the blog page.

Out of three rolls of paper I got a page and a half that was usable. One roll was filled with creatures that had made it their home so I left it in situ - insects need a place to call home too. Another had a small snail living up the inside but I gently removed it and found it a new home in the undergrowth. The rest had disintegrated through the action of insects, birds and possibly rodents chewing it for bedding. I am amazed that so much 'damage' was done in three months of summer when little effect was seen after three months of rain, hail, sleet, snow and sun between February and May.
So, now for my pictures. I made a few items that I felt fitted the DiSco theme - an ATC (even the paperclips and strings were out in the elements with the paper rolls), a couple of inchies, two beads and a 3x1 inch Memory Frame filled with collaged papers.
Update: It seems the picture of my DiSco goodies won't enlarge. I can't figure out why so I will try to photograph them again and re-post a picture later. Apologies for the inconvenience and thanks to everyone for commenting.
