"Faerie Post" is here!

Hello everyone! I am back after a long bout of not feeling my best. We are expecting in June and this first trimester really took everything I had including creative energy. But I am starting to feel better and so here start the crafts once again.

This is an ATC to a friend of mine in my swap-bot group Keepers of Avalon. She won the "Winner-take-all" (WTA) this October and here is what I made for her. It is backed on illustration board. The background is Distress Ink in "Dusty Concord" then sprayed with Glimmer Mist in "Pearl." Since Distress Ink is a water soluble ink, the mist reacted with it to make a weathered water stained look. I then just used various pieces from my stash after that like tissue tape, ribbon, twine, charms, etc. Then I sealed it all with Distress crackle paint in "Rock Candy," and used my Heat-It tool to dry.

Thank you for stopping by and reading this post, hope to be back soon with other little treasures and crafty bits! Until then, happy crafting!

  2. Oh my! Thank you so much for the compliment! I did get your letter awhile back and I have meant to write back to you. Since I found out I was pregnant, crafts or anything extra have not been possible, I am just now starting to make things again and feel better. It was a really rough first trimester, so I do apologise. I will add your reply to my list of things to complete asap!

    Hope you are well too! I miss talking with you!
