December ATCs ~ Winter
This card was a tough one to photograph, as it has multiple layers of different mediums, all pretty much the same color.
I started with a piece of natural colored muslin, backed with a piece of batting. I added a bit of cheese cloth to the top of that and sewed on a twig from the back garden. I then added a second piece of muslin to the back and hand sewed it all together.
Now for the fun part! I adhered my wording to it with natural colored bees wax. It had been a long time since I had pulled out my bees wax. I had forgotten how fun it can be. I slopped a layer of wax all over the card and quickly sprinkled very fine crystal glitter on it. I continued adding layers of wax, seed beads (clear and white), and some snow glitter.
And there you have it. I can't wait to see what the other girls came up with.
Now I'm off to create order out of chaos... we took all the Christmas decorations down yesterday, but this place is now an utter wreck.
Have a beautiful Sunday!
