Altered Art

My addiction is slowly growing to encompass 'Altered Art', thanx to my many talented friends on the DC forum.
There is no limit to the amount of things that can be 'altered' -
let your imagination be the judge.
I chose to start simple and this is my very first slide mailer,
made last Autumn - hence the theme.
It started life as a boring plain grey cardboard mailer,
then I spun my magic and I was thrilled with the results.
Lots of texture on the cover, painted with pearlescent paints
and a touch of embossing powder,
whilst the inside has heat embossed leaves, shrink plastic,
gold leaf effect, mica beads and simple 'peel off' lettering.
The quote reads:
'Autumn is a second spring, when every leaf's a flower'.

My Addiction!

Well, this is my addiction - Artist Trading Cards (ATCs). I have been making them for just over a year now. They are little works of art that measure 8.9mm x 6.4mm. How you decorate them is up to you! There are no rules (only the size, of course). This is one of my favourites (because it's purple!) - anyone who knows me will understand! The background is a printed paper and it is embellished with chipboard letters (coloured with inks) and die cut flowers. A few brads and gems - and away we go! Simple really.
