Here is my Moon mingle ATC

and decorated envelope

Hope my partner likes it.

I've also had to do my first journal page swap.........a big step for me, but it's good to get out of the comfort zone.
This page had to have the theme - "A generous Heart". Here is my page and although I'm not totally satisfied with it, will leave it as is and see what the others do for theirs. As this is my first, can only get better.

I have joined a mixed media group which I'm enjoying and it's really pushing me into crafting which is good.
Here is a tag I had to do for a swap called "Elephants can fly"
I love tags and must say I really enjoyed doing this once I started. I crumpled the tag and sponged with ink and sprayed with a little water. After ironing it out to try to flatten it, I used a stencil and some modelling cream. Had no idea what to do for a flying elephant so chose to make it pink and used some butterfly wings I had, added some brown burlap to earth the whole thing again and added an appropriate saying.


Eggshell technique

Looks like I haven't been active for a while......I'm not so good at keeping up-to-date with blogs, journals etc.
Here are some things I've been working on lately.
This is an ATC called "Broken hearts" which was a theme in a group I'm in.
I used the "eggshell technique" which I learned from a friend called Hilde Loch. 
Eierschalen Recycling ATC .

I made a few more from this technique for a Mosaic swap.
