Believe in YOUR SELF!!!

Sometimes LIFE has a way
of sneaking up behind you...
and slappin' you on the back
of the head!!

Seems like I've had a few toooo many
head slaps lately....
I NEEDED to make something
to encourage myself.... BELIEVE IN YOUR SELF!!!

A Chunky ATC!

I colored the piece of wood...brown.
Then, I cut  a 5"strip of 7Gypsies ~  Mabango paper
 from the Serengeti Collection.
Followed by distrezzing the edges of the Mabango paper
and adhering it to the Chunky ATC.

I trimmed a piece of Canvas Corp ~ Leather paper
and adhered it to the top of the Chunky ATC.

I picked another piece of paper from 
7Gypsies ~ Serengiti Collection ~ Wanyama.
I tore off a piece big enough to cover
the front of the Chunky ATC.
TIP: spritz the paper, front and back,
and help crumple the paper easier.

I created a spiral flower using 
Canvas Corp ~ Burlap Sheet ~ Wheat.
I colored the outside edges of the spiral, 
dried it and then rolled it into a flower.

Using the Flowering Branch die from Die~Namites Dies,
I diecut a piece of Canvas Corp ~ Kraft Cardstock,
colored it and crumpled it while I was drying it.
I thought the 7Gypsies Antique Brass Corner
just set the Chunky ATC off!!

Whether it's the best of times
 or the worst of times, 
it's the only time we've got.  ~Art Buchwald

Hi Lynne

I like your work. There is a question on the challenge blog for die-namite that I was hoping you could answer. Thanks
