I made an ATC a few weeks ago for a challenge ... there was no guidance, just make an ATC. This is what I came up with.
I had a small piece of coppery background left over from an old project, so I started with that. Then I couched a fancy yarn onto the background in vertical rows, using copper thread. I was surprised at the effect of this technique - and I really like it! I will use it a lot, I think. It has a very interesting feel. I had a leftover inchie, a metal word and a small piece of copper mesh to add the details. I was really happy with how it turned out, and I get to keep it!
I then used the same technique to make this leaf. It is going to be a part of the International Fiber Collaborative (click on The Leaf Project). I need to mail it TODAY because it is due by the 15th. Nothing like the last minute!
I've received some really awesome treasures recently that I want to share with you. Check back soon and hopefully I will have the photos loaded.
