Don't you just love it when a project works just like you imagined? That was my feeling with this OTP piece.

4 ATC's mounted on a decorated wooden board. Each a little snapshot of highlights of our summer vacation - Glorious!

The side angle:

I used some Shimmerz here - on the back of the transparency and let it dry to look like sea spray. And on the background - Eucalyptus Shimmerz Spritz.

My worktable was covered with all of these little embellishments - it was so fun putting each one together. Em made a little friend - so cute! And the title is a glass slide with alcohol inks with the title letters layered on top, a little gold leafing pen to accent.

I added some glitter into the paint and layers on the wooden background- book pages on the bottom and layers of paint - with some sanding back to reveal.

Experimenting with some wire wrapping and pearls. There are bits of fabric and odds and ends added into each piece.

A fabric tag from Making Memories and a tiny jar filled with sand and more wire wrapping, I stamped on an acrylic tag and tied it down.

I've been crazy busy this week - lots of new stuff coming this month. And loving the hint of fall in the Florida air, it is 55' this morning!! Makes me feel creative. See you soon!
