Giveaways and Crafty Individuals

Hi, am back with 2 more Giveaways which I hope you will like.  Both are made with some Crafty Individuals Supplies.




Both are ATC Gatefolds and the background for the girl above is made from Acrylic Squishings
I would also like to share with you a Christmas Bauble I made from a polystyrene ball.  The stamp used is the Crafty Individual CI-359




If I said making this was easy, I would be telling a big fat fib..................and swore I would never do another one...............but have already nearly completed 2 more................lol

If you would like to make one,  this is the recipe............tore up lots of different bits of paper (including music sheets, which you cannot see) and glued them over the ball with modge podge, topped it with two more coatings of modge podge.  After it was completely dry then painted it in various acrylic paints.  Stamped on tissue and then glued it onto the ball, this was the hard part as circular objects are not easy. Finished it off with Modge Podge Sparkle and then a coat of Modge Podge Gloss.  Pushed wire through the centre and threaded some beads.

Jean has very kindly shown the above make on her Crafty Individuals Blog along with other fabulous makes from other crafters and the DT.

If your would like to win either of the 2 Gatefold ATC's please leave a comment below and I will do the draw on Friday.

Thank you for popping in and take care of yourselves.  Hugs Annette xx

Love your cards and the bauble is fantastic! Hugs, Valerie

Oh my goodness Netty - these gatefolds are just so amazing - the depth and contrast of the colours you manage to create are awesome. I would love to hold one in my hand so that I could see it and study it close up - the it would be on permanent display for lots of inspiration in the future in my studio shed.

The bauble is stupendous too - it looks like reflections of scenes in glass - I can't begin to imagine how you created that effect. And yes, I can believe how hard it must be to work on a 'ball' shape - but you sound as though you have mastered it!

Lobe them.

Both the cards and the bauble are fantastic projects. I love the colours of the cards and can just imagine how small they are having just made two ATC Christmas Cards!

Not sure I have enough nerve to try a bauble, but saw some polystyrene balls in the local shop yesterday, so might just give it a go!

Thank you for (as usual) so much inspiration.

The gatefolds are amazing and am glad I am in time for the draw as I would love to own one of your "original " They are just stunning, super and full of bold colours as only you know how to do ! ( Is that enough crawling ) ! As for the bauble sounds much too tricky but looks fabulous you must have so much patience.
