A step back in time!

As this a a crafting journey I thought I would show some of my earlier work. In my youth - well last year actually, I made quite a few fat pages and some were made as Fat page and matching ATC sets. Here are a few of my favourites.

Fat page with ATC 6

I was particularly pleased with this Warholesque effect. I borrowed the stamp from my friend Sheila so I cannot record the details. I stamped and embossed it on coloured card using black embossing powder and the ever useful Versamarks ink pad. Black embossing powder is quite tricky to work with - if anyone knows why, please tell!

Fat page with ATC 3

This next set was made using the Petals - plate 6 from Paperartsy. I am a huge fan of their designs. I also find quilling very relaxing so I quilled the daisies myself and the additional flowers are from my very small craft stash :0))

I should also mention that the background paper was from the DCWV olde world range.
