A Full Saturday Workout!

ATC9ersa

You thought I meant a fitness workout did n't you? You did n't? You must know me too well!

When I got up this morning I fancied just playing so for the first time in ages I joined in with the Saturday Workout.ATC9ers

This is a challenge site with a bit of a difference ... it is not about a theme ... usually it's a technique or something similar. This week it's all about ATC 9'ers! If you don't know what that is ... well neither did I! An ATC 9'er is a group of 9 ATCs that make a complete picture together but also work individually.

So I got out my distress inks and my Timmy stamps and set to work ... You know Tim ... the man that can fly without the use of an airplane :0)

When I first got into ATCs it was all about sharing techniques with fellow crafters ... so I went all out to layer up as many techniques as possible. If you want more detail ... just click here!

That's it then folks ... I am off to make something else now ... or I could tidy up the complete mess I have made ... Nah! Making more mess is much more fun!

Have a good one!

you are clever Linda. I've never attempted one of these as I think it looks way too complicated. you've had an excellent result - it looks really good!

Like some commenters before me I have never heard of ATC 9ers before, but WOW what wonderful art you've made!
Are you going to keep all nine or swap them?

Wonderful colours and images you used. Fab. Anesha :-)

craftimamma said...

Nope, I hadn't heard of 9ers either but I shan't forget what they are now I've seen your fab piece of art.

This is brilliant and I'm sure I could never get 9 ATCs to look good on their own and together and look as though they belong.

Fabulous 9'ner. Love the images and colors is fab.

Julia Dunnit said...

It looks FAB. Had to enlarge it to be sure it did work as 9 pieces..yup! And btw...he at least needs goggles.

Cath Wilson said...

Well done, you! I love those colours - my favourites - and it all works so well together. I'm determined to do this challenge but keep being waylaid... I have my background ready, now, though.
