A little more play.

If you would like to see more of the detail in these ATC's then click on the image; they should enlarge. Thank you so much for the encouragement and comments after I posted the first five in this series. I framed up the images for these last weekend and tinkered with them for the rest of the week. I have used some more images of my father and his brothers - all spares from a memory board I did for Dad's 60th a few years ago. I used some pictures from my collection of strangers too.
Thank you also to those of you who have bought some treasures from my Etsy clean out. I am going to put some bigger items on e-bay soon. For now there are some buttons on Etsy.
I have a button addiction. I admit it. I sorted my buttons into colours a few weeks ago. After I had filled one compartmentalised container 20" x 12" and had half filled the second I realised I had more buttons than I could ever use. I have made up a dozen bags of 50+ and will put them on Etsy today.
Look at this fabulous collection of art and ephemera, it was a gift/trade with Sherry. What an amazing lot of thought has gone into this gift, two beautiful pieces of art, some vintage Sunday School lesson cards, ration vouchers from Sherry's family during the war, old photo's and more. Archer got his own little bag of goodies... I truly treasure each and every piece. Thanks Sherry (my e-mails to you are bouncing...).

Julie - I am again blown away by your art. And all the details you add. Every little touch that makes up the whole. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!

The goodies from Sherry are wonderful. Am so glad you have many lovely artists to swap with. How thoughtful that she added some goodies for Archer (think he is becoming world known).

I think I am developing a button addiction too. Can't get enough of them. Haven't tried dying them before but it does sound like fun.

Sending a hug your way (quite a few of them really).

Hi Julie,
I love the new cards! I'd love to learn how you do you aging on all of the surfaces.
Your photo made my stuff look cool. Can't wait to see what you do with the ephemera.
Hugs,
Sherry
