Winter Blues and an ATC

Since I last blogged, we here in New England have survived a few more storms - more shoveling, more unsure footing, less road salt available,  miserable commutes ... we are so D-O-N-E with Winter!!
What do you all do to deal with the winter? I gravitate to my studio and create or organize something! I LOVE art so that's some of what I do. This week I finished an ATC for my group at Right at Home Scrapbooking. Our theme this month was "Fairytale". I found a gorgeous image on Pinterest by an artist named Amanda Clark. I resized the image to wallet size and printed the image on white Sticky Back Canvas by Ranger. I frayed the edges and stitched around the image with gold metallic thread - I don't think my sewing machine appreciated the canvas. Here's my ATC ...
 
 
I used a Sakura Gelly Roll Glitter Pen to add some detail to the girl and to some background stars. (If you click on the image you can see the glimmer more). I masked off the wing and stamped inside it with a script stamp and gesso. I tucked some gold tulle and a piece of a doily under the image. I also added some gold rub-ons for some more bling ...

 
You can see the glitter pen more in this angle as well. This was a fun challenge - it took me awhile to come up with this and I loved the challenge! Next month's theme is our "Favorite Character". As of now - I have NO idea what to do!!
Thanks for stopping by and I will be back Wednesday for Project Life Week &. I love how this page came out. Enjoy your Holiday Monday and I'll see you soon!!
