Project 365 - January 31

Good morning,

Here is the day's ATC (not for trade).

It's a nice statement about optimism and attitude, wouldn't you agree?

Project 365 - January 29

Good morning,

Here is today's ATC. (not for trade)

Remember a while back I told about this show I like, Being Erica? Well this quote was taken there. I identified the author as the character in the show, but I may have missed the reference...

Background is a napkin (I think - received in a swap) and I simply covered and inked random puzzle pieces, finishing with a few dew drops - I love those dew drops!

Hope you like it!

Project 365 - January 28

Good morning,

Here is my ATC for today. (Not for trade)

The background is a patterned cardstock I receved in a swap and the saying is a sticky note I got in a swap as well. I had kept it because I found it nice and now, I got my chance to use it! I just collaged a tag with text and inked it to finish.

Project 365 - January 26

Good morning,

Here is my participation for today.


Background is masking tape inked in light colors. I also recycled a piece of waxed paper I used to alcohol ink some Peel Off's stickers, as I thought the mask effect was too pretty to throw away. Finally, I added a couple of those Peel Off's. Hope you like it.

Project 365 - January 18

Good evening everyone,

To start off, I would like to thank those of you who take the time to comment. It is much appreciated! I guess I have given myself a goal to make ATC's with sayings and quotes for this project, so I keep trying to find good ones and I like to know what you all think! BTW, if you have any good ones, I would be delighted to receive them... After all, there are 365 days to cover!

Here is today's card. Once again, it's a quote I got on the show Being Erica (my husband calls me TV addict!)

Project 365 - January 13

Good evening everyone,

Here is today's card.


I got the quote from the show "Being Erica", which I recently discovered. It's about this young woman who gets a chance to relive certain events in her life as a means to make different choices and ultimately change her current life, through a peculiar kind of "therapy" involving time travel. I really enjoy it. If you want to take a look, you can watch full episodes here.

Project 365 - Day 7

Good day!

My seventh installment. I hope you'll like it!



I don't know about you, but I'm sure trying to put as much life as possible in my years!

Background is semi-glossy cardstock "swished" in Glimmer Mists with a stamped decorative corners. Postage bits are stickers and the cameo is a recycled button rescued from Grandma's tin boxes. I also added a bit of drywall mesh, which is one of my favorite supplies. Very versatile and I read somewhere that it's even acid-free!

Project 365 - Day 6

Good afternoon,

Here is today's card. I really need to learn how to draw... I really wanted to use this saying but I couldn't come up with anything more elaborate as a design... At least it's witty!

Project 365 - Day 3

Good afternoon!

Here is today's installment:


The background is Distress Inks on white cardstock. I drew a head on tissue paper and glued it to the background, thus ensuring we can still see the background color. I then printed a brain clipart I found on the web and adhered it with foam dots for dimension. A quote and some doodling and there you go!

mardi 5 janvier 2010

Project 365 - Day 2

Here is my second ATC. Hope you like it!

lundi 4 janvier 2010

My first participation to Project 365

I'm back!

Here is my first ATC for this awesome project.

Background is alcohol inks on glossy paper. I recycled the flowers out of a small catalogue I got in the mail and the butterflies are from collage sheets. I then simply inked the edges and traced the outlines with marker and added a quote. Maybe I'll continue with the quotes, I sure have a big enough collection to keep me going for a while!

See you tomorrow ;)


Welcome to My Artsy World

Hey everyone,

I am just inaugurating this new year with a new blog, to share my scrapbooking and ATC's with you. I have a main blog in French here, if you care to take a look. If there is anything over there you would like me to elaborate on in English on this blog, by all means, please leave me a comment to let me know. It's always a pleasure to share my artsy experiments and to get feedback.

Earlier today, I came across an intresting project: 365 ATC's for 2010. Even though I am already hosting a 52 week long project for this year, I figured it would be fun to try and participate in that one as well. So I will be jumping in and coming back later with my first participation. Hope you join in too and enjoy.
