Well today I am going to share with you an ATC project I did a little bit ago for a challenge over at Noel Mignon. The challenge was to use as many shades as you wanted of one color, but only ONE color!! (I assumed that the picture elements you chose could be whatever colors, so that is what I went with) The color I chose (and this may be cheating :P) was a creamy white. :D So everything on here is from a stark white to a dirty kind of malty cream color. Absolutely had a blast doing this!
I used these gorgeous (free!) images, found at this blog, for the little pops of color on the ATCs. Everything else was from my stash or things around the house that were the color I needed. :D You are probably wondering why there are three empty spaces in my Printer's Tray, and that would be because I ran out of time. :P But I fully intend on finishing the last three. As the other 9 were a ton of fun to do! :D
Here are close ups of all the ATCs I made. I will list all the products used after each one.

Ok wow. Could that have been any longer?! LOL! I had no idea it would take such a long post to get all that typed up :P One thing I wanted to share with you about this project (and of my previous ATC project), is that none of the ATCs are fixed into the Printer's Tray. I use that sticky tack whatever stuff you can get from the Office Supply store to keep them in, but are super easy to remove when you want to change out the display. :D That way I don't have to keep buying more trays! But what I am planning on doing with the ATCs when they come out-as I don't want to just put them in a box or something never to be seen again-instead I am going to make banners out of them and string them up! :D At least I think this will work. :P I haven't tried it yet, but I think it should be pretty easy. I will just adhere the string to the back of the ATC (near the top) and that should be good. Have any of you ever tried this? If so any good pointers would be MUCH appreciated! :D
Well that is all I have for right now. Stay tuned real soon for more scrappy stuff and a baby bump update! :D
Take care everyone!
