I've been photographing some of my art supplies for my 365 Milwaukee 2010 daily photo project and keep pulling out lovely twinkly bits and bobs that I've collected but can't yet bring myself to use because I just enjoy looking at them. I guess I don't want to get them dirty or use them for some art piece that I'll regret later! Who knows! My brother got me a bag of silver milagros when I visited him in Phoenix in 2007, and I've still only used one or two of them, but I love to take them out and fondle them.
So far my shiny ATCs have used gold embossing powder, as with these spring-themed cards using Ten Two Studios' Spring Beauties, Flower Cigarette Cards and Garden Words:
And I found three ATC blanks that I had made last year when I took Kimberly's Metal Manipulation workshop at Art For All, so I'm making a few embossed ATCs as well.
And now my shiny things are calling me....
