Slacker's Anonymous :)

Yup, that's me, the director of Slacker's Anonymous when it comes to taking pics and blogging about my adventures in paper, and , well...beading too.

My name is Leah, and I am a slacker.  There I have owned up to it, and now I shall get on the road to being better, way, way, way better.  I try, I really do :)

First of all, I found many more pictures of the different swaps I have participated in.  And here they are:

More mail art envelopes, front and back

Who doesn't love Steampunk?

This series of Steampunk ATC's was my very first Steampunk as well as my first set of ATC's and I fell in love with the size and the possibilities :)  I cut ATC's with my Silhouette Portrait and then gessoed them, with like 3 coats.  Next I alcohol inked them in darker rich browns and blues, and then glued on metal pieces, chipboard, drywall tape, and even had some fun with molding paste. And then alcohol inked over them again, adding shaded areas around the 3d pieces.

These are by far my favourite ATC's to date.  These were for a swap on Swap-Bot.

More of my earlier swap pieces from Your Paper Pantry, these are guy-themed tickets.  Of course, I cut them on my Portrait, and watercoloured the backgrounds in all different colour-ways.  Then I cut out shapes and words on my portrait.  Super simple, but lots of fun!

OK folks, that's all for today!  Check back tomorrow for more fun!
