Lonely Sahuaro 12-8-06 I have recently been sucked into the addicting world of ATCs. I've been doing a lot of reading about them and looking at and admiring other people's. Finally, last Friday, I decided that it was time for me to try making one of my own. I started out by cutting a piece of cardstock into 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 sized pieces. Once I had those cut out I was surprised by how small they really are! Looking at pictures on the internet made them look larger than they actually are. I mucked around with a bunch of materials and started several cards, but only finished one. Unfortunately, I liked the idea in my head much better than what my hands turned out. I've decided to keep it, though, because it is my first. It is made with 220 grit sandpaper and a photoshopped photo that I took somewhere in Arizona over a white cardstock base. To glue everything together I used some sort of Tacky Glue craft glue. I have ideas for a few more. Possibly Christmas-themed. I probably won't be able to try them out for a while yet, however. Silly work and RL getting in the way of my crafty ambitions!
