Trying Some New Things

This morning I finished a girl I was working on and then made an ATC using some of the products from UAQ*.

I absolutely LOVE the PPA (Perfect Paper Adhesive) and will not be buying anymore gel medium for collage. I also used the Duo with both the Jewelz and the Gildenglitz. I am posting these two cards now even though I am not sure they are done. I think I need to add some color or wash to the words on both. Otherwise I think they look too stark.

I had such a lovely time with Tina yesterday. It is a real treat to spend time with someone who is of the "art" persuasion. Now if I could only spend some in person time with other friends around the world. Unfortunately, Australia is much far to go at this time. Maybe we could meet somewhere in between. Ah, to dream!

I am going to get some cleaning up done today and try my hand at some Christmas themed ATCs. It is very wintery here and snow laden trees get me in the mood.

Until next time, don't forget to live in the moment.



  1. Oooo, that PPA sounds wonderful, I will have to keep an eye out and see if we can get it over here. I'm glad you had such a wonderful time with your friend, sigh, we can dream can't we. Have a great day! Hugs

  2. Lovely work, Vicki!

    I've never heard of Perfect Paper Adhesive before. What are the positives for you using it rather than gel medium?

    I generally do a wash of Raw Sienna over the white text pieces if I want to age or tone them down a bit.....depending on the other colours in the piece of course.

    love, light and peace,
