Welcome and thank you for stopping by!

I’m here again with another ATC series.  I’m a member at Swap-bot.com and I regularly have the privilege of swapping ATC cards with other crafters and artists.  In June I created this series for a swap with other swap partners.  Making these allows me to sent words of encouragement, wisdom and even humor to others from different parts of the world.  For me it’s a way to spread kindness and hopefully for one moment in time give someone a reason to smile.

For this series I used the “Beautiful Day” stamp set that came in the April’s Simon Says Stamps kit. 

ATC #1 “Strong” – The background for all the ATCs was created using oxide inks and a small background stamps.

ATC #2 “Inspire” – The words are from Tim Holtz Chitchat stickers.  I have a bunch of these always in my supplies, since they are so versatile when crafting and adding sentiments.

ATC #3 “Imagine” –  Small stamps are great to use with ATCs to fill and add texture to the background.

ATC #4 “Strength” – The coloring for all the leaves and butterflies was done with watercolor markers by Zig Clean Brush.

ATC #5 “May your day be full of Sunshine” – For all the ATCs I also added some enamel dots as embellishments to add even more dimension.

Hopefully I have inspired you give an ATC swap a try or at least given you some ideas for your next craft.  The links to the materials I used are at the end of this post.

Always remember to nourish your creative soul!

"Behind every great crafter...Is a huge pile of craft supplies" -JoAnn   Cheeky but true! I love craft supplies as much if not more than trashy paranormal romance novels. I felt it was time to get down to business and actually use all these craft supplies and make pretty things. Would I be successful? Who knows! But now one will be able to accuse me of not giving it all I got. Which is the reason I started this blog, to share my crafting adventures (or most likely mistakes) with the Internet.   Sad but hey I don't have much of a social life and my husband isn't very interested in hearing about crafts! He's much more interested on how the Patriots or Red Sox are doing than listening to me talk about stamps, cardstock and die cutting.   Paper crafting as you will see is my first crafting passion but as any decent crafter would tell you is impossible not to dabble on all other kind of crafting experiments, hence the name wondering mindfield. So look around and hopefully I will inspire you to try something new, make some "creative" mistakes and relax while creating something "pretty." Thank you for visiting and come back soon!
