On my little wonderings this week I stumbled across a little bargain pack of tags and embellishments from Artemio that I thought would work well for a series of ATCs that had the same style/theme but that I could challenge myself to do different bits and bobs with, so I popped it in my shopping basket, with a ridiculous amount of other “must have/need” items and trundled off home (after I had paid).
Anyway, here’s a little peek at the contents of the pack.
Now, I say I trundled home, I did stop at a few other shops, bought a bunch of nick-nacks and totally forgot to get the food shopping that I actually went out for.
Hey-ho, random snack food it is then, lol! :)
Any-hoo, back to the point of this post!
So I cracked open the pack and a few other little bits and bobs and set to work – creating a mess.
Ooh la la indeed little letter beads!
Well, the good news is that I have got a few in the series made however the first one did throw up a snag once I had completed it.
It’s got a nice distressed feel to it …
… but did anyone else spot that Amore is actually Italian for love, whereas the paper tag was set in Paris, home of the French?
Well, this numpty didn’t until the glue had dried, lol!
Ah well, two countries separated by differences in language is no barrier to love between the transient butterfly now is it?
No. That’s my excuse and I am sticking with it.
By the way, there was very little to the construction of this. The background was one of the pre-designed tags that came in the pack from Artemio. I chopped of the tab bit at the top and then mounted it onto some coordinating cardstock.
The butterflies were from a little stash of die-cuts that I had hanging around. These, along with the letter beads were simply stuck on with some PVA glue and that be that.
Hope you like this first one.
The next few ATC365 challenge creations will feature this pack – wonder what will appear next?!
Must dash though, a lesson in geography and native languages awaits! :)
