What I did with freebie image from Freebie #20....

One of the Yahoo Groups I am a member of[Altered Design] honored me this week by using one of my freebie images as a challenge. We are to use it any way we want - ATC, inchie, 3 by 5 skinny, etc.
I decided I had better take the challenge. Plus, I figured I really should use the images I offer in a more public way. What is the point of giving them if I don't use them in my own art. Many I do, but some I have let fall by the wayside. Any hoo, I made two ATC's . One with silk flowers and copper brads, the other I used Tim Holtz acrylic piece.
I like his acrylic pieces. I use gel medium to adhere the design to them and then the acrylic piece to my project. A couple times I did not like the look of the design on the acrylic piece, or I forgot to do something, I just scraped off the paper with my finger nail, gently, then washed it to get the gel off. Then I reused it.
The third piece I made was one of the miniature composition
books. I used a krylon pen to do the edges of the paper.
Holding the book tightly together I run the krylon pen against the edge of the paper. Then I covered the book with paper and added the images. The girl is on a game chip that I got from one of the dollar stores. The Notes are chipboard letter placed on my copy machine and resized then copied onto the background paper. I then glued that to a piece of cardboard and cut it out. Added a piece of scrap ribbon and Ta Da, a nice little notepad to keep in your purse.
