Tomorrow is our trade day for the Albuquerque ATC Group. The suggested theme for December was, "White". How fun is that (ooo, shades of Rachel Ray)? I made 24 of these and no two are alike. They involve recylcing postcards from a previous mailout, white paper with different embellishments done to them (from the scrapbookers section of the store) and things that I had papercast a few years back that was waiting for just the right project to come along. Some of the castings were done from stamps, a candy mold, and some were contrived from laces and sewing notions. I painted them irridescent white. A few of them have tiny crystals glued to them. That being said, though, these were made from things that I already had in stock, in trying to keep with my resolution to use what I have. Now I have Bing Crosby's rendition of "White Christmas" floating around in my head! Aiyee!!
