[I might be hearing a little too much about Star Wars lately…]
Finals are done. The semester is over. I just have a few hundred essays to grade (slight exaggeration), a few Christmas parties and a couple of concerts to attend, and then I can say “Good riddance to Fall 2013!” I am awake at 2:30 a.m., so what better way to deal with my anxiety-induced insomnia than writing an overdue blog post.
Way back in late September, just before work and other non-family-related obligations took over my life, I joined a “Sheet Music with a Butterfly” ATC swap. My lovely partner sent a sweet collage ATC made with various paper elements.
I really like the color scheme and how the butterfly sticker complements the butterflies in the postage.
Here’s what I sent my partner (I just realized Sherri and I used similar color scheme):
It was very “sparkly.” How did I make it? Really simple materials: a leftover strip of glitter card stock, sheet music .jpg file, part of of photo I shot of Hani Shihada’s amazing sidewalk art and a coating of sparkle mod podge. I used this butterfly many times before–in ATCs, on envelopes and cards. In fact, you can see another ATC and envelope art featuring this same butterfly in an earlier post.
Just a few more days till I have time to craft and create again! Woohoo!
