Wicked Wednesday

As I'm getting reacquainted with my craft supplies after a family vacation, funny how this ATC made itself...

Haha!  You feel me?  Entering this into Wicked Wednesday's "Head Shots" challenge.  Have to say, with a shooting family, I was picturing something more macabre when I read the challenge, haha!  Funny?  No?  No...


  • ATC is a cut-to-size library card
  • Background painted with Chipped Sapphire Distress Paint through a Heidi Swapp paper stencil
  • The lady is from the scraps leftover from when my friend Meg made me a xmas tree and a snowman and a pumpkin out of old handyman books... she did the cool fold-around DIYs for me to display in the library.  Anyway, since Meg is so cool, she brought me a grocery bag of the scraps to use.  I believe this lady was from a section talking about how to build your own darkroom with discussions about photography.  Doesn't this lady look a little nuts??? (Sorry... she was probably very nice... and I can tell from her face that she had kids...)
  • I added turquoise and purple twine at the last minute to the top... not photographed here
  • The sentiment was typed on the typewriter and edged with Black Soot Distress Ink, as well as the edges of the ATC itself


  1. Such an awesome ATC, love how you collaged the face in and yes, she looks a little bit nuts ! LOL Thanks for joining us at Wicked Wednesday :)

  2. A fab combo of retro and modern and very funny indeed!
    Ps: In my next post you'll see I've used some of the supplies I received from you:)

  3. ove the lady on your ATC
    sweet smile and look vintage
    Mimi you are so great at using leftover
    I am not
    I sometimes keep it and forget it
    better I buy new stamp with my salary and then I will remember (how pain it is to pay 15 Euro for a set stamp of Hero Arts example) and I will remember in which drawer I did put it
    and I will remember where the sentimen I put too
    I want to say two thumbs up for you to used your leftover Mimi
    big hugs

  4. definitely a frozen and slightly psycho-looking expression on said lady's face, but then it was the early 60's (i'm guessing) & YEAH i expect she had some kids who were using the photoshoot as an excuse to "play" with the entire dozen eggs on the kitchen floor! (b/c no one had ever expressly forbidden them to do so!!!) (& yes, that story really happened to a friend of mine some years ago. the kid in question is now a fine upstanding grown up with his own little persons... isn't karma awesome...?!) :) :) :) ps: probably should have said right off how cool this is and how much i love it! ♥♥♥
