Created By Hand Challenge




I made this ATC for the 'Created By Hand' challenge blog.

I used torn text, gesso, patterned paper napkins, an Artchix image, Zetti stamp, lace and patterned paper. I wrote the quote Dreams are free, so free your dreams, which is by Astrid Alauda.


Have you discovered the joys of patterned paper napkins yet?

If you tear off the bits you want and glue them down the outline doesn't show. You can also layer them.

Ro Bruhn and Sharon Tomlinson use them to great effect in their artwork.

Beautiful ATC Linda. Yes paper napkins are great for many projects. One of my weaknesses is if I see a nice patterned paper napkin I go and buy and take one out of the packet to use it in my oh so many projects to do list lol!

This is fab linda, the sewing looks great, gives it a different touch. Ive used coloured doyleys but not napkins, will have to give that a go. This is stunning though, well done, Jaqi x
