Cross Stitch ATC's 1 & 8

In the continuation of the Cross Stitch ATC Number Series, here is #1 and #8. I got a better idea this round and am loving how they turned out. It was so hard to part from these. However, I will be receiving ones from my partner soon and can't wait to see them.

They were stitched on light blue aida cloth using DMC floss #825, #B5200, #725. Glued to white cardstock and cardboard, with some embellishments added.

Black and Orange Zentangle Inchies

Here is a set of Black and Orange Inchies that I made for my swap partner. It consists of Zentangles from the book "One Zentangle a Day by Backah Krahula". Drawing Zentangles in this small art form is really fun and relaxing.

ATC with an Inchie

I haven't done one of these in a while, so I think it was due time to make one again... An ATC with an Inchie. This time it was a Zen Doodle one. The center is the Inchie that was glued onto an ATC size mixed media paper, which was glued to a piece of cardboard. My daughter wanted me to make a box within a box within a box. I did that and I went from there to get the effect that you can see in the photo below. After that, I added the kaleidoscope of flowers.
