Paper Whimsy Chunky ATC



I've joined the Paper Whimsy group and this was my second swap with the group. I got Mary Ann's name and this is what I created for her. Since I'm still new to the group, and I really only had a few sheets of papers, I needed to wait until my order came from PW to finish this up. I did know that I wanted to go with the turquoise color though, and had just recently purchased this crackle paint. I painted and waited for it to dry, and then I sanded down the edges to give it a worn look. After I got my items from PW, I knew what I was going to do and started creating. My favorite part is embellishing. A little of this and a little of that. I knew that I wanted to add a knob on the top, so I headed out to the local Hobby Lobby to take a look at what they had. I tried this one, I tried that one...but my favorite one was this clock face. Now that I think about it, I should have bought more. You know how it is when you find a pair of shoes or a pair of jeans that fits perfectly and you wish you had purchased more than one pair....

Anyway, this was my first attempt at a Chunky ATC and I'm happy with my results.
