I also got an ATC duo completed using wire and beads as an alternative to the traditional styles of ATC. Yes one is larger than the other, but the small one is not quite ATC size either, so they balance each other out lol.
These ATC's are for the following challenges:
MIM Challenge Valentines (unable to link!)
sketchy colours #242 Green, burgundy and pink
Country View #24 Drips and Drops
crafty calendar Anything Goes
CCM #132 Love, Love, Love
CASology 133 Love
crafting by designs Love is in the air
deep-ocean #97 Love is all around
creative moments #61 Love
Allsorts 298 Not birthday
simplycreatetoo #79 Anything Goes
ATC #1 Took the stripy burgundy paper on a diagonal cut to bisect the base card, which was not coloured to the edges. The wire sentiment was added over this line with a wire spiral to embellish at the bottom.
ATC #2 mounted the dripped green card onto the stripy paper. The love sentiment had pink beads added during the sculpting, and this as added diagonally to the card.
My little chick came out too play today, and even flew for the first time properly (only a short distance though). I managed to get a little video of him playing out!
Finally the Audio Book Review
Daisy Miller by Henry James
This is a short novella based around the Victorian era or similar. Daisy Miller is an uneducated, common, but very pretty American girl who catches the eye of an American gentleman who has been living in Geneva. The Miller family has gone to Rome for the weather, as the mother suffers an illness, but Daisy does not act the way the higher society think a young girl should act. She flirts excessively with all the men, and is constantly seen, without an escort, in the presence of a young Italian man. Unfortunately her behaviour gets the better of her.
As a short story this is quite interesting and gives an interesting impression of how naïve and innocent American girls were seen by the Europeans in that era. However, there is little in the way of a plot, rather just a brief overview of a girl’s life from a young man’s perspective.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog.
