Craftlace Discovery

Crafty folk accumulate crafty supplies.  I have no idea why I initially bought a craftlace kit, but it somehow ended up in my stash. I decided to use this discovery to make key fobs in geocaching colors (orange, blue, green and yellow).  I did not number these because they are all the same. Throwing them into a cache near you.

I have to admit that this is not to my crafty TXGeekette standard of crafty goodness.  I'm going to have to figure out how else to use up this craft lace in a more creative way.  



I made eight of them.  Where did they end up?

Artist Trading Card (ATC): Travel Collage

This edition of Artist Trading Cards (ATC)  is probably more along the lines of what most people think of when they think "ATC".  That is, mixed media on a playing card.  Technically speaking, such a thing is an "Altered Playing Card" or APC. 

This is my version of a mixed media ATC/APC on "Phase 10" playing cards that we somehow had in our gaming stash but never used. 

Description: Mixed media on "Phase 10" playing cards.  Dishwasher Mod Podge (instead of regular Mod Podge) used for water resistance.  If you look closely at the top left edge, you can see the number of the "Phase 10" card that was used.  It is also the number that was used to number each card in this edition.

This edition has a travel theme



If you've found one of these and want to discover the geocoin associated with it, input the trackable number on the back of the card at geocaching.com/track.  It is otherwise yours to keep and do with it what you please.

Artist Trading Card: Fire - Elijah on Mt. Carmel



Acrylic on heavy cardstock, sealed with polycrylic for water resistance.

A depiction of Elijah on Mt. Carmel.  Whether you believe or not, it is, IMO, one of the more entertaining stories of the Bible. It tells the tale of Elijah, who trolls the prophets of Baal and Asherah into a contest.  They lose miserably when their deities fail and the Lord reveals himself as the one true God. 

If you've found one of these and want to discover the geocoin associated with it, input the trackable number on the back of the card at geocaching.com/track.  It is otherwise yours to keep.  Do with it what you please.
