The Pennywise Arts annual retreats are always a “shoebox party” which means everyone that attends brings the components of a specific project to share and we all move around the room making each project over the course of the weekend. It’s really a great way to get to try new products and techniques!
This year I decided to share my first chunky atc! I really like the chunky aspect because it opens so many doors for embellishing. I also like that it’s something that can stand alone on display rather than get tucked into a collection binder.
I apologize in advance because I’m going to be teasing you just a little by sharing this project. A couple of the items are brand new and not even on our website yet.
The focus on my chunky atc is the shaker box window filled with a mix of micro beads. The window is a clear plastic bubble that comes with a strip of adhesive on the edges. We just got in a case of many different shapes and sizes of windows and this was my first sample using one. Several members of our design team are hard at work making samples with them so we’ll have more to share soon.
Inside the window is an image from a new collage sheet created by Michele Aiello-Zendejas of Swing Shift Designs. I love these sheets and look forward to sharing the western collection with you soon!
Since it’s a perfect fit for the Cowboys and Cowgirls challenge on Gingersnap, I’m sharing this project with the gals over there! Gingersnap Creations Chestnut Theme Challenge - Cowboys and Cowgirls Check it out for lots of fun wild west inspiration! (I even recognize an artist or two there as PWA Beadie Buddies! Ü)
