October ATC Trade
"Hardware" is the theme for the October trade which excited me as one of my favorite places to shop is in the hardware store. Home Depot has some wonderful paint sample cards that I have spray painted . The weight is perfect for ATCs and I use many layers of spray paint, often topping the colors off with a mist of bronze or silver. I use lots of hardware objects as "stencils" between the layers of paint. Cutting the paint cards to size left me with some lovely smaller pieces that I use in the designs. The colors are rich and complex.
I had some copper wire and was pulling it apart to use it as thread when the end of the wire got bushy and looked like twisted trees. So, I ended up with a tree, fruit perhaps, and a moon. "Moon Glow"
