Prompt: March Battle: Netflix
Team: Bits and Bobs
Project Name: My First Masterboard
Project Link: I didn’t give this it’s own post (so I’m sure it doesn’t count for the Community Bonus), but here’s where I posted it in the Paper & Mixed Media Craftalong: Paper & Mixed Media Craftalong

Brief Description: Last week, there was an ATC Blitz and I decided to give it a go. When it was suggested that there might be a scaled down version happening this weekend, I knew I needed to get a head start on it. I had the most trouble with making the backgrounds of my cards, so I decided to try making a masterboard so I could cut it into ATC sized pieces. I started by gluing down torn pieces of tissue paper & a page from a road atlas, then I added a layer of blue paint. I then attempted to use a piece of a bubble wrap envelope to add some pattern, but the paint was too runny, so it didn’t look that great. I finished it by layering on some stencils- first in black, then silver, then white.It was a lot of fun! And, it fits the prompt because I watched Netflix while parts were drying, and I’ll be watching Netflix while I work on any ATCs this weekend.

No special equipment, just a needle, so it’s very portable. It’s done in peyote stitch. If you are familiar with kandi jewelry, it’s the same technique.

Congratulations, @roler, for crafting ALL THE THINGS! I have a couple of other ATCs that I can use for a prompt or two, but I’m hoping to get some other things done in the meantime. My goal is to finishe every prompt, too! I’ve been slightly waylaid by some clerical work for school, but i’m chipping away at that in between my craft time :slight_smile:

I went back and edited my posts that had ATCs (the master board post already had a link). Hooray!

Okay… I need to get something done for school, and then I can craft for the rest of the day to finish the last 4 prompts!

I was hoping to get a few more prompts done but so few finishes recently :confused::frowning:

Oh well, if I get on and finish some, I’ll have a head start on the new season :grinning:

I’m excited for the new season! I keep a running list of projects that I can do. Then, I try to fit them to whatever the prompts are. Often, during the season, there’s some shuffling. This season, I checked off quite a few from my list. Of course, I always end up adding in new projects, too :grinning:
