Well, there was also the traditional chocolate that ARTchix includes with all their shipments, but that didn't make it as far as the studio...those of you who know me know I can't resist CHOCOLATE! I'm not sure why I ordered the Halloween ATC creativity kit but when I was shopping around their site I just needed it. I'm not usually a Halloween kinda gal but it came with some fun supplies and I came up with 2 projects so far using the kit.
The first project was an ATC using parts of the kit, some fun black and white hounds tooth washi tape and some fabulous vintage German Scrap my wonderful friend Skye shared with me. After I finished the ATC I discovered a great background for a microscope slide project and decided it should be the first one I tried to solder. I'd bought a soldering iron over a year ago with the intention of learning how to solder in my projects but just hadn't made it to that point yet. I gathered up everything I needed and started down a road that was longer than I expected. It took a bit and it's not exactly professional looking but I got the soldering done-the lumpy bumpy of it might just work with the theme of the project though.
