Weird Wacky Wonders ATC

I created this ATC for a swap based on Travis Louie's art. We were to make an ATC using the head of one of his pieces of work and cut out or draw what they might be doing from another source. Add anything else we wanted and then analyze the work, and make up a strange holiday.

Here is what I came up with.

National 'Take Your Pet Toad Shopping' Day!

Background is distress inks.
Man with frog is Travis Louie art. 
Body is from a magazine. 
Washi tape added to the bottom. 
Decorative corner piece added with bling.

Button Fairy Magnet

Today, I'm sharing another one of my button fairies I've created recently. I used a butterfly diecut for my wings. The lady is from a kit at Mischief Circus. Under the first big button is a purple flower with stickles added for sparkle. Buttons came from my button collection. 

On the back I glued on a magnet so this fairy can be hung on the fridge.
