Curious wanderers

Hello my lovelies! Today, I've got a couple of ATC coins that are his and hers. A little rusty and grubby for him, a little frilly and feminine for her!


My grubby guys coin has rusty wire 'stitching' - believe me, it took a little bit to get that stuff  woven in and out of the holes. And I  like going 'off the page' with ATCs to make them more interesting - after all, they are mini works of art! So I dangled a couple of rusty safety pins.


My little guys are all dressed up and looking dapper! Love that wooden bow tie - but I wonder where they've been and what curious things they've been up to! Love how much dimension can be achieved on such a small space!


And our fancy girls are more refined, with embossed and glittery paper, silk ribbon and tulle, and a couple of buttons. They've been wandering through Edwardian society - oh, the things they've seen!



These little beauties are being entered at Frilly and Funkie for their ATC challenge and A Vintage Journey

  4. Extremely CUTE!!!
    U certainly reeled me in with that awesome ‘Texas-sized’ bow tie, & this is something I’ve been wanting to try myself. I’d use quite a few of those little ‘Crazy’items on the Paper Dolls & it looks like it will work- very nicely!!!
    That set of boys is one of my fave because we raised our 2 boys like that... they STILL dress alike & don’t even notice it!!! Lol
