The Farmer Came Home

Happy Sunday,

To day I'm going to share a completed ATC JAM from start to finish. This is one of my all time favorites. I think it turned out Jamtastic!!

Step 1: I started this JAM. I used patterned paper for the base, stamped and colored the farmer with Spectrum Noir Color Pencils and blended a bit with gamsol. I then stamped and added the quote to the card.

 
Step 2: I sent the card off to Mary Knapp. She would be what our group calls the Middler (2nd person or so called middle person). She added the piece of denim and the brad.
 
 
Step 3: Mary the Middler then sent the farmer to Stacy Weaver who dirtied him up and added the straw before sending him home (what we call a Homer).
 
 


You would expect this Farmer to be all dirty after all his travels. He started out in Connecticut went to visit New Hampshire, passed through Ohio and ended up back in Connecticut.

And that my friends is the process of an ATC JAM.

Our group has an address file. If your name is on the file list you are open to receive JAMS at any time in any quantity. If you remove your name from the list you are not receiving JAMS to work on (you would just get your completed JAMS back). So no one ever knows when they are getting any to work on or who will be sending them to you. We only post our pictures of what we did before we send them off. It's so much fun. I've been doing this for over two years and still can't wait to get to my mailbox everyday to see if I got any happy mail. When I am JAMless I make bases to send out just as I did with this Farmer.

Hope you find this as fun and interesting as I do. You never know how these JAMs will turn out as once they are in your hands you do whatever you want to them. Till next time Hope everyone has a FANTASTIC crafty week.

  2. This is a really fun idea Lori - I'd be so afraid of getting something I didn't know what to do with

    1. Sometimes I get those cards I'm not quite sure what to do with so I ask people around me what this card reminds them of and usually get some really great ideas and just go with it.

    1. I'm glad your hooked. Oct seems so far away. Can't wait till we can all get together again. My mother-in-law thinks she might want to join us this year. She thinks she would enjoy doing her crafts with us.
