Using Circles: Beautifully Brisk ATC Coins with Denise

Hello Everyone!

It's Denise here today, using the gorgeous Beautifully Brisk collection, with some rustic ATC coins and a Happy Day card that I made.

I made my first ATC coins a few weeks back and I thoroughly enjoyed making them and so I wanted to have a go with this beautiful collection and also go with a rustic twist.
I recycled the BoBunny packaging box and used this for the base of my coins, which added to the rustic feel of them.

I used BoBunny stencils, gesso, inks and paints to create the background and then added noteworthy and fussy cut bits and a handmade flower, from BoBunny cardstock.
Coin 1 - I am so grateful for this beautiful life and for the beautiful rain that was falling outside, as I was making this coin.

The second coin I went with a deep red and pulled off some of the covering on the cardboard, to reveal the ruts and texture. On this coin I added a laser cut chipboard piece.
Coin 2 - The colors of fall are just fabulous and the deep red is one of my favorite colors.

I love the rusty color of this 3rd coin and again added a laser cut chipboard piece, which had a face clock in it.
Coin 3 - I am thankful for many blessings and mercies and that I have time to create, play and scrap.

The last coin has a mixed colouring and has all the earthy colours of Fall. Again, I used fussy cut bits and noteworthy pieces and a handmade flower.
Coin 4 - I give thanks for my health, my family, my friends and my work. I am thankful for every new day and the many blessings that come my way!

I also created a general card with Beautifully Brisk.  I always have general cards on hand and they are good to use for any occasion.

I  used a doily die-cut and created a shaker card.  This is the first time ever that I had created one. I used the little bits that came out of the die-cut and then added some gold and orange sequins.
