Artist Trading Card

Here is my latest ATC. Women's Lib. The dictionary text is: Woman suffrage - Political suffrage as applying to women; women's right to vote. I felt this lady and her little dog may have just come from some sort of rally for women and against corsets! (maybe those big hats too!)

New 1" squares & a new ATC

Ladies in Gray - Lia at Art Junk Girl says people are always asking her why she likes to do 1" squares. I can answer that question - Because they are FUN! For me its a quick way to create something and I like the up close feel of the pictures and words. They are quick and to the point. Try a few you might like it!

Unanswered Letters - Artist Trading Cards (ATC) are also FUN! They offer a little bigger area to work with but they can be quick and easy to make too! Both the ATC and squares offer a place to use up your scraps.

The lovely lady in this ATC was sent to me by Gail at Shabby Cottage Studio. I bought one of her pieces and she was kind enough to include a few goodies to use in my art. This is the first piece I've used and I think it turned out well.

A collage about my Dad

My Dad passed away 16 years ago today and I've been thinking about him all day. Not sad thoughts but happy thoughts. I did a post to him on my other blog here and I did this collage also. I wanted to put into words everything he was. I'm sure there are more words but for now these are my Dad.

A few things......

A few things that caught my "eye" while looking through a magazine. The buttons make me think of my grandma, I want to try to paint soon, I like the jar with the shells, Spring......

Where do you like to escape too? the beach, the country, the pool, a walk with your dog, vacation, camping, a cruise, a quiet dinner or cards with friends, gardening? Just a few of my ideal escapes.

Finally a few minutes to Collage!

I finally found a few minutes to sneak away to my craft room and work on something. Anything! Here is what I came up with. Just a quick piece. I had already glued some backgrounds down. I like to take a page from a magazine that has pretty colors and such and glue items down to change it make it something new and different. This time I had cut the ivy border from a magazine. Everything else are fun things. "Oh Ethel" is the title. I guess her little friend, the pretty little elephant, gave her the flowers. Now maybe they will have a cup of tea.
