August Lottery ATC for ATC_Fun

Claude Monet Quote
The card is from a recycled Taco Bell box. A piece of deli paper was glued on to mute the printed box. I went through my scrap bin pulling out interesting pieces and gluing the on to the ATC. I had the quote printed and drew my sparrow. I colored him with my watercolored pencils and blotted it so it would not be too vibrant. 
An orange watercolor was applied around the sparrow which created a bit of a 'mohawk' affect that was seen by one of my artist friends on ATC_Fun. I thought this was a great oops! 
I enjoyed getting back into my studio room. Will be doing it much more often.

Good Times

Good Times

ATC_Fun, Yahoo Group's June Lottery for 2015 is a 'Nautical' theme. This is my creation. Everyone who puts in an entry is eligible to win them all.

I really enjoyed working on this one. I did the background one day and came back to it today to finish it with the focal point.

March Madness ATC Lottery

Rabbit in a Hat Coming Out of an EGG

Nothing like last minute creations! I couldn't think of anything until today...the last day to place something in the lottery! The thing is, it was MY lottery topic cause I won last month! Everyone was popping in with great ideas. 

The cracked egg is from a Gelli print. Background is from a Taco Bell box with deli paper and gesso on it. The pink on the ears is tissue paper...the glasses are Stickles.

Valentine Card to my Granddaughter...

Be My Valentine Kiara...

...As it reads on the inside. With a special note that her Grandmama loves her. The pocket is full of foam hearts with sticky backs that she can use and other little notes on hearts like the candy ones.

The darker pink heart over the pocket is hand cut from an excess paint wipey. The other one is also hand cut from a Gelli Plate print I did.

Her name is popped up in the center. As is the two pink hearts 'Cutie' and 'Love U'. the other two hearts behind are stenciled on and say 'Love' and 'Kiss me'.
