Peace and other ATCs

Some of this week's ATCs.


 You and me

 Girl with a bird

A4 background paper

Susie is watching TV...and 'Cat Ballou' is on screen!

1. ATC, Peace.  A response to the terrorism news today.

2. ATC, You and me.  Some little creatures 'found' on the background paint.

3.  ATC, Girl with a bird.    The girl is drawn on dry teabags which were collaged onto a watercolour background.  The flora is a stamped image.

I was keen to try using teabags after seeing PPF artist:- Irene Raphael's teabag art.  I like the effect of drawing on dry teabags...the tea stains the tissue paper with a beautiful brown colour...which complements the imagery. 

4. Background page.  Trying out Posca pens for doodling while watching 'Bones' on TV.

Not sure what I will do with the background page, but as I am in some swaps, it may be flying off abroad.

Swapping ATCS

Some people have asked whether I swap my ATCs.  I often swap them.  The collection of my ATCs so far can be seen on my Pinterest board.

If you want to swap with me, please get in touch: by commenting or by email.

I think that's all for  now.

Have a good day.

Birthday flowers

My birthday was yesterday!

I was born on the 18th March which makes my horoscope: Pisces.

I was expected on the 17th which is St. Patrick's Day.  Apparently, if I'd been born when expected, I was to be called Patricia.  I clung on for 15 mins and was born just after midnight on the next day!

Well, that's just a little bit of info about me.

I treated myself to a big box of neocolour 1 crayons for my birthday!!
