painting collage

I made the drawing collage into a painting collage. i hope to shrink it.. Print atcs and tweak a series. I have never copied atcs before. Last year almost all of the atcs I got in trades were just copies. I hope to make the prints each unique. I have about ten individual atcs almost finished. Any comments are welcome (:

elephant collage

this is the first layer for my collaged atc. I am hoping to add depth to the sections with inks, embossing, gel medium, tissue paper etc and print a few atcs then add some textures to the prints. i hope to add embroidery floss to divde the sections on the final cards. I lost my elephant drawing in the first attempt so I made it darker. Hope it works here goes.
I am making cards to trade at artiscape. I also am making charms.

Excited about art

this morning I came up with two ideas for my artist trading cards. One involves an elephant. and the other quarreling faires. LOL yesterday I used a printer to print on vellum and used embossing powder to give it some zing. I want to work on making small hearts in a similar way if I can find red embossing powder. I am sure there is sure a thing. I am looking to find utee which I have never worked with. there is so much fun stuff to play with (:

Creative Challenge

Today began on a negative note. Time, effort and prayer will make things whole again.

a kind word turns away wrath
Response can eventually change stimulus
Resurrection power is available to me to lift my old creative soul from death to life

Creative challenge for the day:
  • scan a journal page
  • read about Trina Schart Hyman
  • cut 12 Atcs to begin working on them
  • investigate buying more artist's journals
  • paint 4 backgrounds
  • set up my idea for charms
  • find the stuff to do gel medium transfers with
