Stampotique ATC swap

Nikki Woodward at Stampotique Designers Challenge on Facebook, organises an ATC swap each month, and I decided to join in, its been a long time since I was in the ATC market. But it holds a special place in my heart, as it was through this I found art that I love, and began to make good friends in the crafting community.

Had great fun in July preparing two ATC's to be sent out for the swap, the theme was "sing a song". My initial thoughts were arrgh what do I do, but then when I hit the groove (pun intended) I found it both easy and fun to do.

So these are the two atcs that I sent out


and then these were the two I received,


which I think are fantastic and so creative.  The event gets everyone to post them on facebook as they receive them, and the talent and creativity of people is amazing.

For those that need help, my two are Pharrell Williams (Happy) and Queen (Bohemian Rhapsody) and I received Pink Floyd (Another brick in the wall) and Dolly Parton (9-5).

I am really looking forward to the next challenge, and would recommend it.

365 calendar 2014 - update 2

April - lots of little people, faces drawn to show emotion of day, not very good at drawing though so not many faces,

May - my bucket list tick, visited the giants Causeway and tried to represent it as a calendar page

June was JoFY month, really enjoyed doing these flowers and the vases, pretty impossible to write on vellum though.

July, I was late so went for colourful backgrounds cut into squares for each day, turned out quite effectively.

More update coming soon . . . mwah!
