Here is another variation of my floral rolo. This one is called "Floweras for Mike," named thusly because my older brother always put an "a" sound on the end of the word flower. He also said "showera". Go figure, but, it's pretty cute that he said it like that. Mom and Dad get this ATC. This is ink, watercolor and pastels.

"Night Sky in the Colorado Mountains"
Ink, watercolor, pearlescent inks and a bit of glitter. It really didn't scan well.

"Leaves of Time"

Altered Rolos

I thought I would try my hand at a "Zetti" style card, which for all I can figure mean non-sensical kinda like Cirque Del Sol-ish. You know, fantasy-ish where many of the subjects wear pointy hats and stripped tights.

One of the other ATCers (orinj) at atcards.com has been using extremely fine ink lines with color overlays. She inspired me to use that style on the rolo above. After all, ATCs are all about experimentation.

I seem to keep coming back to the foil and acrylic mixed media techniques too. They tend to flow out and evolve as I work on them. I really like this rolo, so I'm going to hang on to it for a bit I think.

More art to view

Slowly but surely I am adding more images all the time of pieces I have done. Some of them are new and some are a bit older. The fall harvest is one of my favorite times of the year. We went to Woogie's house last weekend and picked fresh peaches, pears, tomatoes, squash (which I'm sure my husband would have liked to leave behind), and even flowers for our tortoise to eat. This pear in particular caught me eye since it still had the leaves on it, so I just HAD to photograph it.

Artwork from August/September



Fading Away

Haughty Harriett

Flow Motion

It's been a while since my last entry. Summer was crazy and now it's time to get busy with some art... what I love to do. ATCs have really helped me to bloom as an artist. Not only do I enjoy making them, I love seeing what other artists are doing. With all that community, how can I go wrong with what I'm creating.

I joined a swap for rolodex cards (the samples on the top of today's entry). What you are looking at are the fronts and backs of the cards that I have created. The larger 3" x 5" scale is so different, but, not so big that it intimidates.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
