|Hand made post card|
|ATC type cards|
Then I went to Desert Art supply for the ATC swap. I miss understood how the swap was supposed to work (other attendees did too). I thought we were going to make cards to swap and I brought my cute little bag with my travel art supplies. Trust me I was prepared to create. Well that is not was was happening, people brought completed cards. Some were photo copies which I think does not really make them ATC's but I was not going to burst their bubble. What to do, what to do, panic was not allowed. I simply pulled out my supplies, my collage pieces, glue and other necessities and proceeded to make 4 ATC's that were traded. I did not have an opportunity to take pictures because they went too fast. I will post the cards I got in return tomorrow. But, it was so much fun and I was amazed at how quickly I worked within the patriotic theme. The pictures above are representations of other ATC type cards and post cards I have made in the past.
I forgot just how much fun they are to make.
Day 9. worked on ICAD number 8 - Mandala and 9 Alphabet. I struggled with the Mandala because I was not confident in my ability to draw Mandala. Then the lightbulb went off. I have rubber-stamps that are representations of Mandalas. O joy, O joy. I stamped my little heart away this afternoon. I have to paint the cards and it will be complete. I sometimes forget about using my stamps and stencils in my art. I have to get better at using all of my tools.
