ATCs I've received

Receiving ATCs is just as much fun as making and sending them out! Not only do you have cards to add to your collection, but you can learn so much from the different ways other artists have used to create them. I don't think I've received any made the same way twice.

The most recent set I've received came from Origami Grace. It was for a blind swap of 3/3. I loved them all. One of the cards was especially delightful. Grace created an origami heart, tied on a gold thread, then affixed this to the card as the centre point.

Mini Art Pieces (ATCs/AECOs)

I decided it was time to try my hand at mini art pieces. For months now, I've been working in a larger size and then making mini prints. These are the first hand drawn mini originals. It was easier than I had at first thought it would be.

It was a matter of first sizing up the available space and then deciding what of my subject matter would fit. No different really from what I do with a larger space. Odd how we are sometimes our worst critic.

Here they are.
