I haven't done much 'finished' art lately. I need to get busy. I've been trying to make my backgrounds interesting. I mean really, my backgrounds are just boring. Yep, I see you shaking your head up and down. You know I'm right. I'm using more stencils and templates. We'll see how it works out.

This is a Journal challenge from  raeven-fire on the Yahoo group ATCFUN. Celebrating finishing the Alphabet challenges. The figure is from a free template but I can't remember where I got it.

This is a postcard I did using the clocks stencil my friend Claudine sent me. I love it. I'm not as good with stencils as she is but I am practicing.  Check her blog claudinesartcorner She's great and does some really good tutorials.

Thanks for looking.

X, Y & Z

We have finished up the Alphabet Journal challenges on my Yahoo group ATCFUN. I enjoyed doing them.

X for Xeroxing - A Xerox machine makes copies. In other words it makes a lot of the same thing. A Repeating Pattern.

This one feels unfinished but nothing else came to mind so what ya see . . .

X - Xeroxing
Y for YES - Total Permission to say YES to your dreams, your hopes, your health, your self care, yourself.

I went to a fantastic website and used it for some of the doodles. Tangle patterns

Y - Yes

Z for Zetti - Make a page or a spread in the Zettiology style. The only thing you MUST do is use some Zebra Stripes.

Zetti is not my favorite thing. I looked at tons of Zetti style pages, made a list of things, grabbed a magazine and here's the end result. I think it gave me a headache! Or maybe it was the glue.

Z - Zetti
Thanks for looking.
