What I've been doing part two

Here are a few more things I've been working on. The Journal Challenge from ATCFUN is almost over. Here are my U - V - W pages.

U - UFO - Uplifting F_____ O____.
V - Vibrant

W - Wicked with a wallet with something in it. Remember Edzel from Looney Tunes? She's cooking up some trouble for Bugs. (The recipe book is the wallet with a recipe in it).

A bookmark for my just turned 18 year old niece with some good advice on it.

Follow your heart but take your brain with you.

What I've been doing

It's been a while since my last post. I've been busy with other things but always make time to male art. Here are a few of the things I've been working on.

These three ATC's were for a music lyrics swap. 

Karma - Kamelot
Swinging on a Star - Bing Crosby - I still walk around singing this song.

What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong
I ended up making four Thanksgiving post cards for a mingle on ATCFUN yahoo group. I just wasn't happy with any of them. But the Scarecrow was the best I thought so that's the one I traded. I really do need to work on my 'oh so boring backgrounds'.

 And I sent flowers to a few friends that needed something to smile about.

Thanks for looking.

Halloween & journal challenges

Just a few Halloween post cards I did  for swaps (and myself) and a couple of journal challenges.

I almost always have to go back and add something to the journal challenge page that I left off. I always seem to overlook at least one thing on the challenge until I'm finished and go back to read it again.
S was Sacred which I had a lot of trouble with. How do you paint faith?  What I left out?  Sparkle!  So the heart has glitter on it. 

S - Sacred with sparkle

 T wasn't as hard for me.  Timeless with a time piece of some sort on it.  I didn't leave anything off.  At least I don't think I did!  I tried to get the drawings inside an hourglass but it just wouldn't co-operate so, a pocket watch.  I'm not really a big fan of ballet but whats more timeless than Swan Lake surrounded by Starry Night?  You can't really see my stars . Well, Van Gogh I'm not.  But it was fun.

T - Timeless with a time piece

Now to the next journal challenge.
UFO - Uplift F______ O_______.  

Thanks for looking.
