More ATCs

Here are some more ATCs I've been working on. I'm planning on trading these at Art and Soul - where, apparently, I'll be making lots of new friends since NO ONE I know is going. I do plan on having fun - and maybe even sleeping in past 7am. Wow. That would be NICE! This first one is my favorite:

I definetely feel a tree thing coming on. I just actually love this tree branch I drew with a sharpie. So, I started drawing lots of tree branches and, well, I like trees, ok? They are a very positive image - life, growth, strength, arms reaching out. I like those kind of thoughts.

Sorry everything is crooked, but I'm lazy! Then, I am also somehow loving the juxtaposition of the butterflies on the black netting. Am I trying to capture something beautiful and delicate? You bet.

So, is anyone out there in bloggyland going to Art and Soul? Is anyone out there in bloggyland actually reading this blog? Ok, I know there are a few of you to whom I am eternally grateful!

Ok - twist my arm - I do have ONE New Year's resolution - I want to get some how-to videos on this blog. The first will be some simple image transfers. My most popular class by far - I've taught it over 10 times in the last two years to full classes almost every time. So, stay tuned - you'll get to watch the video for free!!!
