More ATCs

More ATCs from my Community Hub over at Mystele's ning site. These were so much fun to do. You can still sign up for a free hub if you are interested. ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) are basically just miniature works of art with a standard size of 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. They are also referred to art card editions and originals (ACEOs) when offered for sale. Of coures mine are not flat so I think that kicks them out of the "standard" category

I managed to limit myself to  big red hair on only one of them. It's pretty obvious from most of my other work that this big pink and/or red hair is a big deal to me. I have no idea what that's about. Curly hair has been an issue all my life. Thankfully I was in high school in the late 80's when the big hair was in. My hair was so curly that I still straightened it a little to be in style, lol. But all of my growing up years involved hating my hair. Then, I still straightened it trough most of my 20's. In my late 20's I finally just embraced it and now I love it. It's so much easier to take care of (once I finally learned how). But the pink/red.... no idea why I can't restrain myself, lol.

I'm linking these up to Sunday Sketches and Inspire me Monday. Hop over there to see some other great entries!

Lots of pics to follow...
