More ATCs... in progress


Last week I posted some finished ATC's and it was the first time I had linked up with PPF and Sunday Sketches in a couple of months. I had actually been feeling quite discouraged with my artwork and growth so I backed off from linking up or even posting. I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to have the encouragement of other artists last week. Your comments are just so uplifting and greatly appreciated.

I've been on an ATC kick since those first ones I made. I'm having so much fun that I can't stop making them! Here are several in progress. I don't have anything glued down at this point, just trying out my options. I'm linking up to Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches this week. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. There is a monthly group over at willowing.ning.com that I want to try out. You have to sign up for the site, but it is free. A friend of mine has participated in this one and seems to really like it. Also, I'm going to try out ATC's for All with any that I have available this time around.

  8. Don't be discouraged. Just keep creating. The process itself is just as much fun as the end result. Don't you just love to find paint down your fingernails?

    I love to see your art. More please!!

  12. Wonderful ATC'S I hear you about being discouraged!! Just because you don't have a new dress doesn't mean you won't be embraced at the party!! lol Just knowing people are stopping by builds incentive to create...eventually the muse kicks in again!! Looks like you are well on your way with this beautiful art!! I love ppf and all the wonderful artists!!

  30. Aren't ATCs fun, fun, fun! I like your redhead. Does Wetcanvas.com still have ATC trades where 20-30 artists make ATCs, send them to, I forget exactly how it works, but you end up getting cards from each of the artists. I have a notebook full from when I took part several years ago - and I really treasure that notebook! And I have two ATCs that I framed and are in my family room. Happy painting!

  32. Noooo! Never stop making art! Never, never, never! It's a part of you now. Stopping would make you miserable. Add a little beauty to the world. :)

  33. This is where all student loans fears, resistance and
    struggles start. A 40 year old will buy a different product
    than a 60 year old. Illegal use continues to this day, I've been studying the most successful ways to grow your farm business, increase revenues and profits. Some of them offer free delivery services to the recipients.
