ATCs


I was at Bizzy Bs last night for ATC night. It was so nice to see everyone again, because I missed the March meeting. I didn't have time to make ATCs to trade for this session(the theme was spring) -- I was too sick and had a lot of work to catch up on for school! March's theme was Black and White and I was sorry to miss it, so I made two and also made a black and white self portrait. I used some paper that Traci Bautista gave us to play with at ArtFest, and then I added some images and then I embellished using a white signo pen and a black glaze pen. I like doing self portraits. I'm going to try to do a new self portrait ATC every month.

Next month's theme at Bizzy Bs is Royalty. By the way, I'm on the road to recovery: I'm feeling lively. I cleaned out my garden this morning (how can such a little dog make such a huge mountain of poop?) This afternoon will be spent doing income tax. wooo hooo! tomorrow will be spent playing in altered books, calendars and journals. Once I unbury my art table.....

Oh: Bizzy B's will be at The CreativFestival at the International Centre (near the airport) in Toronto next weekend (April 20-22) http://www.csnf.com -- they will be introducing some new rubber stamp lines that they are carrying including Character Constructions !!!! http://www.characterconstructions.com
I won't be going to the show (I don't drive) (I go to the fall show which is downtown) so I hope that Barb has some leftovers for me! Although I did buy some new rubber stamps last night...... I'll play with them AFTER the income tax. That will be my reward.........

O mon Dieu! Character Constructions?? Bizzy had better have a good stock of them in the shop, of I will be very upset!!!!. I almost ordered some from Catherine Moore but my budget just wouldn't support it right now.

I'm so glad you're feeling better. Here's to your full recovery.

I'm in the middle of tax stuff too. That's what I'm doing right now. xoxo

I am glad your feeling better Martha, I enjoyed seeing you at atc night. I think your images of Lauren would make lovely stamps and collage images, but perhaps those are your special images and only for your art, she is so lovely! How is your glue book coming along or is it? I can't wait to get my hands on those Character Constructions stamps, I did order, quite a lot, bad me, he hee!

Martha I love these ATC's! Where do you get a black glaze pen and what brand is it? I have been trying to find one. Your girl is sooooo cute. And I also want to say that I too have some of those Character Construction stamps. We have so much in common! Love writing back & forth. Later

I love your black and white ATC's too! I hope you continue to feel better and better. I know you have not been well for several months now. And have still continued to produce heaps of amazing art.

By the way Holly told me she received the most amazing charm from you at Artfest. It sounds wonderful!

And I wear the ' nutty' fabric inchie you sent me on a charm necklace I have(people have commented on it heaps of times!)

Forgot to pop in my fabric inchie into the Dotee Doll and ATC package so will send separately.
