Hot Women

Last night was my local ATC night at Bizzie B's. The Hive is growing! I made 15 ATCs, but the number is getting unmanageable. It's hard to do your best work when you're churning out a production line! I like my ATCs to be individualized....... Thank you everyone for trading! And thanks to everyone who came for the socializing. And a special thanks to Ray for coming and driving me home!

I did these with transparencies (layering background paper underneath. I think that this is my favourite way to make ATCs. The bottom right card (feelings could get hurt) isn't a transparency -- it's images with tulle over the top. I also made some others with paper /paint etc, but I lost the scan somewhere on my computer, and I can't remember what I named it...

Someone asked me where I get my word text from -- sometimes, if I need a specific quote, I print it on the computer and then age it with tea. But usually, I cut from books. Lately I've been using an old horoscope book, as well as a Trixie Beldon book and Little Women. Oh, and I have a few copies of "The complete works of Shakespeare", so they are bound to show up in next months "Quotes" ATC theme at Bizzie B's! (August 10th -- put it on your calendar right now!!) Although I do have a set of Shakepeare quotations in rubber somewhere......
