ATCs -- Things with wings

Tonight's local ATC trade theme was "Things with wings" I did some birds, angels and butterflies. The bird silhouette on the coloured backgrounds was not my idea -- I saw it on Julie Prichard's blog (The Land of Lost Luggage). She has some beautiful original art in her etsy shop! It was so pretty that I had to try. I am actually going to try it with reverse applique on a t-shirt.
(the whites aren't so yellow in real life -- the camera seems to have a soft, vintage look lately)

I, also, like the dark patterned background - great idea worthy of stealing. Your ATCs are very cool.

Love these! I was wondering if you host a local ATC night in Toronto. I facilitate some make and trades, but would love to participate in some other trades! Please do check out my stuff and let me know.

These are so lovely - I have just discovered your work thru Sew Somerset and have been through your blog. You are very creative and love your fabric and paper scrap atcs and collages.

Best wishes
