At The Beach ATC

With this ATC, I had to create something using the beach as a theme... Fish, mermaids,
sea shells, sunsets, sand, sand castles, palm trees, beach toys, sandals, etc.

Round Robin #35

Here is the latest Round Robin in the cross stitch group I am in. It's a very large piece. I added the lighthouse because that is one of my dream places to live. Very unlikely, but nonetheless a dream of mine.

Stamp With Color ATC

For this swap, I had to color in a stamp of my choice and create an ATC with it. So I chose a Prima Doll stamp of course. The background is in watercolor and the doll is in colored pencils.

I just love those Primal Doll stamps. Here is an Autumn Leaves themed art journal page that I made for my swap partner. A combination of watercolors, Zentangle, and some paper piecing.

Fourth of July ATC

I absolutely love the American flag. It's very beautiful. For this swap I took some striped and star printed scrapbook paper and turned them into a flag. Of course I had to make some modifications. With the grey and white striped paper I colored the stripes red and white with colored pencils. I added more stars with a white gelly pen to the blue and white star printed paper. To make it old looking, I crumpled the assembled flag, glued it onto some cardboard, rubbed black stamp ink everywhere, and sealed it with gloss medium.
