This ATC is for a swap I'm doing on swap-bot (and I hope the member its going to isn't on here so it doesn't spoil the surprise!)

The swap is for An Adventure in a Flying Saucer. You are allowed to write to your friend and tell them of the things you have seen- and you have to include something like a picture of something you have seen or an ATC or a paper doll (flat traveller).



Please be gentle, its my second ever ATC. Cardboard backing, painted with acrylics and wording added with silver gel pen.

Not to worry hon. You met the requirements. "you are here" always tickles my funny bone for personal reasons.  Cheesy

If you decide to add anything, think, "Jetson's" cartoon.

Three ATC's for another swap- Middle Eastern Theme!




The Egypt one is papyrus with a hand-painted scarab beetle in a mix of acrylic and glitter glue!

The Hebrew one is collaged printed papers (from PC) and the Star of David is gel pen.

The Arabic one is collaged printed papers (PC again) and the dove actually says Peace and Love in Arabic! Gel pen again Smiley

Hope you like them- any comments/ crits welcome Smiley

Some more ATC's Smiley I have been busy doing these recently and started to find my own style. I've also been doing a lot of swaps on other sites so I may not have most of these cards.


Star shaped ATC


Shell shaped ATC


Mandala One- four part ATC picture


Boat on the Lake, pen and pencil sketch


Waiting for her boat to come in. Pen and pencil sketch


Silhouette at Sunset


Boat New/Damaged. Collage with Braid Knot.

Hope you like them. Any comments and crits welcomed

The main image on the last one is one overhead shot of a marina that was hit by Hurricane Katrina. It was such a powerful image I just had to use it for the background. The only added bits are the other boat and the string.
