So I just started making ATC's and I find it really addictive. I have used a lot of ephemera that I obtained from the paper/ephemera swap round 6. I am also in the seventh round!! Thanks to my great partners Balkandina and Librarylolita!

As you can see I am quite oriented towards female experiences and I also love poetry....


This is one of the first ones I made and a favorite of mine. It says: "this monotony is exactly what makes the charm of marriage"







My Marilyn suite of three:







This is a set of two that belong together.



This one has two "mates" but I quite like it on its own as well.

I would love comments on my works... Thanx!

Those are great!  I love all the images of women.  I honestly can't choose a favorite.

You're off to a great start!  I think my fave is the first Marilyn card.

I love the little kid card.  It speaks volumes to me.  This is a cool "craft."  Your artful selections are very much like good poetry.  Thanks for sharing.

I LOVE your work...Especially the story of pollination and Bake 350 series. It's nice to see some of my former ephemera get better use than sitting in boxes!!!

Those are all good- my favorite is the last one- I like it's diagonal composition and that shiny tape (?) that you used. The Marilyn series is a close second. Nice work Smiley

Thanks! It is also my favorite! The shiny stuff is a strip of pink shiny paper that I received from Balkandina. There was only a small scrap left but I managed to put it to use. It's almost all gone but I wish I had more...I also love the Marilyn series. Oh, who am I kidding - they're all my favorites!
