(just a little photo shuffle for the topic thumbnail Wink )
Hello!

So, a few months back I joined the beginner inchies swap which although didn't quite hook me, did  in fact whet my appetite for tiny works of art.  Then, I decided to join the surprise Hallween ATC swap and that was that!  I'm now officially hooked and on to my third ongoing ATC swap.  (Most of these images can be seen in the various swap galleries.)

the inchies that started it all  

for the surprise Halloween ATC swap I made these two series...
owls,

(the one @ the top) &





and these "people" (I ended up using one of these for the ongoing swap as I had an extra left over)









These are for the October ongoing swap...

(the moon flips over on this one)




there's a few missing as I forgot to take pics :/

and these are for the November ongoing swap...




the wings come up!




there are two more, but one hasn't been received yet, and the other may or may not have been received yet

As you can see, I have found a new love!  Thank you to all the ATC craftster artists for all the inspiration and for being such a supportive and accepting group!  You are all awesome!!

 Your cards are fantastic and we are lucky to have you in the swaps! I started the exact same way, I joined an inchie swap and enjoyed it but wanted just a bit more space to draw.  Wink
 My favorites are your owls. They are just gorgeous!

Thanks so much gozer & Technicolor! I am having a blast doing the ongoing swaps, and I feel like I'm getting to flex my long latent art muscles!

Thanks ladies!  The owls are my faves too!  Especially the very first one, that's why I loaded it first so it would be the thumbnail Wink

Your 'people' are my favorites! I have wanted to get into making ATCs, but have not done so yet. Thanks for posting these though because it helps me to know that if someone just starting out can make something that amazing then I can too.

Wow, the owls are gorgeous.  I also love the skull-head-people, great collage work!  Can't wait to see more atc's from you!

Yes, I love collage, but sadly it doesn't come very naturally to me.  I didn't do any collage Dec and so far none for Jan, but your comments/compliments definitely encourage me to try some more.  Smiley
