So, I have decided that all of my ATCs this month for swapping will be stippling. I can't stop making dots! Here are a few more that I've just finished.
I really urge everyone to try this technique. It has opened my eyes to shading things correctly. I used to be really timid with black and dark shading, and now I'm like "Sure. This huge space can be black! And the one next to it can be...lighter black! Woo!"

The last one isn't for a swap and I'm not terribly happy with it, but it is what it is. *shrug*

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

wow - that is lovely - did you go cross eyed doing all of that fine stippling?Huh  The last piece almost has a hypnotic effect with the haloing effect around her head.

If anyone is swapping with me & happens to see any of the Pickup Trucks Forever stamps on their mail - please pop them in the package for me - my hubby would love them!  Huge pre-emptive thanks

They are all great. My favorite is the angel. These dark areas must be a pain to fill with tiny dots.
