1  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap - March 2013 GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by llisaredd on: March 29, 2013 05:15:10 PM
I received some fantastic ATCs this week Smiley I'm sorry for just getting the photos up. My kids and I have been on spring break this week so we've been busy playing Cheesy

I received my first Germ/Virus Theme ATC! And it's very appropriate that it is the common cold, lol!

It's also appropriate that they aren't happy little things isn't it? I love that michelleandbean made them green! Thank you Cheesy

My second ATC for that theme came from Helcura.

This lovely organisim is "Ebola, one of the hemmoragic fevers" - looks innocent doesn't it? I love it! Thank you Helcura!

My second card for the Fine Arts ABCs came from our first time swapper Doctor Whattayadoinghere.

Squee!! One of my favorite paintings converted to a Z! I love it! Welcome to Craftster and swapping Dr.WYDH Cheesy

And then from WideEyedLife, this amazing ATC for my Green theme!

I love this so much! I'm so glad your green muse took you in this direction!

I received some lovely ATCs at the end of last week Smiley

From kmac for my dragonflies theme

I love this! How did you make the wings? Love that they have texture and are thin like a real dragonfly wing. They also have that iridescent quality that dragonflies have. I want to try this technique Smiley Thank you so much!

From SonjaBoo for my songbirds theme

This is so lovely! SonjaBoo explained the background is "sprayed inks & gesso using a stencil." I love this technique! The bird is made from cork and painted. It's so lovely and such bright spring colors. Thank you!

I received my first Fine Arts inspired ABC ATC! It's from blupaisan who was inspired by the works of Charles Rennie Mackintush. She was able to see his works in person in Glasgow when in University in Scotland (so jealous!). I love this!

M is for Mackintush

I have completely missed this gallery Sad Too much came up with work and my university classes and Craftster had to take a back seat. I have received some lovely ATCs last week and need to share them with everyone. In the order received...

A quote by Dr. Seuss from Oath Keeper. It's hard to tell but the embossed swirls are shiney Smiley Very pretty! And I didn't know this was a Dr. Seuss quote either! Thank you Oath Keeper!

A quilt by Homerof2. I love the design and the bright colors! Wouldn't this make a lovely quilt? Thank you!

Another Dr. Seuss quote, this time by FairyHazeDesigns. I love this quote! If I recall correctly it's from The Birthday Book. Thank you!

Kitty Herman chose Artist Choice for a theme but fulfilled my love of chickens Cheesy This is inspired by the memory of her aunt's chickens coming to home to roost at sunset. Thank you so much Kitty! I have similar memories from my childhood and our small farm.

6  February ATCs (pic heavy) in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by llisaredd on: March 06, 2013 01:48:09 PM
After months of lurking and thinking about joining I took the plunge in February and joined the ongoing ATC swap. I am addicted. Plain and simple. Addicted.

These are my first ATCs and the ones received for the February swap. I'll add the rest when they are received. In no particular order...

Sugar Kitty - my 17 year old cat: Watercolor and ink.

Wonky Squares: Watercolor pencils on cloth.

28 - inspired by the movie "28 Days Later": Acrylic.

C3PO: Acrylic and watercolor

OHIO: Watercolor, ink, and collage.

Orange Swirls: Quilled paper. My first go at quilling. I really enjoyed making this and liked it until it was smashed in the mail Sad Lesson learned.

Start the Day Right: Coffee and watercolor.

The I Eye: Water color

The Letter A: Acrylic, yarn and glue

T is for Turtle: watercolor, ink, collage.

I have received some awesome ATCs in the last few days. Sorry it's taken me a bit to get the photos up. I was having issues with my editing software and didn't want to put up bad photos. Without further ado....

From Mountains and Clouds I received the following ATCs Smiley

A White-Rumped Shama for my song bird theme. Her letter to me states that these are fairly common around her in Hawaii. I have to tell you my daughter about flipped when she saw I had mail from Hawaii! Cheesy She has been obsessed with going there for 3 of her almost 7 years!

And because she had it lying around she sent this as well -
Tree and Bird

I love this! I'm so glad you had it lying around! Thank you! Smiley

From La Chapa for my dragonflies theme:

Anax Imperator
I love this! I think dragonflies look like flying gems and this captures that so well! Thank you! Smiley

From michelleandbean for my trees theme:

I love how this looks like it's on fire! Kinda like how trees look in autumn Smiley Thank you Smiley

From LauraM for my chickens theme:

O M G I love this so much! You have some serious skill lady! Thank you so much! If you ever wanted to send me something like this in, oh, say an 8x10, feel free Cheesy I love chickens!

and if that isn't enough, from LauraM for my dragonflies theme:

This is stunning! I love how certain elements are not in focus, as if this is a macro photograph. Thank you so much!

I received a fabulous hoopla from Homerof2 Cheesy She was inspired by one on my pinterest and incorporated my love of green. These are lyrics from my favorite hymn. I adore this hoop! It is going up above my crafting desk to always remind me and inspire me. Thank you so much Homerof2!

Love the cat/duck ATC! Cheesy

I received 2 fantastic ATCs over the weekend Smiley First, from cabaute I received

Fanghorn! I loved these scenes in the movie and also in the book. Ents are so cool!

She also sent me some extra papers already cut to ATC size. These will be on ATCs soon!

Then from Homerof2 I received a fabulous Green ATC.

I love all the fabrics she used! It's so tidy too! I would have had to go "wonky" rather than be so tidy Cheesy

Thank you Homerof2 and Cabaute for the great ATCs!

 I received 2 wonderful ATCs. They are treasures made specifically for me and they suit my tastes so perfectly Smiley

Paperbeau claimed me for 1 ATC with my tree theme. She sent me 2 and one is double sided Smiley

This is the extra:

"Our Green World"
(How did she know that I adore stamps from all over the world? I just love looking at this!)

My tree ATC:

"The Forest Floor"
This is covered with moss, leaves, and a fern! Real ones! I love this!

and the back is another ATC:

"The Old Tree Watches"
That's all hand drawn/painted!
(I blurred her name out, just in case)
