521  4 vintage image winter fun cards with quotes in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by blupaisan on: January 13, 2013 04:25:30 PM
I just noticed on the website that I go to in order to give away and find free stuff, that there are quite a few ATCs up for bid and they are going at a good 'price.'  So I made these to put on the site...

Thanks for looking. Sure were fun to make!

I am posting what Dread Lady got from me awhile back. It is on her things with mustaches theme.  I actually saw one of these for real pulling into our camping spot at a folk music festival!

I only just now noticed that the grill looks sorta like teeth under the mustache!  Didn't even mean that to happen, ha ha.

I just opened an herbs card from corchen..... first, when I pulled the envie from my mailbox I actually squeeeeeed.  Look at how tiny it is!  I put a penny on it for reference...

Then, a gorgeous bit of paper explaining the card.... it has plantlife embedded in it.

And finally la piece de resistance...  her first ATC! (corchen is a newbie with us).  I think she did an awesome job!

I luuuuv texts within ATCs.   It is from a poem, "Muiopotmos, or the fated of the butterflie" The spelling looks like is a very olde poem indeed!
I love the framing, the bit of herb at the top, so meticulously cut out. Thank you so much, corchen!!  I think I will display it in my kitchen.

I sure hit the jackpot today!!  I got three awesome cards

First, from La Chapa

Is that gorgeous or what? It is for my honeybees theme. On Thanksgiving day, we had a honeybee in our house... heaven knows where it came from! We are in upstate NY so it was out of season. It looked very troubled so we brought it outside and fed it some honey. It seemed to recover after eating and flew off.
I really love this card!!

Also from La Chapa on my fennec fox theme

a stunning piece of art. Both cards done with chalk and pastel pencil.
Thank you so much, La Chapa.

Next, on my moveable theme, from pilarfarmer, it looks like an ordinary partly cloudy day...

but you move the thingamabobbie at the bottom,

and slowly, a butterfly begins to emerge from behind the cloud...

Thank you so much, pilarfarmer. I truly love it. You have inspired me to experiment with moveables myself. I am nervous, but must try it!

525  All things retro... in New Swap Theme Ideas by blupaisan on: January 06, 2013 12:23:44 PM
I think a lot of folks here enjoy the retro scene. I would love to do a retro swap. It could include all sorts of goodies.... aprons, art, greeting cards, recipe boxes, alterred tins for holding bobby pins (oh so retro), ATCs, pin cushions, crocheted or knitted things, embroidery, pillow cases, regular pillows, all sorts of jewelry, jewelry boxes, T shirts, clocks, alterred mirrors, notebooks/diaries, bags, wall hangings, planters, pencil holders, the list goes on!

526  Have we done this yet? WHAT to do with all your favorite ATCs... in Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. by blupaisan on: January 04, 2013 01:10:08 PM
I have sooo many wonderful ATCs but putting them in a photo album is getting kinda old and I was wondering if anyone is interested in either creating something else will all the ATCs you have, or coming up with a bang-up way of displaying them?

Here is the awesome Fennec Fox card I just got from Oath Keeper. I love him! It is titled Basking the Day Away. Makes me want to be this little guy for awhile....
Thanks, Oath Keeper!

528  barn and birches, late fall (pastels) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by blupaisan on: December 29, 2012 03:00:34 PM

This is my favorite pastel I have ever done. I love working outside. Actually, I don't think I do indoor work at all with pastels....  This hangs in my Mom's room in her nursing home.

530  Wood burned drum holder for Hubby in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by blupaisan on: December 28, 2012 02:02:44 PM
My husband's round drum is always rolling off the shelf. So I bought an antique box and burned these words into it. They are significant because he drums after meditating...
