2  Harold and the Purple Crayon in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by elmersgloo on: April 08, 2007 09:32:40 PM
Once upon a time there was a little boy named Harold, who had a purple crayon...

...and he liked to draw.  Grin

Both cards together:

I think I did okay Cheesy It was a little hard to keep the purple crayon theme without having an almost bland card, but if you read the book, it makes sense being so plain! Smiley I only wish Harold had chosen a less messy medium other than crayon for us to draw with!! ^_^

This is my first challenge, hope you guys enjoy Cheesy

Thanks for the comments guys! And farmgirljane, that broken plate is awesome! I like how you made it sort of like a puzzle. =]

Okay... my last one for today, I swear I keep saying I'll go do something "productive" and always end up back at my desk with a pair of scissors!!

This one is for #71- Obsession

This particular card gave me a little bit of trouble - does anyone else have any experience with gluing teeny tiny pieces of paper? Is there anything I can do other than slapping it on a gluestick and sticking it back down on the paper to make it a little more...functional?? Those teeny pieces are going to be the death of me! =]

Alright, these are my first ATC's... so be nice! Cheesy I was only going to make one to see if I could do it...and then, well, this project just had me so excited that I had to go and do four.

#31, "Flowers"

The scan on this doesnt *quite* do it justice, as you may be able to tell, most of the flowers sparkle Cheesy

#33, "Expectations"

#39, "Dreams"

A dream to one day be a famous movie star... =]

#52, "Deep In Thought"

I chose to do this for "deep in thought" as opposed to "puzzle" because these stupid sodoku things ALWAYS keep me deep in thought-there is tiny text on there that mentions keeping your eye on one thing at a time so you can see the big picture, too Smiley

Any critique/suggestions are welcome! ^_^ I hope these actually fit the themes, I interpret things weird from time to time!

Quick Edit: The funny edges on some (most visible, I think, on the "Supestar" card) are because I chose to experiment with laminating my cards. In person it gives them a really cool, almost indestructible feeling, but it makes them scan kind of funny!
