Hola Kindred Spirits ~

It's been awhile since I've strolled into other Craftster forums besides knittin', crochetin' and sewin'! So glad I peeked in here...you all have rekindled my love of creating ATCs! Smiley

I've modified my original subject line so that I may keep adding to it without creating new threads.


VOLAR!
Spanish meaning "to fly!"

This beautiful Latina is being encouraged to use her wings and FLY!




VOLAR! is an ATC (artist trading card) I created several months ago. I seek out the unusual in an image to covert into a crown or halo. In the case of VOLAR!, the crown is made up of the castle's roof in the background. Careful placement of the chica makes it appear it sits atop her cabeza.

For all who look upon "illegal aliens" as "second-class": Remember this girl; this Princesa.
I found her working in the fields and soon discovered she was royalty.

Thanks Chrissydot!

I just noticed the May Challenge ... so I am considering making a complementary ATC to tie-in with VOLAR so I can participate. Smiley
