Mixed media a-thon

There was an a-thon at the end of August on AFA. A-thon is an art marathon that is randomly scheduled for a certain number of days where you create art, mostly ATCs or other mail art, showcase them in the a-thon thread and trade like crazy. :)

I thought I'd show you I can do other media besides hand-drawn/hand-painted as well. :) The above two ATCs are made with alcohol inks for the background, stamping and collage.
I love a-thons that give challenges. For this one I had to go out of my comfort zone as I've relied on drawing for too long.

The keys are embossed with embossing powder. I was so glad that I didn't put all my crafting supplies in the attic when I was clearing my art room to make it into baby's room. :)
For the above one I got messy with acrylics again. It's been a long time since I painted. I usually just use watercolors and markers these days. The butterfly is collaged from a napkin.

I love how this one came out. :) It's a drawn dandelion on a white background with collaged butterfly post stamp and words.

Cityscape and Giraffe in a Bottle

Another set of ATCs with random themes. Cityscape and giraffe in a bottle. :)

Random pregnancy stuff:
  • this week I started pregnancy workout class, it was more stretching than sweating really
  • everyone is telling me I have a big belly and I'm only 6 months
  • we're slowly buying baby stuff like baby beds and changing tables (we need two of each)
  • my mom is a bit out of control at times and can't go by baby stuff without buying something :)
  • I just realized that my kid will have cousins that are 20 years his senior OMG! I was 17 when my niece was born and 18 when my nephew was born
  • is it normal that the baby moves so much? I mean, it's all the time with occasional down time and it's a bit annoying :)

Pick-A-Theme

What do these ATCs have in common? Well, certainly not a theme. :)

These were done for a PAT swap which means Pick-A-Theme. You sign up in a group of 5 players and each has its own theme. So, you make a card for each player in the required theme and you get back 4 cards each from a different player with the theme you've chosen. It's a great way to build up your collection of ATCs on a certain theme.

If you're an ATC artist or you're interested in trading ATC, you can join the ATCsforALL forum.

Ice Cream with Cake

I found another Round Robin set that I forgot to show you. This one was one of the firsts I made. No. 3 actually. I started the set with the Chinese umbrella and thought someone will add a geisha but the inspiration went another way. :) Mariloupatch added the ice cream and Linda4atc finished it with cake and background.

Gumball tree & Self-portrait

I think my whimsical self-portrait is pretty good but my hubby thinks it doesn't look anything like me. :)

And then I did a blind drawing self-portrait. :) Yes, you actually have to draw the face blindfolded but then you can look when you color it in. I don't know why I keep drawing purple sweaters. I don't own a purple one. I think I have one or two purple T-shirts though. But I love color purple.
