February ATC challenge... From The Heart

My contributions to the February ACT challenge offered by Deb Prewitt of 
The Blue Twig Studios. The theme was From The Heart.  Each ATC is entered into the drawing and one (sometimes two) will win all the entries.  It is incredibly fun and the talented artists that participate is nothing short of awesome.  I would highly recommend sending in a few entries.!! There is a link to The Blue Twig Studio on the right side bar.

Silk Scarf

 Spent the cold snowy week end working on this silk scarf.  Used a Sakura Identipen for the tangles, a Farico cool grey marker for the shading and added color using my airbrush and acrylic inks.

Recent ATCs

I've been working on some ATC for Deb Prewitt's blog Blue Twig Studios. There is a link to your right.  Every month she challenges us to create ATCs centered around a theme.  This month the theme was Circles.  Here are the results.  Check out her blog and play along, it's really fun because the winner gets all of the wonderful ATCs sent in for that month.  I've won twice and the creativity is awesome and inspiring.

Flood The Streets With Art

Here are my contributions to Flood The Streets With Art
They are Zentangle Tiles fixed and sealed to glass coasters.
I left them at various locations in N.East Ohio
I hope they have found happy homes.
This is such an awesome event.  It's all about creating art and setting it
free out into the world.  A concept that can be very scary to most artist, but is
is very liberating and exciting at the same time.
