Yellow Pages ATCs and A Lovely Day

I spent the morning with a dear friend playing on her computer, looking at her art and just generally having a good time. We had lunch at a local and very good restaurant before I headed home to take care of a sick little girl while her Mom went to pick up her kindergarten sister for ballet class.

It is now after dinner and I am sequestered in my art room playing. I got online and downloaded the latest video lesson from my Faces class and hope to get uninterrupted time tomorrow to paint the eyes and lips on my work in progress. I also spent some time finishing my yellow pages ATCs. I am quite happy with how they turned out and think using a phone book, especially yellow pages with ads on them is a great way to sort of have predetermined what picture you are going to draw as your focal point.

I had a package when I returned home with the 10 whimsical cats from an earlier swap I was in with the group ATCsForAll. They are really nice and when I get a chance to look more closely at them, I will perhaps post some of them for your viewing pleasure.

Meanwhile, I need to get to work on a few other swaps I have signed up for, namely:

(30) 5 x 5s with a quote theme that are due on May 30
(3) ATC sized featuring hand drawn art supplies due April 15
(3) ATC sized featuring a drawing of something that represents a four letter word (clean!!)
due May 4
(3) ATC sized with drawn/painted barns due April 30

Also, don't forget to go to the earlier post to leave a comment so that you are eligible for the lovely book that is being given away.

  1. Vicki - I really like what you did with your Yellow Pages ATCs. That was such a good idea to choose pages that would suggest the focal point. Well done! nancy
