ATCs, mixed media

Some art from this week.

1. Pink and blue kitty

2. primitive love

3. beloved

4. Adele Blanc-Sec, art journal page

My Kitten:Susie

Photos 1-3: I signed up for an ATC swap, so I thought I'd do some practice to get back into making miniature art.  I haven't made small pieces like this for about a year.  It takes a while to get used to it again.

These may or may not go into the swap.  I often swap pieces on atcsforall, which is an international swap site.... but this new swap is on facebook, and it is a UK closed group.  

I try also to post most of my previous ATCs on my pinterest board so that I keep a record of swapped pieces.


Photo 4.  Art Journal spread, The incredible adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec.  

This spread was for the 30 day journal challenge, which I am way behind with now!  The prompt was to do a page about a heroine you like from film, books, or other media.  I chose a film character: Adele Blanc-Sec.  I watched the film on Amazon and I loved her wacky whimsical style.  She was a French Victorian era Indiana Jones.  I liked that she travelled the world looking for artefacts and adventures.

Photos of my cat.  Susie must have been a model in a past life, she loves to pose for the camera!

Have a lovely weekend, all.
