The decos just keep coming. :-)

Today I completed the Big Trucks deco. I focused on images from Route 66. Lots of vintage/classic images. It is definitely bright and colorful.

I also worked on the Vintage Children deco. This is more of my style. I had a blast using my rubber stamps of old photographs.

I need to send a letter to a friend so I decided to include an ATC as well. I hope she likes it.
I just finished working on a challenge from the Art_on_A_Budget yahoo group. The challenge is to make 3 ATCs from junk mail. This was really a "challenge" because we don't receive junk mail. Yep, poor me. LOL

I ended up using some mailers and catalogs that I get on a regular basis. DH wanted me to use his computer parts catalog but that left me totally uninspired LOL

I worked on a deco today called Body Parts. I struggled yesterday with what part to focus on. Nothing was really jumping out at me. Early this morning I awoke with the idea of using noses....famous noses. So I scoured the net and found pics of famous noses. LOL

I experimented with color pics, color/printed backgrounds and finally settled on simple black and white. It seemed to let the focus be completely on the subject matter. I also cropped the pictures so that a little of the face is still seen. Just the nose looked gross to me. :-)

Finally I am back to my art desk. DH has been sick for a week and that left me with no time to create. He felt fairly good today so I shoved him and son out the door. LOL

I spent the morning working on the March Rolodex swap cards. The theme is April in Paris.

At work this week they gave us a journal so we could write down our thoughts and feelings. Guess they don't know what happens when you hand an artist a journal and tell them to put in it anything they want. :-)

I have started by altering the cover. No one will ever mistake my journal for their own. LOL
