I am participating in a couple of upcoming ATC swaps in the Art Techniques Yahoo Group.
I sanded recycled cereal box cardboard and used blue chalk ink along with Brilliance blue ink to color the background. I drew the hanging vines and flowers with a Black Slick Writer pen and the Inkssentials Opaque white pen above Erte’s Sleeping Beauty image. I enjoyed doodling the vines and flowers, creating six ATCs for the swap. I try to always make one to keep. This ATC is fairly simple even tho it involved several steps. I am going to resist the urge to add anything else to it!
“A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness; but still will keep a bower quiet for us, and a sleep full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing…” ~John Keats (English Romantic Poet. 1795-1821)
