sharing something OTHER than bad news...a little ART

Here are some recent ATCs that I have made for swaps.

windows swap: the card opens, and I wanted to get as close to the view from my Apt. when living in Center City- Phila, PA for this swap. I used crinkle fabric, and a fancy pin to make a window treatment, a peel-off window over a transparency.

 Inside I used a brick wall stamp, and free doodled some vines, and added a picture (the view) of city hall with William Penn high Atop.  My actual view included city hall but it also included liberty one, liberty two and the PSE&G bldg. At night with all the lights it was a phenomenal view.
Here is a citizen's telling of the legend/myth? of the William Penn on City hall, and the height of bldgs. in Philadelphia.

These are for the Renaissance fair swap. All the girls are from a collage sheet by "Curious by design" called "Victorian Girls"...obviously a misnomer as clearly these are Renn. girls. The backgrounds I choose were from "Dezina World" and "Ceremony Share". the words were on the collage sheet with the girls. They are all elevated on foam tape. I used german scrap, stickles, distress stickles, liquid pearls and crushed velvet flocking (on the kerchief of "Hope"). "Unwavering" I kept for myself, the others were swapped.

I really like your Renaissance fair girls and how you played up the bright colors. Thank you for leaving feedback on my etsy site. I have a hard time convincing people to do so. They leave such nice comments when they Convo me, but just don't get around to doing the Feedback. So, I appreciate that you completed this. I hope your friend liked the brooch. I hope all works out for you and Ron.

I am sorry that you felt like a villian in my story, however, if you notice that Allie is just short for Alicia which is me too. Witchy is my webself and Allie is me too. So that is what has been happening to me in reality and that was how it came out. I do hope that things in your life gets better as I hope they do in mine.
Hugs and sparkles
