ATC's & ACEO's finally got to scan them

I finally got around to scanning some of the cards that have been sitting on my desk for a while.

Perfectly Blessed
I really liked this image. It was hidden in a stack of old decoupage papers I bought from a flea market years ago - so I decided to put her to good use. I thought she looked so calm and serene - and perfectly blessed. The background is hand painted, with an alcohol ink overlay. There is a few hand doodles and rub-ons, along with vintage book text.


I don't know why I used the word 'perfect' as this card certainly isn't perfect in my eyes - I do however like the idea of a sideways necklace like that.

In his clear eyes

The background is hand painted, with lots of doodles/scratches, some torn papers & vintage text finish him off. The look in his eyes is one of purpose & he seems to be regal.

Honest Fellows

Are there really such things??

He spoke to me about my soul
I wonder what he said?

For God's sake get me a drink

Me too!! She looks so sad & frustrated - I think she needs the drink!
- Not available to trade -
The text on this one suits me to a T, so I'm going to hang on to her.
Being still
Do you feel the need to be still, it isn't as easy as said though - finding that inner stillness is so hard to achieve. Even with years of meditation I still rarely find that 'stillness' - but when I do, ahh it's blissful - if even for a few minutes.
Maybe I should keep this too?? haha
I totally understand anxiety! The blocking of the eyes on this piece was to symbolise how anxiety sometimes keeps me from seeing things in the right perspective, how anxiety can make me hypervigilant about things, unable to 'see' whats really happening.... I really lose my 'wits' during anxiety attacks!!

My desk looks like a tornado has hit it at the moment. I have about 6 projects on the go, with materials, bits of papers, glues, paints etc all scattered all over it!! It's beginning to pile up around me too, which means I have to get in there and actually 'use' the goodies.. teehee

Too busy right now, but when things are settled and organised with the new store move I will be doing some samples and things for upcoming workshops - that will be more fun than tidying the desk :)

If you are interested in trading with me, please don't hesitate to ask.

They are all available except 'disguises' - I have to keep this one, as it's so me lol !
