It is another Artist Trading Card swap month! I just love getting these in the mail!! This month’s theme was “Harvest”. It was a difficult theme for me. I didn’t have anything that screamed harvest to me. And then I thought about what Harvest means. It means (paraphrasing here) “to gather”. One of the best things about the Kelly Rae Robert’s class was the group that I became friends with through Facebook. I never thought of that as an outcome of taking an online class, but that is exactly what happened. And now I am part of several groups with different interests, one of them being the ATC swap group. They are a great group of people, I love hearing their thought, watching their dreams come to fruition, and sometimes we need to lean on each other for advice, either buisness or life related.
Anyway, that is a long winded explanation of how I cam up with my ATC finally for the swap. “Harvest Friends” was the title and since I am not good enough at drawing (espeically on smaller canvases) to draw a group of friends, I used Easy Scraps’ Scroll Pumpkin and Scroll Floral Border stamps. I used colored pencils and ink pads to color and shade.
Why not take an creative class of your own? You never know what friends are out there waiting to be harvested ;-). Visit http://www.CreativeClearinghouse.com to find an online class or review of a class that you might want to take!
Here is the ATC I made:
