These are all so creative! My favorite is the bird with the words "The Queen" written on it because I am also a fellow bird lover. What does ATC stand for?

SharonP said...

I really like all of them, so cool, but my fave is the "Queen" bird. Wonderful work!

Mari Aparicio said...

super, duper absolutely beautiful!!!love all of it especially the one with the children taking a break!!

These are good! I'm partial to the butterfly kids and the birds.

Now I'm going to have to start making these so we can trade!

Jennifer Stumpf said...

sharon, those are super fantastic. it's fun exploring other mediums than jewelry, isn't it? every art form influences another when you start exploring the options and experimenting.... regarding your ATC's, i particularly like the one of the children sitting on the step. it has a lovely dreamy aspect to it and the little clean drops are a wonderful touch. keep up the beautiful work and thanks for sharing it with us!

Jennifer Stumpf said...

sorry, typo. i mean, of course, the little CLEAR drops, not clean drops. for anyone who doesn't know, ATC stands for artist trading card.

Magic journey, bird with crown, children on the step. Oh, I can't choose just one. Sharon, I can see the painter in you surfacing. These are wonderful and it looks like fun. I hope you keep making these. They are magic tiny little works of art.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments, you are making me feel better about these! I really like working on these, like Jen says, the mind just keeps continuing from one medium to another, and I am starting to feel more comfortable....but there is so much I want to learn yet!

BTW, the children in the transfer piece are my sister in law, my husband...he is the one with the upside down tin ashtray on his head as a hat!, his cousin, and a friend...I always loved that photo!

Please start making them Cristi...can't wait!

These are wonderful, Sharon!!! I especially like the one with the bird in the second row! But they are all really great. Give me a chance to pull my act together...

Tammy and Rob said...

Great job Sharon!
I still love the black and white photo, I can see why it is one of your faves. I also like the 1st set with the pretty lady and daisy flowers, beautiful work!!

Doreen said...

These are so cool, Sharon! I especially like the cards with the kids on them. I want to see more!!

Michelle said...

You are doing a fantastic job! I am especially drawn to the bird-themed ones! If you think you like making these now, wait until you starting trading! I'm thinking about hosting an ATC swap through my blog...stay tuned!
hugs, Michelle
PS...Thank you so much for your loyal readership of my blog and all your thoughtful comments! It really means a lot!

Hi Miss S!!!!!

Oh my gosh you have been on one huge amazing wave of a learning curve!! Your progression from timid, unsure, and self conscious to an artist who trusts her own intuitions and is a much more confidant explorer is sooooooooooo awesome to watch Thank you ever so much dear kindred sister for sharing this adventure!! :) It's like watching stopaction photes of a small closed bud become the magnificant and beautiful flower it was always to be!!

Sharon, they are just awesome!!! I just love the birds!

Beth Anderson said...

Amazing! I love them - you have a real talent for the ATCs!

M.M.E. said...

Those are gorgeous! Thanks so much for the comment on my blog. There is nothing more gratifying than hearing that people who aren't related to you like your work. Your own artwork has given me quite a lot of inspiration for my next project. It's time I went back to animals in my pen and ink drawings. thanks! I look forward to watching what else you produce.

TesoriTrovati said...

Goodness...those are really beautiful! I have always wanted to try those. My friend has an art gallery and we would like to start an ATC trading wall. And then enlist cards from all over....but it hasn't happened yet. I am always second guessing myself and I am unable to crank them out so I am frustrated by the process. Your work is beautiful from a beautiful person! Enjoy the day! Erin

diane said...

I am loving ALL of them! Especially the little girl holding the flower =)
Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you =)

sharon said...

Thank you so much Patti, Judy, Beth, Megan, Erin and Diane! This is very new to me, and I am starting to fly with my heart, it's a little scary, but everyone is making me feel very good about it! I would love to trade with someone!

Prairie Emporium said...

Sharon, they are all so cool, you have really been creative. I wish I had some made I would trade with you.

Cindy said...

Sharon,
I'm just blown away by the creativity and beauty in your new ATCs! You are so talented in many ways. I can't wait to look at them each again more closely. And let me know when you want to trade, and if you're open to non-ATC trades for the ATC challenged! :-)
