I created these bird atc's for Artchix "Royal Bird " ATC swap!! What could be more fun for me than birds?! But I must say it was a lot harder than I thought to keep the theme consistent with the 6 pieces, and actually they did not turn out at all liked I had wished, so I am a bit sad about that, but I had to go with it rather than a re-do. I still need to work on different techniques for backgrounds, that is what gives me the hardest challenge. I've been spending a lot of time trying new things, seems a lot of wasting time sometimes, although I know I am learning...but I still haven't found that look I love yet. These were done on scrapbook papers, ( I loooove papers!) and then I highlighted them with a white gel pen , and enhanced the color with Sennelier pastels, which have soooo much pigment in them, my fingers still have traces of stains.
Then I used Artchix Birds on a Wire collage sheet, and the crowns from the Royal ATC's sheet.
Can't wait to swap these with the other talented artists there! I think I'm taking a Slooooow Sunday tomorrow!!
