WELL, MY DEARS, TIME FLIES DOESN'T IT? HERE ARE PHOTOS OF ATC'S AND A MIXED MEDIA DOLL ASSEMBLAGE.

I HAVE BEEN CREATING ATC'S FOR A SWAP WITH A FRIEND, AND ALSO A MIXED MEDIA DOLL ASSEMBLAGE SWAP WITH ANOTHER FRIEND.

I HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED THE THREE ATC'S FROM MY FRIEND, AND MAILED HERS OFF AND SHE RECEIVED HERS TOO.

HERE IS ONE OF THE THREE ATC'S I RECEIVED FROM MY FRIEND JUDY.  I ADORE IT!


SORRY THIS IS A LITTLE BIT BLURRED FROM MY CAMERA.  WE CHOSE THE THEME OF 'FOLK ART PRIMITIVE' AND THE ATC'S  WE PAINTED WERE BOTH 'FIRSTS' FOR BOTH OF US.

HERE ARE THE THREE ATC'S MY FRIEND SENT TO ME.  I ADORE THE GIRL WITH HER KITTY.  PLEASE CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR A LARGER VIEW.
HERE ARE ALL THREE OF MINE WHICH WERE SENT TO JUDY.  MORE INDIVIDUAL PHOTOS FOLLOW THIS ONE.

HERE IS ONE OF THREE ATC'S I SENT TO MY FRIEND.  I TRIED FOR A PRIMITIVE GRUNGY STYLE.  I THINK SHE LOOKS LIKE A QUEEN, SO I USED ALPHABET STAMPS ON THE REVERSE SIDE IN BLACK INK TO PRINT THE TITLE OF 'QUEEN'.
I CONTINUED WITH THE PRIMITIVE GRUNGY STYLE AND NAMED THIS ONE 'SHEEP' IN BLACK INK ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE ATC.
AND A BARN.  ALL WERE DRAWN AND PAINTED FREE HAND, OUR OWN IDEAS.




AND I JUST NOTICED THAT I NOW HAVE 300 FOLLOWERS! YAY!
I WILL BE HAVING A GIVEAWAY VERY SOON! PLEASE STAY TUNED.












AND NOW FOR THE FINALE' THE MIXED MEDIA ASSEMBLAGE I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON FOR THREE MONTHS AT HALF HOUR INTERVALS OFF AND ON, FOR ANOTHER YEAR ROUND ORNAMENT SWAP. SHE HAS A BOUFONT HAIR DO, WHICH IS ACTUALLY WOOL ROVING SCULPTURED AND PAINTED WHITE WITH GOLD ACCENTS.  IF YOU VIEW AN OLDER POST OF MINE YOU WILL SEE WHAT WENT INTO THE DOLL WITH THE RAW MATERIALS.  I SEALED THE DOLL WITH KRYLON MATTE FINISH. SHE WILL BE WINGING HER WAY TO DEBI VERY SOON!
HERE IS A CLOSE-UP OF MARIE ANTOINETTE'S FACE. 

HERE IS THE BACKSIDE OF MARIE ANTOINETTE WITH HER HANGER.   THIS WAS NOT THE ENTIRELY FINISHED DOLL AS I PAINTED OVER THE SPLOTCHY BLUE AND PURPLE ON THE SPOOL SO IT WAS ONE SOLID AQUA COLOR.  

Thank you for viewing and remember you can click on each photo for a larger view.

Thank you for coming to visit, dear friend!
You are a fan of Ms. Alcott as well? :)
I just re-read "Little Women" after 30 years...it is such a richer experience to read some books when one is an adult.
She was, indeed, a strong and talented woman...
Enjoy your week!
