ATC 's

This is the first time in what felt like forever that I had the chance to create and play art.  I made 15 atc's in mixed media for Inkwell's (DeDe) Swap.  They have a theme....Christmas colors, red, green and white, Flowers~ poinsettia, heat embossed stamps on card stock. I hope they are well received.

Some of my art.  I have been on an art break and really need to make something soon. If you are an artist then you know what that itch feels like.  I get a kinda nervousness....the foot starts to shake as a bleeder for the bottled up energy....and my art studio is a mess....and I can't stand it that way.  I've been taking supplies and art out to share with my sissy while she is here with me.  I have to organize before I can even think about getting creative.  I have to get in there much to do!

ArteDar's STEAMPUNK art

This is me in the STEAMPUNK outfit I made from thrift store finds carring the Time Travel Log Book and Petey my pet bird. I gave a workshop class for this altered book at the Art For All 2nd ANN. ATC gathering and swapping event in Rochester, New York June 2010. We had a blast....I'll find some pix of the class with the project.

Steampunk art doll I made. Wire armature body, air dry clay head, and hands, green velvet skirt and lace.

My hand drawn sketch cut out and added to a mixed media background of different papers, metal bits, stamping and foil wings with bottle caps at the bottom and word 'FLY'. size 8 X 10, given to a GF as a gift.

This is my Altered Book......I call it my Steampunk Time Travel Machine and Log Book with pet bird Petey.
