Intro: my first ATC swap!!! I participated in the BEES Knees Swap on ATCsForAll and created 3 ATCs - as required.
What I created: The theme was bees... there has to be at least one bee on the card and the media is unlimited. As long as the card can fit in a penny sleeve it works! I wanted to create something childish so for one of the cards I created a "pop art" type of background with greens and yellows. Then I painted small bees scattered around on the card. I even went in and added pathlines for the bees to give it more of a childish look.
For the other two cards I wanted to actually spend some time painting an actual bee...and in a way get comfortable with the shape and form of a bee. All three ATCs were created by first painting in watercolor then adding on details where needed with Prismacolor Colored pencils and Le Pen fine tip marker. I have a link to my ATCsForAll gallery as well as my DeviantArt gallery in the Author section of my blog as buttons. Feel free to browse.
I used to be a digital artist but switched back to traditional art as I feel more connected with the art I create this way. Currently, I create art whenever I can for art trades and commissions. I have worked with clay (earth clay to modern forms like Polymer, Sculpey, even Air Dry clay) along with watercolors, acrylics, oil paints, pastels, charcoal, pen and pencil drawings, India ink, Chinese Colors, wires, felt fabric, yarn, weaving, basket making, and the list goes on and on. I am currently working on exploring nail art, make-up, dress making, scrapbooking, and small canvas art.
