    Ok, I have gotten permission from the cat to work on this, but not yet. But it occurred to me--I should have done this sooner--that it might help to see some examples. So here are a few from my gallery.

    I made this first one, playing off the idea of a really big altered playing card:



    With all of these, including the one above, you can see images too big for atcs.





    This is found poetry:



    I found these cat and dog images on napkins (again, too big for atcs) and I had some fun cutting up text from large-print romance novels.





    There are more in my gallery and I'll be off to the studio in a few minutes.

    Great examples! Lunch time here... I want to leave work and go play! I do have some cardboard here that's cut to size. Maybe I'll sketch a couple pieces to paint later.

    Responsibilities are a pain. My childhood BFF and I tease each other about how much we wanted to be adults. It was one of our worse ideas.

    I didn't mention this, but my muse and I haven't been speaking. Luckily she turned up.

    Come play. That's all this is. Don't make it harder than that.

    Hey Cynthia! Great tip ins!

    I have some I started in SeARTle in 2016-ish? If I can find them I'll try to finish them up for trade.

    ive been dying to do some good old fashioned sketching but ive been too terrified to actually start. maybe, since i cant really do a lot of painting and gluing right now due to my sewing project, i should bite the bullet and get sketching. ill let you know if i end up with anything worth showing, let alone trading!

    Wow, Nightowl--that was just spontaneous? Beautiful!

    I've only seen/traded hd/hp tipins so far, so it's fun to see the collage tipins. I really like how you can use bigger components in the collages at this size.

    KE, we need to see some digital!!! I'm hoping for some of your flower Closeups :-)

    Oh goodness! CYNTHIA - I'm loving the black and white! DESIGN49...coffee? oh yes! And NIGHTOWL - what a gorgeous bird! What a great creative start for this a-thon.

    After a regular work day, then taking grandgirl to visit her great grandparents, I managed to paint ONE 4x6. Mixed media with a corrugated cardboard base, oil pastels, washi tape, acrylic paints, pencil and ballpoint pen. - I've mostly been doing watercolor lately so it was really fun to have the acrylics out to play!
