"Art Journal Page 3" for Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #186: Season of Fall or Fall Colors

With the Season of Fall,
the color Orange comes to mind and
comes the other colors associated with Autumn.

I worked and opened my Art Journal,
going on with page 3.

I worked with inks, pens, mediums and the fabulous
"Lisbeth Autumn Taste" digital image by Milk Coffee.

I had a huge owl stamped on the lower left corner of the page &the digital image fits on the far lower right side of the same page.

I compiled numerous famous Autumns Season quotes, handwritten all over my Fall or Autumn page:


Randomly drawn winner gets digital images from Milk Coffee.

. . . a set of ATCs received thru atcsforall

Hello!

I'm back with another set of ATCs photos
to share with you.

I just received them yesterday morning (Aug. 23, 2013) and
was surprised at the artwork details
on each ATCs of my trading partner.

Here they are:
 5 Original ATCs from Annette Kinn
some are Zentangle . . . or most are. . . 



 I think I forgot to take a photo of the ATCs
I sent over to Annette.

I sent in 7 ATCs for her 5 ATCs.
She allowed me to choose among my ATCs
to surprise her with a good set in exchange for hers.

Counting the days to receive my 1st set of ATCs
from a swap.  I would usually go for private trades and
this coming week is the 1st I'd be receiving from
an international swap at atcsforall. =)

"Thomas Moore" Card Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #185: With a Quote or Song

I worked on a theme of "Say it With a Quote or Song".

I created a handmade card apt for a challenge and
I was thankful on finding a bookmark in my stash
courtesy of Yellow Violet House containing a quote sticker
in the middle of the bookmark.

I just snipped the portion with the quote and had it adhered
on my handmade card.
 It went well with the sponsored digital image by QKR Stampede which
I colored with my Faber Castell pens.

The quote is from Thomas Moore.
I hope the quote is visible from the photo of the card below. . .
 

Randomly drawn winner get 5 digis from QKR Stampede.

"I Love School" Digital Artist Trading Card for Sunny Side Up Creations

Hello, everyone!

Sorry on the delay on posting
with Word Art Challenge:  LAUGH

Here's a digital Artist Trading Card project
for Week #33 SSUC Challenge:


Digital Credits:
School Days Digital Kit by Crescent Moon Designs
Laugh Word Art by Sunny Side Up Creations

I love going to school when I was still young up until
my college days.  My Masteral days started somewhat
difficult for me but I was able to manage from the middle
until the end of my Masteral days . . . It did take my quite
a while to finish with work in the way and several
work and personal issues.

After, that I plunged into language studies with apprehensions
and I ended up not finishing until the end
to getting the DALF and DELF.
I'm just glad to have done the all the beginner's sessions
for a Certificate Titular.

I tried again with computer studies starting with a beginner's
short course and that was the time that I realize that
I had it with studying and never again.

I guess my Digital ATC can be seen to depict
2 emotions:  1 of happy studying memories when
I was still young and to my bitter and sarcastic memories
when I was already way beyond taking
degree courses for further studies. {sigh}


Here's the Word Art the SSUC DT worked with:


Much Regards,


. . . a good set of ATCs received from the USA
