Inspire Me Thursday~ATC

I'm a bit late on posting this week...but thought I'd share these anyway. The first one I did a week or so ago when the theme for Illustration Friday (I think?) was ABC's. I constructed a poem using the letter's in the alphabet in order, as the first letter in the word. I don't think the poem is all that good...but it was fun to try. I suppose it has a name, doing that, but it escapes me if it does.

The second one I just did today. I've been working on a 12"x12" painting where I'm using an old pillowcase wrapped around a canvas board that I'm not done with yet. For this ATC I took another scrap of that pillow case and wrapped it around a piece of watercolor paper and glued it to it with some molding gel glaze stuff. Then I painted it with acrylics.


"abc's"


"whistling in the wind"

Great ATCs! I especially like "abcs." It reminds me of a book called Ella Minnow Pea. Very clever!

Whistling in the Wind is SO pretty...the colors are soft, but not asleep!

I love both pieces....Inspired to try my hand at the ABC writing prompt..and love the whistling in the wind...you can feel the movement...

I agree with the post above me you really can feel the movement seems like it would be a soft wind filled with the fragance of the flowers. I love the colors you used, you made the primary's so soft too. Well done! kt
