Christmas/New Year Art Athon


Hi Everyone!  Back in 2011 I was introduced to the site ATC's For All and in December of that year I played along with my very first Art Athon.  Its basically an anything Goes Art Trading Event.  You make art, you admire and get inspired by the art of others, and trade/swap for any that you really love.

It is on again this year so over the past few days I have managed to find a few minutes here and there to create some art to play along with the hope of trading.  Some of this I have traded already whilst others I have only just created so am waiting to see.


Some Moo Cards using Left Over Christmas Collage Images from Altered Pages


Water Color, and News Print Background which has been embossed, and distressed with ink.  
Collage Image and Sentiment to finish.



Black Card embossed and highlighted with White Ink.
Collage and Embellishments to finish.





Water Color and News Print Background, with Stamping and Collage




Masking Tape and my New Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio Mists created the Background which I then highlighted with Black Pen and added the Sentiment, Collage and Die Cut Butterflies.
This ATC I am entering in to a new challenge site I found sometime ago but hadn't had a chance to play along with any of their challenges till now.
Fun with ATC's Challenge - #78 Something New

This year's Christmas/New Year Art-Athon finishes tomorrow at Midnight so I am hoping to find some time to play along some more but don't know if this will eventuate as my sister is due to arrive any minute now for a couple of days and we are taking "A" to see the Hobbit in 3-D at the cinema tomorrow.

So many great pieces, and I love the one you're entering for the Something New challenge... The butterflies are great, especially the one on the grungy background, and I love how you've created the dynamic lines with the masking tape. Thanks for playing along with us at Fun With ATCs!
