Did you Admire Me for my Impertinence?

This is an ATC I did for an ATC swap- I did it for a lady who liked Pride and Prejudice. I used gesso for the background, then used several layers of acrylic paint. After cutting out a black and white picture of Giselle Bundchen (is that the right spelling?), I cut out and glued lace and fabric flowers from an old dress to make an old fashioned bodice.

What I like doing is cutting out flourishes (top right of ATC)- I use a lot of these not only for ATCs but also for my creative journal, scrapbooks, and other art works. It's a quick way of embellishing. I usually bring paper, a pen and a pair of scissors when I know I have to time (at the bank, at the doctor's, any waiting time) and I start snipping away happily and time goes by so fast! I put a lot of flourishes in my "magic book". More on that later!


  1. Nice blog! I'm motivated to do ATCs even if I'm not artistically inclined. Carry on!

  2. You are right - flourishes are great addition to pages and ATCs. I never thought of cutting them out... interesting! Thank you for the comment on my blog. It made me smile. xo

  3. I love your blog, and it is so nice to meet you! Thank you for visiting mine--I will visit again! Have a great weekend, Smiles, Jann

  4. I love the word "impertinence" -- I take it as a compliment1


I am so glad you dropped by! You are a blessing!
