more atc's just to prove I am still doing them

Ok, not too many atc's recently but am just catching up on a couple of swaps with these.

ATC; something fishy

The first is called, "something fishy". created for a swap on the Flickr group, "artful ideas" with a theme of under the sea. The background is a layered tissue paper to give a feeling of the sea bed / waves ( underneath the sea?) and I have added images of fish from a collage sheet by Kim Newberg and seaweed cut from an image from a gardening mag. They were garden plants but serve my purpose here - you wouldn't know would you? The smaller fish are swimming in and out of the weeds.

ATC; who's a pretty boy then?

I made this for a swap on PDA with a theme of "floral". I call it, " who's a pretty boy then". My grandfather used to breed budgies and when I was a nipper, we had a succession of budgies as pets. Of course they all had mirror's in their cages and would be taught to repeat the phrase, "who's a pretty boy then". And yes I know these birds are not budgies, LOL. The sunflower image is actually cut from a greeting card sent with a previous swap ( sorry forgotten who sent it to me) and the mirror with the wire frame seemed to fit so perfectly. Had to resort to a hot glue gun to fix it down tho. Browsing thru my stash, flowers were significantly absent but seemed to be lots of birds, so they were made use of. Thanks to Jean Roman for the felt flower. The button was an afterthought to add a little contrast/balance. Larger images can be seen on my Flickr photostream

Thanks for looking, more to come soon.
