I have been away from this blog for a long time. And in that period I have not been too busy with collage or mixed media art. I have been marking time with the one challenge swap which I run on PDA for Kim Newberg. For this challenge I usually create two cards - not sure why, but it has become traditional - so there it is.
I last published any craft work last February and this means I have between 10 and 12 ATC's which I have not posted on the blog. I will have to catch up slowly. For a number of reasons I am finding that collage is taking a back seat at the moment. I am doing more painting, see Painting with John and learning to play the ukelele, results on You Tube via Guitar Bashin'.
I have also been busy writing poetry, if you are still with me then try Poems and Poetry on Life on which I publish my poems and try to explain away the reasons for their concepetion.
Last of all, I have really developed a fondness for photography and the manipulation of the photographs, I have a great deal of fun with this (Photography for Fun) and so you can probably begin to understand why I find time a very difficult problem when I have to divide my FREE time between these interests. Oh yes, I also love to read and get through a number of novels every month.
But those ATC's, what have I been doing? Here is a quick attempt to catch up with challenges from March and April.
Two matching "Irish ATC's" on the theme of Spring
Duriing this period I have been almost exclusivly using collage with perhaps a little more than paper on occasion for a little change, but only a little. I need to start creating some more cards with the array of techniques that I used for challenges when I was actively trading in groups and creating several every week. I look forward to having mmore free time and getting back to playing around with these techniques. Maybe I should set a them based on some of these techniques rather than subjects. I will think about it.
OK that's all for this post. I hope i will be posting regularly again and keeping you abreast of my crafting/art. I will also be finding more to say than just presenting my newest works.
