Gifts in and Gifts out.
I was a naughty girl! I opened my Christmas present from Dot. I did not even try to resist ... And I am so glad that I did not.
Let me introduce Harold, the rooster. I am a big fan of roosters - ummm let me re-phrase. I think I like the image of Roosters; the colours, those glossy feathers, the self confident demeanor, the image... Real roosters, at least the ones I have come in contact with, smell, eat worms and seem to be overly randy.
Oops I have diverted. Dotee also included this fabulous collage, included is a picture of a baby art doll she made for me last month. It is such a personal, made-for-me, collage with words of encouragement and favourite colours included. The card/ATC is a gorgeous work of art in itself.
This is the cover of a miniature ATC file I made recently, a group of us sent ATC's to encourage a friend and I wanted to create a bright and arty file. I have used another of my scrap paint backgrounds, and for the purists - the stamped city (Green Pepper Press)is deliberately sketchy. My 'Lady in Pink' uses a torso and face mould from Krafty Lady. When I look at her I see a 1950's cleaning lady all dressed up for a night on the town - a bit of 'mutton dressed as lamb'. With no offence to cleaning ladies - as mine is the BEST and beautiful.
