I took an Artists Trading Card class last Saturday. I made 4 cards. Two of the cards already had watercolor painting on the background and another I had stamped the background with silver paint. I also used that silver paint with corrigated cardboard and put on one side of that same card (right middle) along with cutouts from a magazine. The top card has a doll house cutout and a lady dreamily looking at it. I also cut up another watercolor card and pasted it. I had never collaged ATC/ACEO's before. It was interesting and fun. We all just did whatever we wanted with what the teacher brought to class. The lower right is not my card. I only made the 4 you can see all of above.
The Paint Party Friday artists have given me so much information and confidence to try new and exciting art that I have never thought of before. Please go and see for yourself this great project of Eva and Kristin's.

I know it's the middle of winter, but doesn't this look tempting for next summer? I cannot stop drawing and painting these cottages. I used Faber-Castell PITT artists brushes.
Check out the other artists on Paint Party Friday. They all have a lot of advice and tips.

As my art professor would say; 'Practice, Practice, Practice.
Exactly what I need to do to get this guy right.
But that's what I am doing. . . .I wanted to show a WIP . . . the picture is not quite right.
This is a pencil drawing. He's a bit too somber and looks too much older than he is in real life.
Please take a look at all the talented artists on Paint Party Friday. Each week we all come up with a different piece of art and it is exciting and interesting.
