a little art therapy for me

Wooeeee, I'm tired of cryin'! Yesterday was the
funeral. I don't know about anybody else, but for
me, it was like every funeral I've ever been to
rolled into one. Today I just slept, did a little
bit of laundry, and played in the art room. And
now dh is rubbing my neck for me and reading over
my shoulder. I love this guy!

It's raining and raining and raining here (which
fits my mood just fine, thank you), so you can
just forget about any of that natural lighting
business for THIS picture.

My Alice In Wonderland atcs for a swap. (Alice is
one of my all time favorites; I have a little bit
of a collection of different Wonderland books.)

These are two Alices I received, the one on the left
from Jill, and the one on the right all the way from
Israel from Michal. I really like Michal's use of
the text from the story.

Finally, for a Door-That-Opens atc, here is one using
an Altered Pages image. The picture was so gorgeous,
I didn't do much to it. (The little doors open up to
some rub-ons, and the word "love" surrounded by gold,
with a little sparkly heart above it.)

Hello Trisha, I am a blogger down under in Australia and also a swapper.

I have no idea how I got to your blog today but I have never made any ATC's and just knew yours would be here so I could have a better understanding just what kind of art they are.......I am going to try and do one for one of the swaps. my swap name is crinolinelady (smiles) I am not that crinoline but collect the vintage china with her on it....anyway I loved visiting you today and my blessings go out to you for your sad loss.

Best wishes Lee-ann

ps sorry I had to delete above I have no idea (again) why the message looked so out of order.

I'm sorry about your Grandpa. Sewing/art has always been the BEST therapy for me too!
Your ATC's are usual!

I like Alice too but I have to admit that Heidi was my favorite. Love the ATC's!
