I took a mini-vacation to the beach last month and that trip inspired my ATC's. I thought how fun would it be to see a glamorous octopus or even a mermaid in the ocean! Of course, I saw neither but that didn't mean I couldn't bring them to life in a drawing. Here are my ATC's I sent Sonia:
The first one was a drawing using a combination of Letraset water soluble markers, Primsacolor pencils (love them!), and Stickles Glitter glue...titled "Sassy Octopus."
Isn't she the cutest?! I glittered her red lips and matching tube of lipstick. After I took her picture and sent her in the mail I kept thinking she was missing something. I should have added a mini pearl necklace or something! Oh well, I'm still happy with the way she turned out.
My second ATC was a drawing using Prismacolor pencils (my ultimate fav!) along with Copic Spica Glitter Pens (very fun to work with), and Stickles glitter glue. Hey, what can I say?? I like sparkly things! This one is titled, "Bubbles."
I thought how quirky would it be to see a mermaid in the water with a bar of soap surrounded in bubbles? For the bubbles I used Stickles glitter glue in a clear white glitter then after the glitter dried I went over it with the Copic Spica Glitter Pens. The mermaids tail also shimmers with the different colors of Stickles glitter I added.
As in any ATC swap, etiquette states that you can not publicly post your ATC's online until your swap partner receives them. Since my partner recently received them I can post them.
So leave me comments or send me an email and let me know what you think.
Until next time!
