a couple ATCs




After doing SO many canvases the past couple months its been very hard for me to get back into stamping.... Not to mention my art table has been in total disarray. I am sure that has alot to do with my enthusiasm. Today I started cleaning off my art table and finding homes for stuff (and btw I just have wayyyyyy too much stuff and a small home so its very hard sometimes to find homes for things!). I have also been trying to re-energize so have been doing lots of resting and being a couch potato. But, I think I needed it. I have felt partly guilty for not doing something everyday (which I truly believe in) but I also realized that it is GOOD to take a breather and recharge our batteries!
I forced myself to do some ATC's today and once I got going it felt REALLY good.
Stamps and collage image used here are from Inkastamps!
Backgrounds were done using oil pastels and gesso.

Kristy, there is nothing wrong in taking some time for yourself and spending it however you want, even as a couch potato.

I like your ATCs because you do such awesome backgrounds to set off your images.

Kristy, These ATCs are wonderful! And I totally agree with you. I think periodically we need breaks to re-charge our creative batteries. So be a "potato" as long as you need to. :-) But, if you start growing "eyes", then it's time to get moving!! LOL!!!
