Projects are coming together!

Working on multiple things this weekend has been a challenge.  I had some doubts that anything was going to come together for a while but with a couple of them done and one looking good despite a few moments of panic...I think its been a good weekend.

It was so great to take part in another Art-a-thon with some of my AFA friends and some new ones.  It took me most of the weekend to get into the groove of making ATCs again but once I got going I was able to put some things together that I was happy with...and I got to make some great trades too!

here are just a few of the ones i made for trade.

I also finished an altered envelope for a monthly trade.  It didnt turn out at all as I first intended but I'm really happy with the direction it ended up taking.



and last but certainly not main project.  I took the next step with it...and absolutely hated it!  I wanted to cry!  I've been taught by friends and artists I really admire that if you make a mistake...put on another layer...keep going until you reach a point where you like it again.  I didn't know if I'd get there and I'm still a little sad that it wont be what I first envisioned but I'm happy with it again and ready to keep going on it.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on it or on any of these.
