This week's challenge was to create an arch of your favorite movie....of course, for me, it had to be Gone With the Wind. I wanted to try to capture the green velvet/elegant scene of the movie. Please check out all the wonderful submissions this week at: http://gothicarches.ning.com/
This month my guest artist extraordinaire is Laura Van Vleet of Blackbird Creations. Aren't these ATCs adorable! No one does vintage primitive like Laura. She also has a wonderful online store: http://www.blackbird-creations.com/store/Default.asp .....check it out!
http://thisthursday.wordpress.com/ When I saw the challenge, I did not think I'd be doing something from the 1950s, but I found this vintage Pepsi add from 1958 and thought it would be something fun and unique for the challenge. Who knew they did masquerade parties in the 1950s?
http://themethursday.wordpress.com/ This is my submission for this week. I chose to make my 4 X 4 into a card. Please check out the above link to see all the great submissions this week and to join in on the fun!
http://wednesdaystamper.wordpress.com/ This week's challenge was "caps". I found this perturbed little boy with this enormous cap that I thought was precious so I made a row house tag for my submission.
To be considered for membership, you must submit samples of your work to the membership committee for review. Examples would be a link to your art blog, Flickr album or Pinterest art board. Are you an expert ATC artist looking to trade high quality vintage-inspired ATCs? This group may be for you.
