ATCs and My New Scanner


This Saturday is ATC (Artist Trading Card) day when I will be trading cards with my fellow ATC-ers in Dunvegan, Ontario. I finished my cards this week and was really pleased to be able to scan them using the new scanner I bought a couple of weeks ago to digitize all my old photographs. Here is one of my cards, which is based on an old photograph of my daughter Sarah sitting in a rocking chair we used to have. I used guache and water colour and felt tip markers to make this card and took a lot of liberties with the colour. Lots of fun to do.

So glad you liked the colours - particularly since it is based on a photo of you (albeit long ago).
