ATC Swap -- Fall theme
It's been insane here, as usual. Maybe a little more than usual. I finished a set of ATCs for a swap with a theme of Autumn Voices. I call the ATC "Fall's Fire", because when I think about this season, I think of the look of the trees and how they remind me of fire.
This was done with artist pastels on a good quality watercolor paper. I used Prismacolor NuPastel sticks. There are six or seven colors on it, blended with my fingers because they were the best tool for the job. Robin's Nest dew drops glued on top after I sprayed the ATC with a workable fixative. I have to make an extra for my daughter. She really likes these.
