Steampunk Swap

Standard

ImageImageImage

I really like the steampunk aesthetic, but i had a real brain block when it came time for this swap. These are a tryptic. I made a larger drawing and then cut it into 3 ATC’s. i used metallic markers on these. It was al little tricky because the colors I liked were wide. I also used gel pens for the metallic effect. It all came out darker than I liked, but since these were my 4th attempt to come up with something, I just didn’t have time to re-do them. I think they came out alright. I just felt like I could have done better if I had an extra month or two!

Fairy Postcard Swap

We had a postcard swap this month. This is a 4×6 piece of card stock. This fairy ended up having a pensive look, but I guess that is OK. I just hope the recipient liked it. Once again, I used markers and micron pens. I used the aqua brush and blending pen with this one.

 

Heart Pennants

I made these for a swap with the ZIA group I am in. It took me a while to get inspired to start them, but once I started making them, I didn’t want to stop.  These are made on card stock with pencil, micron pen, markers, watercolors,and a little gel pen here and there.

Matryoshka Swap paisley

Standard

I made this on 2 1/2  x 3 1/2 Bristol board with pencil, micron pen, and gel pens. I had to go over this one three times to get the colors I liked. I am happy with it now. This is Joni’s favorite.

For FAce to Face ATC Swap. I used a picture of myself when I was 4 or 5. I drew the tangles around it in micron pen, and colored it with markers and water-color.
