Winter ATC

“Winter Solitude”
Gocco print, series of 20 ATCs

I had big plans today. Figured I’d get some biscotti baking done and complete some art projects. Little did I realize what kind of work-intensive endeavor one of my art projects was going to be. I’d worked out the layers in Photoshop to print out and then burn my Gocco masters with, but I hadn’t anticipated the length of time it would take to print five layers of masters twenty times. It did turn out pretty cool, though, so I’m going to bed happy. Tomorrow I’ll print the labels and stamp the envelopes and get them out on Monday.

Collage ATCs – Spring

I was up this morning at 5:30, mind brewing with artsy ideas. I’ve been working on my Collage ATCs for a swap that’s due next week, and I’ve completed winter and spring… and have summer and fall left. I’ve begun work on summer, and was anxious to get back to it. I had other ideas brewing overnight on another ATC project, which I must get in the mail today.

Collage ATCs – Winter

I was trying to figure out what it is that I like so much about making these little creations. I decided that because they are themed, the creative process is much easier for me to flow into, and so I can get started on the act of creating. Aside from that, they are such small works that I can get them done before I get bored with them. Yes, I have the attention span of a gnat, and as soon as I get bored, fogeddaboudit… it’s going to sit in an unfinished “to do” heap until I finally decide to “recycle” it. It probably has a lot to do with discipline (or lack of)… or perhaps it has to do with an active mind that constantly renews itself and things become old news pretty quickly. Perhaps a touch of adult ADHD?

While I was quite bright-eyed at 5:30, my cup of coffee doesn’t seem to be doing much for me this morning, and I’m sure that within another hour or so, I’ll be ready for a little nap.
