This was created for Bad Penny's
Monthly ATC Challenge,
over at The Linen Shelf.
One ATC a month to show and tell,
the theme being that month.
So the first one is 'January'.

Blended paper background, gessoed,
distressed and slightly inked,
bird image from old book on nature,
pine needles tinted with Distress Ink
and 'frost' added with little sparkles.
Numbers paper tape.
Quote from another old book
(I liked this quote so much for January
that I used it for my January Calendar pages too).
Life Book, Week 1
I'm running about 4 weeks behind on this course,
which isn't bad really, considering!
The first exercise is about
finding my inner Goddess and her positive traits.
I don't know about my inner Goddess,
I think I've unleashed my inner Monster.
With a trout pout.
And wonky eyes.
|(It isn't supposed to look like me anyway......)|
I found this really difficult,
drawing people and faces in particular is tricky for me.
But that's what taking a class is all about, right?
I really enjoyed the challenge though
and will carry on practicing faces.
On the back is a Polaroid style photo
of me, with a paper tape strip of the word
* LOVE *.
I'd better get on with task 2 now.
You never know, I might just catch up
by the end of the year!
