bold and beautiful!

Here is my entry for the September 2nd ARTchix Studio yahoo group bi-weekly Lotto! Now I will cross my fingers, say a prayer & hope i win . . . but if I don't, making this ATC was still a blast! An ATC ~ artist trading card, measures 2.5" x 3.5" no matter how big it appears here! I took a watercolor card (nicely already cut to size) and attached an image from the Pretty Bird collage sheet that is very bold and beautiful! I used a small circle punch to punch out the two thought bubbles, "spread your wings" and "sing to me". I applied watercolor crayons in purple, red, yellow and blue directly to the bird image and also around the edge of the watercolor card. Next I used a white rolling ball pen and a black fine tip permanent marker to add lines and accents to the pretty bird. The words "expressing strong feeling" come from Helga's Tell me a Story collage sheet and were just what i wanted to say - strong and bold, and full of feeling.
I do hope you enjoy ~ lenna young andrews, august 30th, 2009.
