As a member of the closed Colour Groupies yahoo group, i make ATCs on a color-combo theme to send to the other members of the group every month. For January 2010 (our 3rd year, unbelievable!) our color combination was Aqua & Royal Blue. We were still living in our temporary cottage at the time and i had limited supplies, but i did have my sewing machine! So i scrounged around for items that would fit the theme and came up with various fabrics, threads and a left over royal blue transparency from ARTchix Studio.com. Here are all four ATCs that i made -click on the photo for more detail.
The scan at the top shows the truest color & detail, that is the one i kept for my own collection and was able to scan. The others were photographed only, before being sent off. Now everyone has received them (we miss you, Tristan!) and i can share them. i am already thinking of my black and red combo for February!
The backs are watercolor paper - I glued the fabric fronts to the back after doing all the stitching! lenna young andrews - february 1, 2010
