pomegranate and plum

For Caryl . . . 
These are probably the most quirky ATCs I have ever made! I was thinking about pomegranate and plum for a while before I got started making these and so, I collected things . . . you could say that these ATCs for the Colour Groupies are very recycled! I used paint chip samples from the Hardware store as a base, along with color copies of a label from my new favorite pomegranate yogurt, photos of my toenails painted a pom shade, a photo of a plum I was eating and a transparency print of something I found on the beach: a Sea Plume, wow. These ATCs are weird!

labels I saved and used

Sea Plume

the backs looked like this . . . 

For Frieda . . . I added a bit of embossing powder too that is very old, I guess I am recycling  that too!!

My swap-mates were very gracious receiving these strange ATCs - I told them, "I had some ideas and played them out, but they are just not pretty per say, I'm warning you! Just me working on that color combo and some things I wanted to try. I hope you look at them for a minute and then I don't even care if you toss them!! I thought about doing them over, but then said to myself; I cannot like everything I make!"

-So there you have the saga of  my April color combo for colour groupies!
