Make It Mondays - Spring
This week's Make It Mondays theme is Spring, who is being very fickle about arriving in Wisconsin. We had temps up into the 60sF, and then the wind came out of the north, and we woke up this morning once more in the frozen teens.
So here's a wishful ATC using a purple paint chip and one of the less naughty ladies from the Ten Two Studios Nudie Cuties collage set (and I wonder what sort of hits those words are going to bring this blog :D) I happened to buy a box of fun letter stickers for class use, and the background image is from the cover of a Tiffany postage stamp booklet.
This ATC is for my class sample board. I'm teaching an "Intro to Artist Trading Cards" workshop for Alverno College's Telesis program in April (and amazingly the class is already full :). The hard part about making samples is that they have to be somewhat enticing to make people want to do the class, and not so complex as to intimidate, but also not so simple that they think, "Well, heck, my kid can do that." I'm not entirely sure where this one stands!
And let's hope this spring arrives with less snow than Spring 2008 did!
