I beleive art is healing.when I draw I relax. I'm happy when a doodle is finished.Then I start a new one.no frustrations.this active relax recently is my main summer "spare-time"activity.Just pencils and paper.Taken everywhere.

collaborative cards

most of you dear followers already know Black Pumpkin over at TimlessRituals,we love her art ,we already know her addiction to ATC's and now i also already know that it can be contagious,lol...

i've met this abbrevation (ATC)about 6 months ago,checked it out but i didn't paid to much attention...untill Pumpkin made my fancy them. seeing her beautiful, funny,cute,obsessive little cards.
yet i was a bit surprised when i cutted them (6.4/8.9cm) i thought they were a bit bigger :)...

this and seeing another flickr friend's collaborative drawing with his son caught me in..
i always loved kids drawing,now my eldest son (almost 7)is showing his talent ...i'm amazed how easily he drew them (the monsters i've asked to ) and i can't tell you how fun it was completing the cards.we've made them on heavy glossy paper,using markers and pen.now i just wonder if i could seal them somehow. when i go out i plan to buy a copic marker (so we can draw on acrylics too) i just hope to find it in our art shop.i'm not familiarized to buy form the net.
untill then i hope to comlpete a few cards in these days as he has already drew them :)
ideeas flows further i will tell you later about ,now i present our first cards -9atc sized except the first one which is a bit bigger)

see you ;)

ps-thank you again BlackPumpkin for the inspiration!

recent m-am indragostit de atc-uri,a fost mai greu cu acceptarea dimensiunii standard de 6.4/8.9 cm,dar acum suntem pe roti...colaboram impreuna cu fiul meu cel mare de aproape 7 ani si ne distram de minune (mai mult eu).vom incepe in curand sa schimbam aceste card-uri cu prietenii, cunoscutii nostrii si straini din toate colturile lumii.

    thank you!

  3. The screaming monster in headphones with the green sides with blue stripes and yellow circles rocks my socks - it looks like my 21 year old son when he performs "Scream-o"! I'll trade for this one!!!! And you can seal virtually all media with spray fixatif (art supply store).

  4. i'll reserve it for you Christinne! ;)
    i tried to varnish the paper but it remained sticky .so i will have to try that spray.maybe it will work...
