Oh, I've been drawing -- kinda, sorta -- when I do my she-art canvases and notebook covers. But Babushka Girl is totally drawn by my own working hand, rather than collaged in bits and pieces. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE collaged bits and pieces, but this was a challenge I issued to myself. Something that was on my creative bucket list.
It feels good to be in charge of me.
And I am particularly fond of Babushka Girl for obvious reasons. She's my first. She's got a mom memory attached to her. And, well, she's just got a cute personality. She's got postive energy. She's an encourager. And, she's flying a balloon -- symbolic to me. Fly. It's a pretty good word too.
Taking Flight. That's me!
Recently, I discovered an online ATC community that I'd like to share with you. ATC's For All is fun! I've never been much of an ATC girl, and truth be told, I'm finding it challenging to create stuff in such a small space! But that's the point, isn't it? I don't want to go all weirdsville into the ATC world. I do want to do MY art in MY style (ever evolving as it is) and that is what I hope to do on my ATCs.
Taking Flight. Yep, that's me!
