ATC challenge swap #18, purple and yellow

A very quick posting for February's swap will bring this blog up to-date. As with last month a slightly disappointing entry for this period, but I am still hoping that it will catch on within the group which has a numberof fabulous artists involved in various projects. I guess we are competing against a large number of well established trading groups. Even the best and most prolific of us sometimes have trouble creating art meeting all the commitments that we take on.

Anyway, here are the entries for the february challenge (#18) with a theme of purple and yellow.

from Cynthia Stevens

from Jean R Roman

from John Dyhouse (see Making ATC's by John)

from Lydia Hildebrandt

from Melanie Price

from Teresa Hall

The next challenge has been set on the group site at Paper Digital Art And Imagesbykim, it will be a theme around the colours green and yellow to reflect the coming spring.

First challenge of the new year

Yes it is MArch already but I have a little catching up to do. This post covers the January challenge, with a theme of coffee. This was left open for the artist to interpret the theme as they saw fit or indeed as they wanted to. Six entries this month, a very small percentage of the members, but again I think the general standard is very high. It sometimes feels a little lonely running a challenge every month but the entries We do receive make it all worth while. If you are interested in joining in with a no pressure challenge wherein your trading partner is selected at random then why not mosey on over to PDA and give us a once over.  That wait to find out which card you are getting can be exhilerating or maybe you are a relaxed individudal who could just wait and see?

Anyway here are the entries in no particular order:-

by Melanie

All entries receive a collage sheet as a small thank you for entering the challenge. I awarded a prize for my own personal favourite to Melanie, for a very simple but effective idea which used the theme so very well.

Keep creating and I will be posting the results of the next challenge very soon.
