Psychosis Haunting Apparitions ATC

Today it's time for something a little different and this ATC is definitely all that.

The main focal point for this ATC is named Psychosis and she is anything but demure and has a quality that seems to draw your gaze in a way that is hard to look away. She is one of my own original digital designs from my  Haunting Apparitions Collection

Psychosis has been colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless turpentine although most of the color comes from the harvest yellow card stock it was printed on.



The sentiment used is also one of my own original designs and sayings and is part of my Halloween, Goth and Macabre Sentiment Collection.

The background is part of a recycled greeting card and the colors are a prefect match for this ATC and I love the raised texture.

Psychosis is playing in the following challenges:
Art With No Boundaries ... Anything Goes
Haunted Design House ...  HDH130 - Eye Can See You ... Psychosis just seemed to be made for this challenge. She is just a bit Haunted and her eyes follow you wherever you go.

Akiko Autumn ATC

All our snow has finally melted here in British Columbia, Canada and it is beginning to look alot like spring and though the lovely pastel colors in this ATC were just perfect to depict this time of year.

The main focal point for this ATC is the charming  and sweet Akiko / Autumn  who is one of my own original digital designs from my Darlings of the Orient Collection,

Who wouldn't want pink hair? Akiko has been colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless turpentine.

To create the rest of the elements on my ATC, I used a piece with a bit of Asian printing from an old computer from an old computer catalog,, a paper doily, a flower punch as well as my Silhouette Digital cutter to cut the pale lime scroll.
