Found Poetry ATC's!! A First For Me!

So I have joined a Found Poetry A-Thon over Memorial Weekend. What is that you ask? It's where you find a page of text from an old book, magazine, anything really, and using only the words on that page, create your own "poetry" from those words. I struggled with the "poem" aspects of it at first, but I think I am getting a knack for it. You be the judge.

Owls In A Different Style

I am going to Oregon in July for a Gathering with fellow ATC artists and I am making various cards that I think some will like. Been in an owl mood again so here are a few recent ones to share.

Meet Cocaine Kate - Yet another Blind Draw Face!

Blind Draw Kate.
Meet Cocaine Kate.
She used to be a well liked soccer mom until she attended her first Rave with an ol' high school friend. Now she spends her days and nights on the streets between China Town and SOHO in search of the next big score. Tragic really, this is why you should NOT do drugs. Let Kate be a lesson to you.

Meet Stan! My Blind Draw Man!

Blind Draw Stan.
Meet Stan.
A lonely, not as successful as he'd like to be, traveling greeting card salesman. He likes spunky women with a sense of humour, and he is fine if they are a little on the "fuller" side. He likes to keep company with the ladies, but he will be the first to admit he is no Casanova. He is looking forward to his blind date with Peggy tonight. OOO-La-La!!

Meet Peggy - My Blind Draw Diva!!

So don't tell my husband but I entered yet another fabulous swap that I am so excited about! This one is about doing Blind Draw faces and then creating a persona and ATC with that as the base of inspiration. What is a Blind Draw? It's where you close your eyes and without looking, try to draw am image. In this case a face. So the first picture is one of the blind draws I did.
within a few moments I knew what I was going to do with her after seeing her for the first time. I then came up with a background personality for her as well.
Meet Peggy.
She is a sassy ol' broad that loves her Stoli martini's, still flirts with the gentlemen, has a wicked sense of humour, and still smokes in public even where no smoking is allowed. In all honesty she is a combination of my mother and me - but don't tell my mom I said that. ;) I can't wait to get started on my next ATC. His name is Stan and he is a salesman with a comb-over that would make Donald Trump jealous!!
