Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Just Playing Around

This ATC is for:

Digital Tuesday, Heart to Heart

I found the Joker digital image and went on from there. I don't
know what made me think of doing this crayon background. But I remember
doing it in grade school. I got out my crayons and colored splotches of color
on my ATC background piece. Went over it all with black crayon and then
scratched doodles thru the black. Uhm.....I think that is playful.
The rest of the coloring is done with gel pen. I also added bag netting and gems.
The three blue gems are juggling balls, if you squint, that is.

I did this for the Small World of Inchies & Twinchies, Circles.
I saw this cute circle face stamp when I was doing a burst of
organizing the other day. I stamped the image 3 times on golden
beige card stock in black. I cut out the circles and arranged them
on a scrap left from stamping them. Distressed it a little with black and then
added the title strip and a couple of stars.
Nancy is feeling the frustration of hosting a challenge and not
getting many players. This is a really fun blog and Nancy is
very nice. I hope you visit and have fun making inchies.
