Hot Artventures!

This is just a glimpse of the Hot Artventures I was into this past weekend.



Believe it or not, triple digit temperatures had me recently creating an entire set of ABC ATC VERBS! Could it be that I was hallucinating from the heat? Maybe. NO! My friend Soul actually challenged us to create a set of alphabet ATCs featuring verbs. And they were to be completed and sent off by August. Well guess who WAS completing hers in late August? Yes, that would be moi. LOL! I discovered that verbs are easier SAID than displayed on a 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 surface. There I sat with my little dictionary. And there I sat searching for images to go with those action words. And here they are FINALLY heading off to London. Thanks for the challenge, Soul and please, no more verbs. or nouns. or adjectives. or..........

Your alphabet ATCs are great! Insult is so clever....as are many others!

Where are Y and Z?
I think this incredible collection should be submitted for publication at Cloth Paper Scissors magazine. It's amazing, clever, so well done, I could go on and on but you said no more verbs or adjectives...WOW!!!!

What that's a big challenge.
Great cards though. I can't think of anything better to do in EXTREME heat than play in the studio. :)Bea

Soul, I see we're both a big mess when it comes to restraint! LOL! Thanks for the challenge.
Peggy, thank you for dropping by! I was ready to assemble my "Insult" ATC when I decided to change the whole thing at the last minute and I'm glad I did!
Lynn, Y and Z where together on the bottom row that was not captured on the photo. I'll have to get a shot of them before sending them off.
Bea, I was having a stressfull weekend and this was a great way to relieve it. I just threw myself into it and created like mad!
Soul, my day is over and I'm happy to report that I survived my first day back at school!!!! YAY!! LOL!

Mariann, art funks happen to us all. Believe me, one week is not bad. When the mood strikes, you'll be back in the game.

Aha, now I understand. What a challenge. I don't think I could have coped with it. It takes me ages to come up with our ABC/ATCs. My Q is for Soul and I'm rather pleased with it, it's different from what I usually do! Mystery....
