Drawing versus Collaging!
So, I have been really busy with life and was making collaged ATCs. Then, one day, I decided to "draw" some ATCs and found out that I get a better response for my ATCs when they are hand drawn. The following cards are what I drew and the Mermaid traded right as soon as I posted it.
By the Dock!
I really like how the "By the Dock!" turned out and that it actually ended up looking like a dock. I did a pencil drawing and then colored it in with permanent markers and a silver gel pen for the "nails" in the dock.
The mermaid is the one that traded right away and I was really happy with how she turned out. I did a pencil drawing and then colored it in with permanent markers and glitter gel pens for a totally cool effect on the shells, hair, and tail.
I love to collage as well as draw, so I am astounded that people do not think of collaging as art. It takes me a lot of effort to collage as well as drawing and I really like to do both.
