As a follow-up to our Spring Fling swap, I thought it might be fun to doodle some bugs or insects. Just about everyone has a favorite little critter of some kind...butterflies, ladybugs, mantis, bees... etc   Let's get creative and share our favorites. Your choice of style(whimsical or realistic) and materials.

Create 2 regulation sized atcs each for 2 partners(total of 4 ). Sign up deadline is April 7 and partners will be posted April 9. ATCs should be mailed no later than April 29. How to participate:  https://theartcolony.ning.com/group/atcs/page/how-to-participate-in...

These are the wonderful bugs I received from Dabau and Debra! Debra's are the beautiful tangled watercolors. Dabau also tangled with her gorgeous little bugs, excellent detail! The background has a lovely sheen to it, what did you use? 

Hi Stacey, I think the background is possibly mono printing, not sure as I did them a long time ago.  

Liz and Debra's atc's were waiting for me when I got back a few days ago, finally able to put them up - I've had problems with my laptop, hopefully all will go well this morning.  Debra's two form a diptych.  Thank you very much Liz and Debra, love them all, (and the papers, they will come in handy :)

Soooo neat!!

Finally getting around to post the cards I got from Stacy! Thank you so much they really brightened my day when I found them in my mail box! Wonderful!

You are Welcome Debra! I've been looking for a way to use my random collection of paint samples I've collected and yes it's perfect! so many colors and uses! The metallic samples are from lowes if you are looking for more!

These are the insects I received from Liz! They are so cute! She also sent me some paint samples which I thought was extremely creative - I would never have thought how much you can do with these, especially for small things like ATCs! Thanks Liz! : )
