Day 9 of 21 Day Creative Exercise - Arty Girls Challenge and some fun ...

Hi Everyone...

Thanks for popping by...Today's theme on the Arty Girlz Challenge blog is "3D" so I created a freehand cut out of a tree...then used Foam tape to give it dimension...I did it all in white to get the full focus on the 3D effect....

I also did a quick ink sketch of a tree with some love birds...

I also added a wonderful ATC that I got in the mail from Lisa Griffin...what a pleasant surprise that was...You have to pop by her blog to check out her amazing art...I pop by daily to see all the wonderful things she creates....

Have a wonderful day and please pop by again to see what I am up to...

Cheers,
Diana


ATC from Lisa... she made me a special cupcake!

That tree is fantastic. I love that it is all in white and the shadows it creates when photographed. Very nice idea that was executed extremely well.
Thanks for sharing, and I am so glad you are happy with your "Sweet" ATC.

Hi, Diana!

Your 3D tree is intricate and beautiful. Love your sketch of the tree and love birds too. I wish I could say "quick sketch" and have my work turn out as good as yours. ;-D

The ATC from Lisa is wonderful. She's a great artist and nice person too. I think the "Sweet" on the cupcake ATC describes three things: the cupcake, Lisa and YOU. ;-D
