I think the most color I've ever applied to a project was to a series of dominoes. So here are my ravens as part of the color challenge posed by the Crazy Amigo Challenge.

Coffee is the TMTA challenge this week. A good Monday theme as Monday is usually the day of coffee bucket - not mug o' coffee, bucket o' coffee. So I pulled out my old, dusty copy of Bernie Berlin's FANTASTIC book, Artist Trading Card Workshop, and played this rainy Monday evening. Came up with two ATCs that use the Mica method outlined on p. 94. Be sure to check out her equally fantastic blog. She has me wanting to take a day off to go and look for heart-shaped rocks. :) Collage images from ArtChix and Altered Pages. Stamps from Oxford Impressions and Inkastamps.

Fall is here and October is just around the corner. Witches are making their way into my artwork on a near daily basis. The Wednesday Stamper challenge this week is patterns. I'm honoring this with a lovely harlequin background and numberous witchy creations as of late. Collage images from Collagevisions.

It's such a challenge to have just ONE favorite movie when there are so many to choose from. My gothic arch features one favorite movie, Chocolat. I love the Joanne Norris book and even read its sequel this summer, The Lollipop Shoes. I enjoyed getting reacquainted with the main characters. The film is my part of my annual spring equinox rite. Johnny Depp and chocolate is such a heady combination. The red represents the traveling capes worn by Vianne and Anouk. Stamps from Oxford Impressions, Club Scrap, and Johnny was an Ebay find.

This week's TMTA challenge is handwriting. I was also inspired by Cathy to make a tea fairy from some of my Tazo scraps, since she posted two lovely fairies of like origin on the Altered Gypsy forum. Which reminds me, she is hosting a 10/10 Halloween ATC swap, so if you're interested, join us! My scrawled handwriting is found in the margins of this piece. It reads, "Clear your mind...a hot cuppa tea on a rainy day...healing power".
