Dinosuar Artist Trading Cards

These are some dinosaur artist trading cards I made for a swap on a Yahoo group. I used ink, acrylic and watercolor. This is the first time I went out of my comfort zone to draw and paint something I normally would not have wanted to or felt comfortable doing. I am happy with the results.

Vintage Clown

Vintage Clown artist trading card made using color pencils.

Circus Boy artist trading card

This is one of my more recent artist trading cards. It is a collage using the vaseline (petroleum jelly) resist technique and acrylic paints. I call it "Circus Boy".

More Paper Dolls

Yes, I have made another two paper dolls :) These were made for a private ATC swap. I trade with this particular person frequent. She does some wonderful origami ATCs! The names of these paper dolls are Vintage Star and Lil' Babushka. Lil' Babushka is a collage doll that I make on an artist trading card by cutting out a dress shape, a head wrap and then drawing in the legs, arms and face, but here I actually made her into an ATC size paper doll. Both paper dolls have moveable arms, legs, and heads.
