Creative Researcher Of New Experiences

Thursday, August 12, 2010


Hello Everyone.

It is extremely hot and humid here in my little corner of the Midwest with no relief in sight for awhile. I figured that was a good reason to stay inside and play.

I entered the ATC Swap over at Blissfull ATC Swap blog and our theme for this swap was orange.

Since my partner Patti over at Treasure Barn has received her card and posted it - I figured it was safe for me to share as well.

I started out by making an orange card to slip my ATC in and act as its travel companion, on it long trip to Patti's house. What do you think?

Well as you know I am a bit weird sometimes on how I go about deciding what I should do for a piece. So I decided to base my creation on the psychology of colors. For orange they say that "it is the most flamboyant color on the planet. It is the color most tied to fun times, happy and energetic days." Thus I found the inspiration for my title Looking for orange in all the fun places.

These little cards (standard ATC size) are a bit more difficult for me with my painful hands and old eyes, LOL - but I managed.

Here are my two companions side by side and ready for their trip across the country.

Well back to my creating - I'm working on about five different projects as I type.

Have a great day every one and stay cool.

Wow these are both great and so different from each other. I think that is what I enjoy the most about the swaps. How every one sees the same theme differently. We are having a contest on the ATC swap blog check it out when you get a chance.
