The theme for October over at the Blissful ATC Swap was Movie Monsters. - How fun is that for an art theme?
The terrific card above of the ever good looking monster of Frankenstein is the one I received from my partner Jane over at Anything but... Plain Jane Blog. Thank you so much Jane I really Love my New ATC.
I really liked watching Creature Features on Friday Nights and Frankie was always one of my favorite monsters.
To the more modern taste in horror movies - I suppose these were too hokey - but it's what I grew up on and quite frankly I really have a hard time stomaching all the blood and guts stuff that passes for horror now.
One of my other Favorite creatures - growing up - was the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
so that is who I created my ATC about.
I layered different colors & levels of tissue paper for the lagoon, the beach and the land to give my card texture and a bit of depth. I used dots to raise my creature to look as if he was coming out of the lagoon. Added a little moss to give it that Amazon Jungle look. I really thought he came out rather nice. - If I can be so bold to use the term nice and creature all in the same sentence.
Here is the picture of the card I made to accompany my ATC on it's trip. I sure hope Jane liked it.
Well I need to get back to bed - I really am hoping to be better soon - so I can get back to visiting with all of you wonderful friends.
