Winged Children ATCs for The Trodden Path

Well, I joined a new cyber art group. It was kind of accidental…an artist I know posted a photo of friend’s work to Facebook, which led me to The Trodden Path. Mostly it is a place to share and learn by taking classes, but it is also social. They recently had an ATC trade called “Winged Children.” I couldn’t resist that. I gathered up my old photos, paper scraps, paints, markers and file of Graphics Fairy and got to work.

The top one is a Graphic Fairy angel.
I changed the face in Photoshop, printed it, cut it out, added color and paint and glued it to a background made from recycled teabags that were stamped and painted. The middle card has Graphic Fairy butterfly wings, the stamped background, and words I try to live by: Love what you do; do what you love. Any guess as to who the little blonde-headed girl is?

The bottom card uses yet more Graphic Fairy images for the wings and little girl. I added color to the wings, cut my own dress out of one of my fabric designs and added an OM stamp.
