Happy St Patrick's day!!

I think my glass of champagne has a slightly green tinge but it could be the reflection from my green ear-rings, worn especially today to set off my green linen shirt...

These four ATCs are available for trade to celebrate green in general and St Patrick's Day in particular - just leave a comment - there are just the 4 available.

Other stuff completed last night (before the thunderstorm to end all thunderstorms - it lasted from 1am to 6am, was SO loud & bright and robbed me of my sleep) - some more ATCs, this one for Albine using my new Oxford Impressions stamps and another piece of fabric paper (does anyone else do this and just work through the pile of stuff left next to your desk from the last project?),

this one a variation on my earlier Cyber Fyber embellisher and angelina ATC (this one has gold glitter dimensional paint "beads") -
and to finish off this post, this my latest art journal page for the CreativeChix group and a couple of sunset shots from my front yard - look at the contrast in the clouds just two days apart! The journal prompt was to address our fears, especially in terms of our art. I focused on the act of banishing the fear rather than the fear itself. Enjoying the journaling process - whenever I sit at my desk and can't settle on anything one thing I am doing a background on a page in my journal - I am amazed how productive it makes me feel even though I haven't finished anything!!

I have just discovered your blog via Sharon. You are certainly prolific.
Love to see variety of techniques - keep it up.

Can I swap one of the green ATC with you because guess who's birthday is today, ME!!!!

Karen Stiehl Osborn said...

These are great, and the Irish in me wants to swap. Let me know what you want in return, and I would like "e" or "f". Thanks!

You always have such beautiful art! It's a joy to visit here.

Those photos are awesome. And that storm sounds like it was a real hum-dinger! I'm glad that you only lost some sleep and nothing more.

Wow,what an amazing dark sky! The storm sounds terrifying!

Myra said...

Happy St Patrick's Day to you too Debbi! Loving your eye candy, especially the green ATC's.

Jen Crossley said...

Hope you had a great St pat's day Debbi Hm green champagne yum!!!
Love your green ATC's they are beautiful

Julie H said...

Debbi I sometimes wonder if i ever really start anything new as the tail end of one project always seems to be the beginning of the next.

I don't have any ATC's at teh moment, but would lovet o trade in the future.

Your latest work looks lovely Debbi, keeping your hand busy!!
Unfortunately that storm did not meet us here in Perth, some rain would be most welcome!

Elaine Cooke said...

Hi Debbi
What an interesting collection, as usual :-)
You've really inspired me to get creating in an art journal, I think it's a great idea for when you're in between projects or just stuck on something, like you said. I love this journal page, it makes such a great statement as does the other one,
'feel the fear and do it anyway!!' another favourite of mine.
Your green ATC's are lovely, I've only just got to grips with swapping PC's so I won't start on the ATC's yet LOL
BTW your PC/inchies swap is almost finished.
Thanks for your inspiring comment on my March PC for CG.

So beautiful! Love the angelina ATC - I've just started playing around with some, it's fabulous stuff.

I think all the green ATCs are gone now , but give me a hoy if not; I'd love to trade.
