Mixed Media MOODS Challenge II

I've been following Mixed Media Jenn on Youtube for quite some time now.  She has collaborated with DeeDee Catron for some Mixed Media MOOD fun!  

So here's my first take on this challenge.  ATC's made out of a piece of corrugated cardboard from a delivery box that I saved because I loved the design on it.  This is both sides of the piece, that I cut 2 ATC's from. 

With a little bit of paints and some very cool textured papers, a torn strip of dyed fabric, attached with a little brad, I added the words from a song that came on while I was working...
"DO WHAT YOU LIKE" by Blind Faith. 
(and I just saw Steve Winwood in concert this summer at Bethel Woods, aka Woodstock...he was FANTASTIC!)

The second ATC from this project took on a mind of its own while I was tidying up the work space.  Bits and pieces...scraps of other projects, stared at me begging to be included, so here is the second card gaining its own internal PEACE. 

Yes, I do what I like, and it gives me peace!

Hop on over to visit these talented gals and 
enter the Challenge yourself!  Aloha!

Art Abandonment

I recently joined an online group called Art Abandonment on Facebook, and these folks sure do spread joy all over the world with their creativity!

I have abandoned a few items along the way in my travels, to Honolulu, Los Angeles, Chicago and a few other locations.

Here is an ATC that I abandoned yesterday at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts (aka Woodstock).

Good times with good friends and good music!
