ATC's..My great Grandmother



I used a transfer method for this ATC of my great Grandmother,Ellen Roberts taken in 1888. Altered her hat a bit for fun. Used watercolors and Ranger distress inks and some german scrap for embellishments. The other ATC is for the paperimagerydesigns yahoo group..Grandparents is the theme.I put my grandmothers face in the album.. PID collage sheet #649(one of the sheets I got as the FABULOUSLY lucky winner of the PID blogroll contest..I won the mega prize of all prizes..PID knows how to give a prize!! I couldn't believe how many wonderful things were included..),then, I used PID's Olivia collage sheet..she is just too sweet!...she fit right over my grandmothers face and body(if you look close,you may see my grandmother's skirt peeking out to the right of Olivias feet!)I was really pleased with how this came out.

Hi Ann!
You are precious do you know that? lol
YOur ATC's are extremely artistic. I love them all! Just when I find one I like, I see another. I love the Halloween ones too.. so cute.
I am very happy to have you at my blog as you are so appreciative of art work. I would call you an artist.. When I used to teach dollmaking, the students who were afraid to take a step to sign up, always said.."oh, but I can't draw a straight line", my response was, "Great, because we never use straight lines in art"!
Hows that?
I will add your blog to my list and also be following your blog, I love it!
we have something in common I see, I have also been married for 32 yrs, and have two granchildren! Hugs, Darlene xo

Ann said...

Amy..your compliments always warm my heart!!! Thank you so much!!
Darlene..thank you so much for visiting and following my blog. I do so appreciate your wonderful compliments. I was just blown away by your dolls you made..I hope my other friends stop by and take a look at them!

james..thanks for your comment..however, I deleted it because of the link to a sales website that you put in. I only link to places i buy from or people whom I have previously asked if it would be ok..since your profile isn't visable...........sorry.

These are some of the best ATC's I have seen in awhile, they just made me smile and they are pictures of your Great Grandmother, even more special, the 2nd one is my fave!
xo!
Lisa!

Ann said...

Lisa, many thanks for your very generous compliment!! She was quite a woman..my Mother used to tell us that "Miss Ellen" had a very unique way of letting her family know when she wasn't happy with them...she would sit down and work on her shroud!! My Mother remembered her making 3 of them!! I was told she was a very fiesty woman!

Ann said...

April, you are so sweet !!! Thanks so much!! I am really pleased with them...the one with the PID images is for a PID yahoo group mingle.I'm hoping whoever gets it will be pleased!

april said...

Love all your Halloween pieces too! I am itching to do something Halloween-ey.

Ann said...

hey April !!! thanks so much!! i just love Halloween stuff..I have a bit of a weird ,dark side that emerges with Halloween and leaves(for the most part!!! LOL) after it's over.

Love the ATCs!! I can't believe how much creativity goes into such a small space - though I have been known to do inchies:)

Ann said...
