A New Direction....sort of

I've been experimenting with some ATC techniques. Tell me what you think of these two new ones I just finished....





They both look better in person than here in a photo. The first one has a bit of metallic in that upper right section but it shows dark here. And the bottom one has some metallic on the top of her head.

Do they need something more (or less!) .... give me some opinions about what direction I should go with them.

  3. Now Janet, if we starting telling you how to do ATc's, they'd be ours , not yours..
    As thee queen of ATC's, I do give you the double thumbies up and concure that these rock as is.. Creations of yours always do.. :)
    Peace, Kai

  4. I like these a lot! especially the way you have a bit of text on them and also the intriguing faces emerging. I especially like the face with the lips...
    I wouldn't want to see the newsprint everytime...but I like it here..one thing I like about your collage ATC's is the variety!

  5. I don't know about "more or less," but I do know I like these really a lot.... I love the look of layers, and you've got it in spades... adds an element of mystery that isn't there when you make more simple collages. Did you see the article by JuJu Vail in the new Cloth Paper Scissors magazine? It's the best article I've ever seen about layering in collage and about visual brainstorming (mindmapping) the elements in a collage. If you ever have too many of these new style ATCs lurking around your studio, I'd totally love to have one. (Do you notice I'm on my knees?)

  7. I agree with Kai, your ATC's are perfect as they are. And so individual.

    The backgrounds look great and the colors you have chosen work very well together.

    I love the second one, it's fantastic!

  10. You want to know my honest opinion...what I think needs to be done with these...what you should add or do??? I mean you asked....so here goes....

  11. Hmm, I know what you should do with them - send them to me! LOL
    They look great! Trust your instincts, Janet - whatever looks good to you - it's your art, your way! That's the great thing about art - it's your vision and you can do whatever you want with it. Most of all - enjoy making it. xo

  15. To my eye, I would add a word or some text to the 2nd one. or a short quotation in an antique type or a decorative font. just an idea. :-)

  24. I am a newbie in the ATC scenery, and have only done a few, but these two of yours are fantastic. I cannot imagine adding or changing anything. I love them just the way they are.

    I also like your swap cards. You are so talented.

  26. Well, you have done it again, I just love what you do. I am so jealous because I want to do this and haven't really dug my heels in yet. Maybe I will just go for it.
    Janet, I think you have so much talent, More! More!
