We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

My First ATCs

Just arrived from Ina Smirnova of Bears and Roses. I fell in love with this ATC because of the snowflake on it (as you might have guessed!). It was a special request to which Ina kindly agreed. Along with it are some goodies... Thanks so much, Ina!

"Silver Frost"; #4 of 7.

But this is not all. On 9 Dec, I gatecrashed one ATC gathering-sharing session that Ellen (aka Singtatter) attends. It was my first time at this gathering and one of the organisers shared on pointillism, a technique developed by Georges Seurat in 1886. Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of colour are applied in patterns to form an image.

I tried my hands on the spot. And, here it is... This ATC is somewhat simplistic, but I will like to learn more techniques to make more ATCs.

My first ATC: Discovering Dots

These are some of the ATCs made by the other participants at the session.
