Digi Dolls ATCs


The prompt in Creative Crafty Friends this time was digital dolls ATCs. Digital stamps of girls turned into 2.5″ x 3.5″ pieces of art. Right up my alley, yes? I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

Things to come. Things to look forward to. Pointing to the future, not today. Looking ahead to better days by way of the arrow. Pointing us towards better. The ATC prompt was arrow and I thought the words to be fitting. I began with my collage drawer of leftovers and pulled some pieces together. And… Continue Reading
