The theme today was female artists. My first thought (like most others' it seems) was Frida Kaloh, but so many others chose her that I decided to choose someone else. One of my favourite female artists is Laurel Burch, I love her colourful creations. Laurel died from a crippling desease last September, I made this ATC as a tribute to her. (Towards the end of my blog you can see a series of ATCs that were inspired by her work shortly after her death. They have all now moved to the homes of some of my swap community friends).

This week the Gothic Arch challenge was to use flourishes. I liked the idea as it has so many possibilities, just about anything, as long as it has a flourish. I embossed a couple of flourishes on two sides of the arch to complement the girl with her basket of flowers, which I felt really suited not only the theme, but also the lovely spring sunday.

Found out a few days ago that the little booklet that Tim Holz describes in the chapter on distressing on his DVD, if you make it out of a piece of A4 paper, will hold 2 ATCs beautifully, so I have just been making some for friends. Here are some pickies
