Baseball is starting, the weather is warming up, the ice plant is blooming, the rain is tapering off, everything is green everywhere you look... Spring is here!
To get into the spirit of the season, we had a pennant banner swap on Paper Traders. Here is a picture of the one I made (which is now winging it's way to Linda)...

Paper Traders group hosts a "Winner Take All" ATC lottery. It's a lot of fun - everyone puts in one ATC and at the end of the month, we draw a winner who gets all of the entries... and then it starts over again for the next month. Entering just one ATC is not a big risk but when you win it's like a party in your mailbox!
These are the two ATCs I made for March and February. The latter is pretty simple but the first one took a couple of days to layer up the background. This was a variation of Jill Geraghty-Groves' "decaying background" technique as shown in the Mar/Apr 2011 issue of Somerset Studio. I didn't have the distress crackle paints she recommended so I used an all over clear crackle instead but I still think it turned out pretty nice.
