Momoko. For a That’s my Cat ATC swap on Swapbot. This here is the face of the queen instigator and chief of mischievous behavior in our household. She would provoke her brother hound to chase her up and down the hall, around the family room low table, into a bedroom and up onto the bed. When Tobimaru catches up to her, she would stop and meow loudly and annoyingly as if telling her human, “Moommyyy, Tobi is bothering me again!” *sigh* I had to hold her for this picture so she would stay still long enough for me to snap the shutter.
ATCs made from recycled materials. For a swap on Swapbot. Recycled materials used: used dryer sheets, discarded tissue paper from a gift basket, grocery coupons, acrylic paints leftover from a paint-by-number tubs, Starbucks’ pastry bag. Non-recycled: stamped images, pigment ink.
Tobimaru Redux ATC. I love my dog but he’s a pain to take a picture of. The only time I get a decent one is when he’s sleeping or lying down. When he’s up and about, he wouldn’t stay still long enough. I get his attention and then at the last minute, he’ll make the slightest move, distorting and blurring the shot. Sneaky bugger. Perhaps I should try tying a cheese stick or a bacon in front of the camera to get him to stay still and pay attention.
Unidentified Flying Imps. For a Rubber Stamp Carving ATC Swap on Swapbot. This is my first time carving out rubber stamps. I used Speedball’s pink rubber stamp block and linocut tools. I did something simple as I’m not confident with handling the tools yet. I got such butter fingers, I nicked a finger. Ouch! But it was fun, I just need more practice eh.
