Love gone wild...



So, I signed up for a (small) swap - 4 ATCs only (yeah, I made 6, I know), to the theme of Love Gone Wild. This is being run by the lovely Lenna, over at Creative Swaps - she's been relocating and stuff lately, so this is the first swap she's done in a while, but I know we're all glad she's back in action...

Anyway, the theme is "Love Gone Wild". I've been letting this percolate in my brain for a week or so now, and the main images that kept popping up were overgrown gardens, jungles, and so on - which is certainly one kind of going wild.

So anyway, today I had a little free time at home after the washing machine repair guy had gone and before I had to go into work for the afternoon (I took the morning off) and I decided to work on these ATCs - I started with a fabric base - an old table napkin in this instance - and did a lot of free-motion leaves on it. Why I did this, I'm not entirely sure, as most of it doesn't now show, but it all adds to the textures... I then added some skeleton leaves, then animal print paper and the kiss images. Then I added some large burgundy leaves, the flower stick-ons and the dragonflies. I really like how these turned out, just hope they are "wild" enough.
