March and April ATC Sessions in Bishan Library... Paper Traders ATC Swap

We had Rita to show us stamping techniques, namely masking and layering, for the March ATC session in Bishan Library.
I researched a little into stamping and found some other techniques to try on my ATCs.  I love adding a wee bit of embroidery particularly.
Traded for Rita's opened door and Helen Lim's Little Bear which she did during the March stamping session. I did the Rose one with making and layering. 

During April session, we tried line drawing - blind contour and continuous line drawing.  Most of us aren't too good with drawing, at least not me, but these are the occasions when I will try what I don't usually do on my own.  Well, we discovered an artist among us - our Librarian, Wei Lian!  She will be teaching us how to draw still life for next month session.
I did my ATCs with more stamping, this time using the back of clear stamps, and 2nd, 3rd, 4th generation images.  More embroidery too!
Swapped my ATCs for Mdm Au's quilled humming bird and Doris' drawing of Mdm Au!  I did a carousel horse drawing in continuous line.

Paper Traders had another ATC swap "My Wish For You".  I wish you will always be in good time and times! 

Received "Well of Happiness" by Ann Cameron, "Butterfly Muse" by Pam Colosimo, "Art Inspired by Nature" by Amanda, and "Time to Paint" by Nydia Dominguez.

What a nice variety of ATCs. Also looks like a lot of fun.

I think everyone who attends those library sessions is incredibly talented! - but this time there were no cards by your children! Always enjoy seeing their work.

I was behind in reading blogs. Oh, how I miss Singapore! You are so creative and adventuress.

Thanks, Wanda! I'm actually trying to cut down on all these exchanges to concentrate on more tatting and getting the patterns done.

Hi Maureen, you are right! My children are so busy with school and all the school activities, they are hardly doing any crafts. But they did do something for me and I'll be posting them soon.

Hi Christa, miss you too! I'm always so busy, hardly have time to update and post on my blog, not to mention reading blogs! Anyway, thanks to your inspiration since we met, I started designing my tatting patterns. I'm now working hard to finish up a small book of hearts, with special mention of you!
