Hard to believe - Round 13 is starting for ABC Wednesday. There's a brand new logo and a new challenge for the next26 weeks. It is a great community - come and join in the fun!
I wanted to try a new art challenge and creating APCs (altered playing cards) has become a new favourite. Several people I know through ATCs For All create whole decks of altered cards. I have not done this yet although I have become a butterfly deck.
For this round, I will be creating a deck of famous Canadians, preferably using used stamps. As there are 52 cards in a deck, I will be creating 2 a week.
A is for Bryan Adams, an amazing singer
Here is another quote by Bryan Adams:
"Thoughts are things; they have tremendous power.Thoughts of doubt and fear are pathways to failure.
When you conquer negative attitudes of doubt and fear
you conquer failure.
Thoughts crystallize into habit and habit solidifies into circumstances.”
A is Paul Anka
"Paul Anka is a Canadian singer-songwriter and actor. He became famous in the late 1950s and 1960s with popular singles including "Diana" and "Put Your Head on My Shoulder."
A is also for Margaret Atwood
I also created an ICAD (index card for a challenge at Daisy Yellow). I had originally planned to use Margaret Atwood - one of Canada's favourite, best known authors. But the quote was too long for an APC so I used it on an index card. It is very powerful - one we all need to internalize and demonstrate. (Check here for more of her quotes.)
Check here for all the challengers, to see how people around the world faced the challenge of A.
