Patti Edmon Altered Attic: Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home







I haven't done many swaps, let alone tag swaps, so when this opportunity came along on Art-e-Zine Cafe, I decided to join, not giving any thought to the fact that I'd get stumped. But getting stuck is a good thing because it forces the kind of problem solving that our brains usually slough off. Part of being an artist (heck, part of life) is entering new territory, not knowing what to do and finding a workable solution. 
I realize they aren't major works of art, but I like the way they turned out (I did the back sides too and made 6, duplicated one of them due to time constraints), I think they're cute. Whether or not they convey the Home Sweet Home theme intended is another question. It was fun finding photos I had taken (except for the sofa) and working with as many materials as I possibly could - acrylics, pastels, wholey paper, stamps, gaffer tape, rub-ons, charcoal... I should receive my tag book in the next week or so.
Whether you're traveling this week-end or staying close to your home sweet home, I hope your Memorial Day weekend is creative, relaxing, enjoyable... whatever you want it to be!

Oh, Patti! These are so pretty. I always love your art projects. The "Fly" one from last post is so nice too. Won't you join our sketchbook swap? I would really love to have your art included in our books. Think about it.
Have a great weekend.

I love all the new HOME tags you made but i think the first one is my fav. It just speaks to me for some reason. I had a friend request a HOME ATC from me yesterday so I need to get past my creative block and make something. Your tags inspire me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog recently. Always a pleasure to hear from you!

Patti, your swaps are lovely. The first one with the angel is my favourite. (the script on rusty red at the base of the piece makes it zing)
I'm really enjoying browsing your blog. Love the Zack canvas.
