Goddesses for an ATC swap. The group this swap is part of will be closing at the end of the month, but the moderator, Ali Brandist, has started up a new UK group for all those of us who enjoy creating ATCs (and other art projects - inchies, tags, matchboxes, etc) with a vintage or "grunge" style - I'm sure it will be very popular and I'll be joining in a few swaps there myself, soon as I catch up on all my current projects! I tried to work out how to add a link to Ali's new group, plus a couple of other online art groups that I'm a member of, but I think I was doing something wrong ...... but I'll figure it eventually! Meanwhile, the name of Ali's group is Vintage ATC UK if any of you fancy checking it out. See - I can link up in my post but not in the sidebar - yet! Ali is a brilliant hostess and has a wonderful imagination for some great swap themes so I can highly recommend being part of her new group!
So, anyway, here are the Goddess cards that I've created over the weekend - it was a lucky dip swap, we each chose six goddesses to create from a huge list of names so everyone will be getting totally different goddesses back when the cards are swapped out.
"The Feral Goddess of the Volcano"
(also known as Hecate, Artemis or Kali)
"Nekhbet - Egyptian Goddess of Wild Birds and Heaven, Protector of the King"
"The Norns - Norse Goddesses of Fate & Destiny
(also known as the 3 Fates & Maiden/Mother/Crone"
"Atla - Norse Goddess of Water"
"Candika - Goddess of Desire & Fertility"
"Aine - Celtic Irish Goddess of Love,
Sun & Sky, Midsummer, Wealth & Sovereignty"
Don't forget I'm running a 3-card ATC swap throughout June (A Misummer Night's Dream) if you want to join in - details are in the sidebar.

Here it is ...... this month's ATC swap. As we are now into June and the longest day of the year will be approaching in a few weeks' time, I thought that this would be an appropriate summery theme and it should give you all plenty of room for interpretation ...... William Shakespeare's play perhaps, a dream that you've had, something fairylike and fanciful, even humorous or whimsical. However you choose to create your cards, I hope you enjoy the process of making your little pieces of art ..... it's wonderful to see just how diverse everyone's ideas are.
Details of the swap and how to sign up are listed in the sidebar, along with a card I made inspired by this theme (The Day Dreamer).
I wonder what mischief Mia is dreaming up right now?
