Eiffel Tower ATC Swap


Yes, more Marie Antoinette art. I love this group that I am with. We did an ATC swap and these are the cards that I made. It is odd that something so small can cause me so much stress. I am still so new to creating ATCs and trying to do something small is a challenge for me. I really love how they turned out though and I especially loved the ATCs I received. I need to take some pixs to share.










I was flipping through the channels this morn while having my morning cupS of joe and came upon an old black and white Marie Antoinette movie. It was so sad, and then I felt guilty for making this art using her image when she was beheaded and went through all that she did. I don't ever think about what happened in history while creating Marie art but when I do, I feel badly for her. She was so young when she married and then to have her husband beheaded and her son taken away, I just couldn't imagine how painful that was for her. Okay, enough sad... I have more Marie art to create!

Have a great day!

Ok when I did the inch collage I just used her head....think of how I felt when I cut her heads off the body.......It was hard not thinking about it.....It's amazing it was only a few hundred years ago. I have to make my note cards now......au revoir!!!!!!

Hi Rhonda- Thanks for all you do! Mailing my pages Monday. Gave you a shout out on my blog. Last summer I read about 4 Marie biographies in a row- talk about depressing! The movie is about as cheerful as it gets. Love your Eiffel tower mouse pointer here.
