Number 100

This is the 100th digital ATC I’ve designed since January 1st and I’ve celebrated by Photoshop-ing this image of Aunt Connie against a scene from Andrea’s cottage.
Does she look like an “Aunt Connie” to you? She doesn’t to me. Nevertheless, that’s her moniker on the back of this photo. (Thanks for the image, Wendy!) In order to get the effect I wanted, I used ten different layers in Photoshop and had a ball.
Last night I looked back at all the digital ATCs I’ve done this year and about ten per cent of them I wouldn’t do again…particularly the one of Emma that kicked this whole project off. Before then, I’d done a slew of others too. I probably have another hundred tucked away in various files, but I don’t think they’re as good. Sometime—when I have the time—I might troll through my Photoshop files and tally them up. But personally, I’d rather be creating new stuff than trying to resurrect my earlier efforts.
Yesterday when Godelieve left a comment on my blog, she wondered how these ATCs would look in a book. I think that’s a great idea Godelieve. Thanks for the suggestion.

Congratulations on number 100!!
I love to check out your ATCs, and I always wonder "How did she do that?"
