Spreadin a Little Love!

Fly Me To The Moon

This ATC (traded in an Ebay swap) is a perfect example of what can result when fellow artists connect, through this wonderful, online community!

I admired this gorgeous lady on Tracy Roo's flickr site and she shared it with me along with two others (THANK YOU, TRACY). The background technique was the result of my ongoing fascination with Kerrie Guinane's artistry, who hails from Down Under! She emailed me a description of how she layers multiple colors of alcohol inks on her brayer, spritzes with water for a watercolor effect and I have to say W.O.W. (THANKS, KERRIE).

These generous and talented artists are among a vast ARMY of dear friends who are all making this very special connection via the Internet on blogs, flickr sites, etsy, ebay, Yahoo Groups and more! It makes the world seem so much smaller when we take the time to reach out to each other and find out how much we are the SAME.

I feel lucky today, as I sit here at my PC at 2 AM and count all of you among my many blessings. I appreciate the time you all take to browse here, leave such positive feedback and touch me in a very special way.

All my love,
- Vicki xo

Ooo I love this one Vicki!!! Tracy is a sweetie, isn't she? She's a friend of mine and lives about 15 minutes from me. I met her via her blog just over a year ago. If it weren't for the internet, I wouldn't have any friends at all...and I mean that quite literally. All the friends I have right now, both local and around the country, I have because of the internet. It's such a wonderful way for us introverted artists to connect. :)
