Freelance mixed media artist for this fabulous challenge is the very talented Linda.
Here s what Linda told us about herself...
I was born in Perth, Western Australia but travelled across the Nullabor with my boys a couple of years back and planted my feet firmly in Sydney.
I have tried a lot of arts and crafts and mostly enjoy experimenting with mixed media. I began my passion for paper as a scrapbooker but went on to ATCs and other off the page projects before settling into collage type art. Currently I keep busy with two young sons, my study (bach. degree of social science & bach. degree in arts), as well as teaching and promoting my art around Australia...someday I hope to go international.
I have been published in a handful of craft magazines for my ATCs and cards and enjoy working on design teams for companies such as Paper Artsy, Scrapware and Altered Pages.
The sky is the limit and I am having a blast :)
These stunning Artist Trading Cards were created by linda using 3 different templates which she kindly provided for us ....see post above for the templates.
Linda describes this look as her 'manky look of the moment... delicate, feminine and GRUNGY just like her' lol.
I think that you will agree with me they are FABULOUS.
Linda's blog and art work is amazing please pop over H E R E and pay her a visit.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE IN WITH A CHANCE OF OWNING ONE OF THESE FAB ATC'S THEN PLEASE JOIN IN THE SWAP.
Date closes on the 31st October.
UPDATE... Thanks Karen for your question.... THERE IS NO THEME.... it's open to your own ideas..... just enjoy doing them.

Have you ever lost the plot, don't know where your going and life gets in the way of the things you know you should be doing but the longer you leave it the harder it is to do it and no amount of reasoning with yourself can change that.
Then the panic and anxiety attacks take over.... I have been here many times but not to the stage where this lovely blog has suffered.
Wth the help of my crafty pal Chris (who you all know) I am back on my computer for the 1st time in 2months. Thank you Chris. x
Sorry there has not been any challenges for a little while and that your lovely swaps have not been sent out...that is about to change as help is coming my way from friends Chris and Debbie.
I HAVE MISSED YOU ALL.
Monday starts the challenge set by the lovely Linda which I told you about so long ago.
