Artist's Choice ATCs

This swap was to make WHATEVER you wanted to.  This is what I came up with.  They are being mailed to Spokane, WA.


Six little inchies to be swapped for six.  These are so much fun, but I gotta admit I kinda get a headache when making them.  Just imagine a 1"x1" canvas.  Oy vey!!!  On their way to Allentown, PA this afternoon.  I will not have a pic of the returns from this swap, as the gal who swapped with me only sent me some stickers, not even creating any artwork.  Very, very disappointed.

Time for a Haircut

The grasses in my yard are HUGE.  Actually had to have my husband use a chainsaw to cut them down.  What a clean-up project that was.

The End
 Red Hot Pokers are pretty darn hefty also.

Can you see those little deer?

Fornasetti ATC Swap

Piero Fornasetti was an Italian painter, sculptor, interior decorator and engraver.  Today it is most common to see Fornasetti's style in fashion and room accessories such as scarfs, ties, lamps, furniture, china plates and tables.  There are a series of rubber stamps showcasing Fornasetti, so this swap was to use those to create 3 ATCs.

These are the Fornesetti returns I received.  One of the best swaps ever.  Each artist did such an excellent job.  Doing a happy dance!

Stamped ATC Swap

This swap was to create 3 ATCs using rubber stamps, embellishments and/or stickers.  So I stamped the background, added a little color with chalks and then I added the flower embellishment.  This swap is for a group I have never traded with and I am a little intimidated because this group does a lot of drawing and painting and little stamping.....gulp!

Told you I was a little nervous about swapping with this group.  Just take a look at the returns, excellent stuff here.  Very delighted to get this type of artwork.  Not so sure the artists that got my cards are happy!
