Earlier today I was waiting on 2 possible outstanding packages & neither one has arrived. One was definitely mailed from overseas earlier this week and the other one, I'm not sure if it was sent or not. But today is the deadline for all swaps to be here. I will start swapping what I have in my hands. For the one package that is still coming, I will use any extra collages or collage bits that were sent and I will swap these extras for the late swaps so something is received by the participant... but anything late cannot be part of our regular swap that I will do today. I need to run my swaps this way, with no one waiting for packages because I have been through that before (yuck) and learned the hard way!!
Anyways . . . here is what I came up with myself. And I want to let you know I am organizing a new swap idea! Plus, I will announce here when all is swapped and sent. Thank YOU!
Tea dyed paper, a familiar looking ticket (for this swap)
Two photos of me, watercolor crayons
recycled cardboard from box wine & a bit of an old map
The scan did not do this justice, so a photo
Old music paper some of you received
Paper from Mary Green's class, collage square from ARTchix Studio
Tea bag tag and Colorshine Gold spray ink from Heidi Swapp
Fabric & paper plus watercolor crayons
The fabric is a leftover unfinished ATC from Color Groupies in 2009!
I sewed it to the 5x5 card as it was rough with batting on the back
I enjoyed sewing on paper.
I hope you enjoyed, I will be back with a note when the swaps are sent.
