This is the wonderful Art piece she sent me for our swap. I love the Native American quote she included and the many beautiful swatches of fabric she used to frame it.
She even sewed her business card right to the back of her artwork. Isn't that a clever idea. I love the design her free flowing stitches made.And this is the pretty card she made and sent with it. I love the shimmer of the sheer fabric covering the flower. This scan really doesn't show how lovely this card is.
And then to top it all off she sent me a little bundle of fabric squares all tied together with a pink ribbon. I love them all and was so excited to see one of them had words printed along the edge "Hand Printed by Prints Charming Sydney Australia". I loved seeing that. I plan to find a way to incorporate the wording into whatever I make with these fabrics.
Wendy thank you so much for all of the wonderful things you sent along to me. I love the quote and the way you framed it within this beautiful piece of your art. I will have it framed as soon as I find the perfect frame to showcase it.
The butterfly is a stamp I purchased designed by Jessica Rose of vol25
This is a better view of the stamp. I thought it stamped pretty well considering I was stamping on lace.
I found a good use for some of the rickrack I found in my stash and some of the paper beads I made long ago. I added glitter to them too.
When I thought I was finished I decided it needed a stiffer base so I glued in to a piece of cardboard and then extending the painting out onto it. This piece was fun to make and I sent off a couple ATC's with it also. I have not participated in many swaps except for postcards and I must say the swaps can be a lot of fun. I really enjoy getting things in the mail and seeing my Mr. 's expression as I open it ever so slowly. Hee Hee!!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I did. I went out for the day on Saturday and played in the woods / helped out the boy scouts. It was hot but not a drop of rain and a nice breeze. Perfect weather for camping even if I did wimp out and not camp out!
