I've only done one other swap with that group and was really happy with the quality of workmanship. So I feel confident that the ones that I receive for this swap will be great.
Here's what I made:
If I were thinking, I would have taken a picture of one of them before I started (I made 5). I started out with a filled metal element from the Industrial Chic line by Susan Lenart Kazmer.
I was instantly drawn to the variety of mediums included within the binding and could not wait to start adding to and creating within it.
Sorry for the fuzzy picture. Underneath the stamped acetate is a bird mailing stamp.
The bird on this page is made out of wood. I used Copic Markers to color it.
I also used them to color the stamped image on the acetate.
For this page, I stamped the quote on Sticky Back Canvas by Claudine Hellmuth.
The butterfly below was Color Magic Butterflies and Color Shine Tropicana Teal from Heidi Swapp's new line.
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tissue Tape was added to this page.
I created the ATC base (2 1/2" x 3 1/2") using an Inkessentials Surface Gloss ATC and alcohol ink by Ranger Ink to create this polished stone look.
I hope that the Host and Swappers like it.
If you can have any boards that you enjoy swapping on, please let me know!
