Illustrated Envelop (Swap-bot swap)

This envelope is one I decorated for a swap on swap-bot called Illustrated envelope.  We had to decorate the outside of an envelope and then send it to our partner with a couple of things inside from a predetermined list on the swap.  I never decorated an envelope to this degree before.  I hope my swap partner likes it.  

My first Art Abandonment

So I had an extra twinchie from a swap I participated in on Split Coast Stampers and decided to give it away.  There's a page on Facebook called "Art Abandonment" I highly recommend it for people who want to pay it forward.  It was so fun and hope the person that found her enjoys her.  
I abandoned it at the postoffice in the town where I work (Sackville NB).  At first I put it over by the collectible postcards and no one saw it so when I went back the next day I pulled it out and left it on the actual glass display case.  When I went back the following day it wasn't there hopefully she found a new home.

Gotta Play Catch-up again....

Okay so yet again I'm playing catch up because I'm terrible at posting on my blog. Anyway here we go....

This is a twinchie for a Disney swap on Split Coast Stampers
I made as you can see a mike wazowski figure.
I also made extras to give away as an "Art Abandonment" I'm going to abandon them at the theatre when the new movie comes out. 
 This is from the same Disney swap but I decorated a mini comp book

This is a mini junk album I made.  The holder is a coffee sleeve

This is the junk journal naked. 

This is an ATC for another swap this one was called Lively Critters

And this is an ATC for a steampunk swap.

The tag come out

This ATC was from a swap on FB called my favorite things 

This was from the twinchie swap where I had made the vintage twinchie this one i in the nature category

These are called Moo's theyre little art prompts 

Okay well now I think I'm all caught up for now, until next time :)

Bottlecap swap

I'm addicted to swaps, I love the inspiration I get from the different themes and I love getting "happy mail" with different projects the other swappers have made based on the same theme. 

This swap is using bottlecaps.  We needed to decorate 4 bottle caps and a holder and make 4 of them per "spot" if you take multipule spots you had to do different themes.

I took one spot so far, haven't decided if I'm going to make another set or not.

I had my valentines papers still out from the banner I made so I decided on a LOVE theme.  

Hope you like it. :)

(The holder is a decorated mason jar lid.)

More Catch up...

Okay I've been terribly neglecting of my blog but seriously I doubt that I get much traffic lol.  Anyhoo I'll post pics of what I've been working on lately....

Oh and before I do that I want to plug my friend Peggie Solesbee's Blog and our new FaceBook Page "Altered Perceptions" join us there on FB for montly challenges and swaps and show us what you've been working on, alter egos welcome heehee

Okay now onto the photos.......

This is a 2x2 canvas I made for my friend Peggie 
she's a good scrappy friend of mine 
and I sent this along with the Valentines banner swap she's hosting as an early V-day present

This is the "V" I was responsible for in Peggies banner swap.
Once I get all the peices back it'll spell VALENTINE

This is a 2x2 canvas I made for a lady in the Un-Birthday swap I'm in.  Her fav colors are pale yellow and grey I used elements of those two colors so hopefully she likes it.....

This little beaut is a twinchie I made for a swap I'm in.  I'm in two groups Vintage and Nature, I still have to make my nature one but this one I made for the Vintage group.  I downloaded a picture and sized it to 2x2, distressed it, applied crackle, and distressed that after it dried, hotglued the lace, pearls and distressed flower. Really like how it turned out. 

This is another 2x2 canvas, I made this for the first Un-Birthday recipient 

Well that's all for now, thanks for checking in.  Will try and be more current in my postings, but honestly FB is winning out due to its ease of posting and having the app on my phone at a fingers length away....  ;) Ahhhh how lazy one gets with technology making it so easy to become that way.

ATC Jam return

OMG I love how this ATC turned out.  This is from a  JAM swap on Splitcoast Stampers.  JAMS are a swap where 4 people are in a group and you "Just Add More Stuff".  The first person makes the base and then mails it to the second and so on.  I made the base on this beauty.  I accidentally sent this to my summer group instead of the fall group so I ended up making these bases twice so will get two totally different ones back.  Can't wait to see the second group one, same base totally different group and will turn out completely different too.
