Challenges and Swaps

Here is an art piece I created for Gingersnap Creations using packing material. The Background is corrigated cardboard. I used an empty plastic cover from a some buttons that I purchased. The inside is bubblewrap that I coloured with a shiny blue acrylic paint. The scuba girl is from a McDonald's fish sandwich. I braided packing twine and adhered it around the plastic shell. The dolphin and shells are from a plastic necklace.

Here is "Magnificent Men ATC Swap" for Altered Pages. The images were from "The Magnificent Men collage sheet and from Valention Collage sheet. I added jewels to the princely man. The Valentino ATC was stamped with a collage of an eye and then sticker Romance Ticket was added.

These cards are for two different swaps. Anything Goes and Black/White and touch of colour.

These bookmarks are for a swap showing different countries. The one depicting Asia uses a collage sheet from Altered Pages and the one depicting France uses the collage sheet CanCan and French Lady

This is a 4 X 4 using a movie theme for a swap. I used a coaster and the pictures are from the Altered Pages Collage sheet Josephine Baker.
