Spring Bunting Swap

Back in April I joined a bunting/banner swap.  My first swap outside of ATCs.   Amy over at RubyMoon Art was the host.  She sent all the participants an outline so that size wise we'd all have the same model to work with and then we were set free to create.   Paper, fabric, canvas... whatever materials we wanted in whatever colors we choose.  So I used paper, ribbon, flowers, buttons and made them all different.  We were told to make five and in return we'd receive five.   Each one from a different person.

I used all materials from my stash.  Which was very freeing.

A few brads here, a few gems there.

An occasional saying, sticker and inking.
Spring Bunting 4
This was my favorite.  Something about the pink and teal combination of colors that enjoy.  Hard to see but I used some shimmer mists for a bit of sparkle on most of them.

I found my happy Spring Bunting in the mailbox in time for May 1st.   Which was great cause I thought Spring would never come to WI. this year it's been cold for far to long this year.
I wish I had a better picture of how pretty my bunting truly is but the sun has been hiding a lot.

"Doodle Details" ATC

There was another swap at Paper Studio recently and the theme was Black & White.  I struggled a little with what to create and what to use.  I felt limited and could only think of checker board.   Then I came across Alisa Burke and her "peeks" into her sketch books.  I used to doodle.  A lot.  So I picked up a pen and got started.

All a bit different and worked on individually but only a little bit at a time from start to finish.  I love how they turned out and it was fun to see them in a group.

I'm working on another batch for the Stampede ATC Swap.  We'll see as I need 20-30.  I've never made that many before... that's a lot.
