I received this beautiful fabric ATC in a swap.  Gotta try this technique!  (Wait, gotta get a sewing machine first.)


Matchbox Swap!

Made this little altered matchbox for a swap over at Mail Me Some Art.  I happened to find some tiny bird feathers on a walk recently, and that's how the bird theme got started.  I loaded the box up with tiny bird-related trinkets.

In The Pink

 I "painted" this with modelling paste that I colored with acrylic paint.
(Made this for a postcard swap, but I like it so much I might just keep it.)
I cut apart a painting that didn't turn out to my liking and
reassembled it on a postcard to make a frame for the little flowers.

A Trip to the Art Museum

My sister and her husband invited me to join in their "stay-cation" activities this week, and today we went to the Cincinnati Art Museum.  A few photos ...

I just liked these outdoor sculptures.

This glass sculpture by Chihully hangs in the
entrance of the museum.



I love this monk's peaceful face.
Had to go to the gift shop, of course!

I'm sending this to my friend in Japan ... still in a flower mood.

Watercolor

My First Altered Tin

I made this "birthday card" from an Altoids tin for my sister's birthday today.  The little girl is from an actual old photo I found in an antique store, and the greeting is from an antique birthday card.  This was a fun project!

Must be Spring!

I'm in a flower kinda mood this week ...


Also, here are three ATC's I'm sending to Kayla in Australia for the Blissful Art swap.  The theme was "Easter Egg."
