Kindred Souls Art Group Card Swap

I recently joined a cool group called Kindred Souls Art Group.  The leader, Gloria, is hosting a 6 for 6 card swap using a particular image.  I thought I would give it a go.  Everyone has to use the same image, but can do what they want with it.  I chose to print out the original image that was black and white, and painted them with water color Aquarelles.

 As you can see, each of my cards is different. 
I used scrap paper pages for the base. 

I embellished with lace, paper, millenary, and ribbon.
I love how they are all different.

I think this one is my favorite.  Probably because it is pink!
and I love the floral paper on this one, and HOPE is one of my favorite words.
This one is sooo French!  And I used fabric paper for the base.
I was so thrilled to be accepted into this group.  I made this for the hostess of the swap.  It's a wall hanging with the same image on it.  I really like how it turned out.

I'll post later with pics of the ones I receive from the swap.  I am excited to see them all.  Thanks for letting me share and have a blessed day...Becs

"Fabric of Nature" swap display

As most of you know, I recently participated in an all fabric (no paper allowed) ATC swap hosted by Kim Laws at Art Joy Stuff.  See earlier post here for the artwork and the participants.  I had some amazing swap partners!!!

Kim asked us to create a display for the cards and post about it.  You can go to her blog to check out all the other displays that are just awesome! Kim will be posting each day about them for the next week.

 I wanted to do a temporary display for mine beacuse I want to eventually make a wall art piece with them, but have not had the time to do it yet.  So I came up with a burlap flag banner.  I cut out flags from burlap then tacked the ATC's on then strung them on cord. I have three of them and have them hanging in my studio for inspiration. They are all so beautiful. 

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out the other blogs to see their displays.
Have a blessed day.....Becs
