Finally showing some swap art that
I made for Annette. (Scrap Happens Here)
The theme for her book was
'Proverbs.' The page above says
"Don't put all your eggs in one basket."
(click on any image for enlargement)
"The early bird catches the worm,"
with fabric, lace, silk greenery, buttons,
and my watercolor of an American Robin.
Small pamphlet-stitch book to go in
the pocket of
"You can't judge a book by its cover."
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,"
created with scraps of cardboard,
paint and paper. The charm unfortunately
caused the scan to blur the details
of the image.
"One woman's trash is
another woman't treasure."
I used a discarded
music library card, brown paper
bag, scrapbook paper, and the gentleman
in the bathing costume is from a carton
of hard cider I believe. Multiple
layers of paint were applied to the collage,
along with the spiral clip, beads
and a vintage charm.
"A smooth sea never made
a skilled sailor." This is made from
some pretty scrapbook paper that
has an ocean/fishy theme.
Tags in the "sailor page" pocket.
Many thanks to Annette for being so patient
and understanding about the late arrival
of her package. Hopefully, it is a case of
"good things come to those who wait!"
