1  Re: Wes Anderson Swap, Round 5 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by Susie Apple on: July 18, 2014 09:00:39 AM
Yeeee, I LOVE those coasters, very creative!!!  When I made my partner a set, I started panicking when the resin started changing the look of the paper, so I know how Susie feels lol.  But when I calmed down (because there's nothing you can do once you pour that resin uggg) I started liking the changes.  It makes it all better when our partners do too! 
Ah good, so I am not the only one. I've used resin before and it bled into my paper, but this time with the coasters I used Mod Podge to seal it first (and I even used a second coat). I thought for sure I wouldn't have the same issue. Except it did, yet like you said, you get used to it and even start liking it in parts.

WELL FOLKS, I have a lovely package to present to you. I received from Ramona Q a functional and adorable set of things:

Here's everything all together! I told her I like functional things and that I also have a printer's tray that I like to put trinkets in.

So, she embroidered this marvelous hoop of Steve Zissou to go on top of my printer's tray! The details are incredible and the back says, "Let me tell you about my boat". Too frickin' cool.

Then as a functional craft, she made me a Life Aquatic tote bag. I am still debating the lucky contents that are going to get to hang out in this bag. Maybe my books? Maybe some on-the-go crafting supplies? I love how it has the name of the boat on it: Jacqueline Deep Search. Perfect.

And then as if that wasn't enough, she also gave me a Moonrise Kingdom zippered pouch! I just bought myself some new Micron pens and now they have a home! The pouch has the troop number, the raccoon patch, it has "Khaki Scout" embroidered into the top, AND the zipper has beads that spells out Suzy- what an adorable touch.

Ramona Q, you really spoiled me. Everything was great. Thank you so much.

Alas, my computer has been fixed and my pictures have been retrieved. These are the ATCs I sent to pioneer9 for her whimsical monsters theme. I love to send an extra if I have the time and so she also received Pilot from Farscape. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE PIONEER9 AND KOSMICGIRL.  Grin

Okey dokey, I have received my final ATCs from May. (I still have pictures to post of what I sent to pioneer9, but unfortunately those cards are no longer in my possession and my computer that has photos of them has crashed...BUT it should be getting looked at today!)

Without further ado, some super cute cards from whatthepuck. More specifically, whatthepuck's kiddo. She claimed me for "Let Your Child Draw a Monster". I love drawings that children do, they can be so inspiring. These two ATCs are no exception. It looks like we have a cycloptic, winged creature as well as a large limbed purple and green beast! Thanks whatthepuck! You're my first claim for this theme and I now definitely wanna keep it around in the future.

Check out both of these links for some amazing things artists have done with kids' art.

I received a card from rockingbearranch for my surreal collage theme! This is a resend, because her first send out got lost on it's way to me  Sad (I am secretly hoping it just takes a long time to get to me, maybe it's sight-seeing, and then I'll have two fabulous cards, because I love this one so much...)

And of course I got some feathers and it came in an adorable card. (address hidden)

I received from CDEeeek and pioneer9! My themes were a surreal collage and a beast with lots of teeth, respectively.

The surreal collage is titled "New! From the makers of the T.A.R.D.I.S. Time Machines. -It's bigger on the inside!" I don't watch Dr. Who, however I still get it, since I am friends with plenty fans, plus I love it just the same. Thanks so much CDEeeek for this surreal advertisement right out of the '50s!

Then pioneer9 sent me Matthias, a monster with several teeth, horns, and a heart of g...reen  Grin. He's a handsome creature and a well drawn card, thanks-a-million.

I received some wonderful cards the other day, but was having some internet connection issues so I couldn't post the photos when I wanted. With those problems resolved, I give you my cards from blupaisan and My_RubySlippers respectively.

Blu claimed me for Retro Sci-Fi. This was my first claim for this theme and her interpretation of it made me decide it's a keeper. I love blupaisan's style. I have received ATCs from her in the past and so I am building a small collection. They all look great side by side.

My_RubySlippers claimed me for People with Antlers. The girl with antlers she drew is adorable. She looks like she's straight out of some whimsical manga or cartoon.

Thank you two so very much.

I received my last ATC for November. What a shame, it came and went so fast. My last ATC was from kosmicgirl for my "People with Antlers" theme. It's gorgeous. Her style is unique and so clean. The image just pops right off the card. She also was sweet and sent me a postcard from overseas. Thanks kosmicgirl for my ATC and for organizing this month so well.

I received from gozer for "People with Antlers". It's quite lovely. Check out this skill:

And kosmicgirl claimed me for the same theme, so I am very stoked to get these two back to back =D

So, I was claimed by Avesthel for "Take a Mess and Make it Art". Her interpretation was spot on. She used the mess of an old paint tray and crafting desk scraps. Thanks Avesthel for being the first to claim this new theme of mine. I'm excited of what will come of it in the future!

Here's her colorful work of art:

I don't have much time this morning, but hopefully later I can go through the gallery to ooh and ahh and some of the great ATCs this round. What I've seen so far is pretty awesome.

Loving the ATCs this round. They always give me ideas for new mediums, techniques, and themes.

Well, I am pleased to say I received a wonderful ATC from blupaisan. It was for my Object Head-Person Body Theme. I always love to see what people come up with for those.

Here he is, Mister Kegg. I could read an entire illustrated book about Mister Kegg. It's truly great. Thanks, blupaisan!
