21  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Assemblage Art Swap 2 - S/U Feb24 thru Mar8, S/O April 10 on: March 03, 2017 04:16:57 PM
Looking for inspiration for this swap, I've just been re-reading Collage Lost and Found by  Josie Cirincione and Pretty Little Things by Sally Jean Alexander, and both of them specialize in assemblage and collage on very small things - dominoes, microscope slides, marbles, etc. So there are lots of possibilities for your little cabinets, crafty.

And thanks for sharing those photos -  love your type cases full of tiny things! I just found a dealer at a flea market that sells nothing but LEGO mini figs. Maybe we need to talk...

I bet those space urchins would itch if they got into your space suit! Cheesy

Such amazing stuff so far. I especially like the two tiny hands and the tiny box of tiny bottles with even tinier labels and seals. I guess I just like tiny. Cheesy A lot of winged specimens in boxes this time... I wonder what made that happen.

Am I the only one who now can't see any of the photos that Audio posted?

I would love to see a piece of that Simpsons fabric in a swap - it could be fit into almost any theme. (**Hint for future swap partners**)

It was funny to see how absurdly bright all the stuff I sent you actually was, LM. I didn't actually spread it all out like that, so I hadn't noticed it was mostly all the same shade of yellow! Cheesy I don't know if I made a potholder or a hot pad there, but it was a lot of fun. Irly Bird, in case anyone is wondering, is (was?) the mascot of a chain of building centres in British Columbia when I was growing up. I can't remember how I ended with this happy embroidered patch, but it seemed the perfect thing to include.

This has been one of my favourite swaps of the year. Such joy from simple things! Thanks so much for organizing this, vkvhawk. Shall we do it again next year at this time?

Oh, you people are killin' me here! The middle of April is opera tech period and I'll be insanely busy, and THAT'S  when all the best swaps are sending out! Roll Eyes

How can I pass this up, and yet how can I possibly do it? AAARRRGGHHH!


PS: I love the open-ended questionnaire, Geekgirl! It won't make it easier to decide what to make, but it's always great to have such freedom!

I'm hesitating to join this round, because even though I love TM patches, I know I'm going to be really busy at work right at send-out time. But it's always good to have a little something to work on in those idle moments. I've got a few more days to sit on the fence, though.

Mailed out a day late; unfortunately my cat felt the need to examine one of my items.  

Obviously you must have achieved a certain level of authenticity!

It's always great when a simple idea like this can produce such a vast range of creative interpretations. I'm so lucky to get to be a part of this sometimes! The heart shadowbox I received sits on my desk and I find myself studying it and seeing new things in it all the time. Thanks, Cheryl!

Thank you for those extra photos, LM! I absolutely could not get any pictures of the designs on the outside of the box to appear, and now I realize I somehow opened the box upside down and missed the sunrise entirely. Cry

So many bright fun things!

And here are some more, thanks to the LovelyMiss herself. There are quite a few photos here, but it was hard to crowd it all in.

First, she made this amazing bag! I love this kind of batik fabric - the gaudier the better. Even the lining is fabulous, and there's even a pocket!

I could hardly believe it when I pulled out one of the heart-shaped mini-piatas that LovelyMiss posted. I'm going to wait until I need another dose of sunshine to pull the string. Grin

I've also loved the woven hangings that LM has made before, and now I have one of my own. The range of textures and tones is wonderful.

A crazy, gloriously-sunny ribbon decoration, some bright ribbons and trims, a bottle of orange, clear and yellow mirror tiles, and a beautifully-made personal tissue packet.

A bright, yellow folder of paper and ephemera, including stickers, tickets, funny Japanese post-its, a Lotaria card, Monopoly money, dimensional paper embellishments and other paper bits. Plus yellow glow sticks, hand lotion and a balsa glider kit.

Here's a fat quarter of yellow leaf cotton, bottles of paint and Mod Podge, two tins of rub-on gilding wax (I've never seen this kind before!), a sheet of self-adhesive printed cork, two fabric paint pens (yellow, of course!), a roll of gold wire and one of yellow masking tape. Who knew there was such a thing as yellow masking tape? Shocked

Besides this beautiful hand-made card (with a tiny beehive tag), an orange cat with a ballpoint pen inside his butt Cheesy and a roll of glittery gold washi tape, there was a jar of whimsies with everything from a miniature guitar and the smallest deck of cards ever, to some butterflies, beads and a plastic frog. And embroidery floss, of course.

And finally, the treats! Chocolate (the best kind of packaged sunshine), cheesy snacks, gummy worms, apricot fruit leather and a Quasar Bar, which I've never heard of before. Sounds atomic!

Thanks for all this, LovelyMiss! The sun is shining today for the first time in several days, and I think it's all because of your amazing package!
