21  Re: Prayer Flag Swap R5: New Year, New Inspiration: Gallery of Goodies in The Swap Gallery by SonjaBoo on: April 20, 2015 12:57:04 PM
No problem -- I feel awful that the first one didn't make it over there! I hope this one has better luck!

Finally have a pic uploaded of the first flag that I sent to P_E_S_T. The new one is totally different and I like it better, but I enjoyed making this one too!

Maybe this one will show up one day! Ha!  Roll Eyes

I received from P_E_S_T, and it was so worth the wait! I can't begin to explain how delicate and gorgeous this really is -- it's a work of art.

A close-up of the detail:

Thank you so much, P_E_S_T! I am sorry that mine seems to be lost in the mail still -- I am working on a new one for you and will have it out this week. (Though to be honest, after receiving yours, I feel like I need a second attempt anyway! Grin)

Here is the flag that I made for myself -- the flower is supposed to be a lotus, and I used a stencil from Balzer Designs to make it. I have been doing yoga and am trying to improve, so "bloom" felt appropriate here.

Yay! I'm so glad that you like it. The little birds were fun to work on. Cheesy  

And just so you can see the similarities... here is the absolutely gorgeous journal cover that artsycandice sent to me! Notice the batik and stitching -- we seemed to be on the same wavelength with this swap. Cheesy Also, I just love the colors and giant felt flower!

The back:

The inside -- featuring pockets and bookmark!

Thank you so much artsycandice -- this was an amazing swap!

Yay! I'm so glad you liked everything!  I was hoping you would like the necklace -- I was a little intimidated to make it at first, but once it got rolling it was really fun to work with. I'm thinking I might need one myself one day! Grin

I am finally getting up photos of the gorgeous necklace and goodies that you sent. (Sorry for the hold up, my computer has been difficult with photos this week!)

So first off, everyone -- prepare to be seriously jealous! Check out the gorgeous fabrics and stitching on this necklace! I am in love!

And here are some awesome extras that I am already hoarding:

stellato_escuro, thank you for such a beautiful swap! Grin This was a treat!

This is really a beautiful gallery. I love everyone's interpretations of words and use of colors and fabrics. Could you imagine if we had them all together somewhere? That might be too much awesomeness to handle!

jenleahlynn, I'm so glad the pinks didn't turn you off -- I am not a pink girl either, but something about this theme just drew the romantic out of me! (I would be happy to make you a new flag if you are just being polite. Grin)

alwaysinmyroom, I'm thrilled you liked your gold/silver flag! It was so fun to make -- luminous is a challenging word to work with. I loved it.

Wulf, I had that old map and knew I wanted to do something with it for your flag. It was fun to work with! I think I liked making this flag the most since it was so different from all the others. Very glad it has gone to a happy home.

Both are quite lovely!  I love the beaded center of the Calm flag and the painted image on the Believe flag!

Not sure if SonjaBoo is still having difficulties uploading from her camera, so I will post the GROW flag I made for her:

Thank you alwaysinmyroom -- I am so sorry I didn't get a pic up sooner! Here's the one that I took -- I absolutely adore this flag. (Look at those roots -- things grow in many ways, don't they?) alwaysinmyroom has outdone herself once again!

Wow -- this is a stunning gallery! Definitely one of my favorites of all time, I think. So many beautiful pieces here.

I am thrilled that I have some more gorgeousness to add to this already gorgeous gallery! My general theme for my flags was gardening, growth, beautiful flowers and such. I live in Massachusetts, and right now, all of those things are far, far, far away. (We've gotten already 8 feet of snow in the past few months! We aren't used to this abuse!)

First up, from Wulf -- believe. I believe the snow will melt, and we'll see something green eventually! Grin This flag is just beautiful and was the first one that I received. I adore it.

Next up, from jenleahlynn, dream. This one is just stunning! The colors are incredible and I just love that little hummingbird.

And from cmarion, create. Who can have the winter blues when you see these gorgeous flowers and colors? I feel rejuvenated!

I have another one to post a photo of -- from alwaysinmyroom -- but my computer is being fussy and not uploading the photo right now. But trust me, it's gorgeous. And I'll get the pic up as soon as I master this technology. Grin

Thank you all for such a beautiful and inspiring swap!

Oh my goodness -- what an adorable package! I love the doll and the hoopla!

I received from lindyv321, who quite frankly, spoiled me rotten. I had the longest week ever and it was such a treat to open this box that was overflowing with heart goodness!

There were crafty goodies. There were extras. There was candy. There was an awesome book of "vintage" valentines that I am drooling over at the moment. I love everything!

And a close up of the crafted goodies -- I love that hoopla! And the jewelry is awesome -- I have the bracelet on already, and will wear the necklace tomorrow too Cheesy And I love the little frame -- so sweet!

Thank you so much lindyv321 for everything!!

28  All You Need Is Love Canvas in Valentine's Day by SonjaBoo on: February 10, 2015 03:28:40 PM
I made this for lindyv321 in the Valentine swap -- I had so much fun with this canvas! It was inspired by some art on her Pinterest board. This one involves lots of paint, sprays, stencils and generally just making a mess. That's my favorite kind of project. Grin

Here's a few closeups so you can see the texture:

Thanks for looking!

Super cute package! Love it all. Cheesy

lindyv321, I think it will make it -- we do have our mailbox dug out! Ha!

30  A Tray Full of Love in Valentine's Day by SonjaBoo on: February 10, 2015 02:59:31 PM
I have had this shadowbox/tray for ages and finally got inspired to do something with it -- Cupid evidently shot his arrow into my brain!

There's a little bit of everything here. Heart beads, buttons, paper flowers, ephemera, etc. The big silver key is something I picked up in the bargain bin in Michaels at least a year ago, and the big heart in the center is plastic and colored with alcohol inks. The silver heart down in the lower left corner was a dud experiment with a melti-pot, but it worked out fine for this. The cupid up at the top was a plastic cake decoration that I then applied some gold burnishing stuff too -- pretty classy!

Here's a before and after of how the Cupids came out -- I have about four more that are looking for a home now.

Anyway, this was definitely a stash buster! I'm totally in the mood for Valentine's Day now. Cheesy

Thanks for looking!
