1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ongoing ATC Swap - January 2015 - GALLERY on: February 20, 2015 10:43:15 AM
M&C - I had a lot of fun with the 'what goes on in your head' theme and I ended up doing a few different cards.  My husband looked at all of them and was like "How do you live like that?!" to which I responded - as Harry Potter fans would - "Just because you have the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn't mean we all have."  Wink

There have been so, so many awesome cards!!  And so many neat themes I would never have thought of but then I'm like 'ooooooh, that's so awesome!'.

Now that I'm playing with watercolors, I'm gonna end up with waaaaayyyyyyy too many options for this!  Guess I'm just gonna have to start designing a display for my own 4 x 6 pieces  Cheesy

I received my 'What it means to be an artist' card from Mountains and Clouds:

Prepare yourselves for some serious jealousy from my spoilage by midkiffsjoy!!  Joy decided she had too many ideas to stick with one so I seriously lucked out with my partner!  Wink (Though all the packages so far have been honestly fantastic!!)

So we have the trio come Valentine's Day...

Altogether, it stands about 8" tall or so.  Joy figured if she smushed all the pieces together it would fit into the 4x4 space  Cheesy

Then we have McGonagall!!


Aaaaaaaand an 'Always' heart ornament!!


It is super adorable and will be living on my diningroom wall!

Then we still have treats!  A big package of the most perfect thing you can ever hope to purchase:


And if that wasn't spoilage enough, she made toffee (my favorite!) shortbread cookies!!!  Shocked


A great big huge box of them (thank God because my husband is addicted to them and I want some, too!)!

My package also came as a howler, had HP valentines all over it, plus sent an adorable Valentine with a whole Snape and Lily scene!!  Awesome, awesome, AWESOME package!!!

Cmarion3 - That was done with pencil outline, then pearlized watercolor, then sharpie over the pencil marks.  I wanted to capture the idea of two very different but equally beautiful roses - like the song says.   Smiley 

My mom and I are taking a watercolor class together - we've had two classes but haven't picked up a brush yet  Huh - so I've been playing outside of class.  I have tubes of watercolor but also a little $5 pan watercolor palette that's pearlized (at Michael's) and oh my gosh, I love them!!  Our teacher apparently hates pan sets but if there's an option to have a little shimmer in my paint, you better believe that's the way I'm going  Wink

Oh my - there is SO much talent here!  All of these are fantastic!!  I do have the say the quote one is *so* well suited for my tastes and I am particularly jealous of that.

But now you guys can continue to be jealous of my collection!  Wink

So I guess this arrived yesterday but we didn't check the mail til this morning and lo and behold, my card from YennaMuffin:



This is "Mermaid Beauty" for my Positive Plus-Size Imagery theme!  It's gorgeous!!!  And once I have enough, this theme is going to go into an ATC display on the wall that my brother gave me for Christmas and this is the perfect start!  Thanks!

I never so much at this moment realize how much I am a "measure, measure, oh screw it, I'm winging it" kind of person. It's looking pretty awesome but I learn what I should have done along the way too... Roll Eyes Stupid 20-20 hindsight.

As someone with multiple chronic pain conditions, I have the *worst* habit of trying to sometimes "make do" with what's in arm's reach if I somehow missed or forgot something the first time around gathering supplies.  So many times it ends up SUCH a bigger expense of energy.  I'm really working on it but when I flare - like this past few days - oh it's hard not to slip back.  Roll Eyes

Also, I'll ship out Priority if I can't get there until Monday so midkiffsjoy can get it in time for Valentine's for sure!!
