mamamoonie received! here is what I sent. sorry if some of the pix are crappy  Undecided
I sent her 2 framed (black frames) illustrations I did for her-

ghostgirl at gravesite:

and just ghostgirl (think I'll change my icon to this one!)

a shrine/cabinet type thing with a voodoo doll/zombie type doll I made:

a votive w/ bat shrinky dink I made:

and 2 pairs of earrings. I made pendants too to match them but neither of them worked (warped while baking). The rectangular ones I didn't draw- they are cards from the Halloween Tarot by Kipling West.

ghostgirl, that stuff is AWESOME! mamamoonie is a luck lucky girl! I, too, am a lucky lucky girl as I recieved my awesome package from danger0usangel03 today:

Shirt w/ VNV Nation's logo on it. So freaking awesome. And, although you can barely see it and this will probably only call attention to it, I apologize for the lack of pants.

Spock plushie! Sitting next to my Spock teddy bear. Uhm, yeah. It makes my nerdy side squee all over itself.

Cute little bag! With my name! And a pentacle! So awesome! But the best part?

It's totally reversible! Love it!

My alarm clock still holds a grudge from the time I threw it at the wall

Great projects.  Ghostgirl, those illustrations are awesome!  I'm jealous, wish I was that talented.   What did you use to create them?  That shrine and voodoo doll is too cute.

ghostgirl, the second illustration is sooo perfect.  Cheesy
 Shocked And wow, what is the shrine cabinet made of? It's very interesting.

thank you for your kind comments  Smiley

this is how I approach illustration: first, pencil sketch on marker paper. I like marker paper because it's thicker than tracing paper (good for erasing) yet you can still layer it to move elements of your illustration around before final inking. Then I ink the drawing with micron pens, most of the time right on top of the pencil lines (which I erase later). Then i scan the drawing into the computer. I have a watercolor painted background (on arches paper) that I made and scanned. I layer the drawing on top of it in photoshop, and then paint everything. If you put your layers on the "multiply" setting in photoshop, whatever you paint on top will let the background show thru (in this case the watercolor paper).

the cabinet is one of those small unfinished doll furniture cabinets that you can but at Michaels for like $1.00! It had a shelf in it which I removed to fit the doll inside.

I'm feeling the same way.  That is the only part of swapping that I really don't enjoy.
