pop tabs is fine - that is what they would say in the midwest.  here on the east coast we say soda tabs!

Sorry I've been so lazy about posting photos.  I recieved normashelleyjean's package last week and here's the beautiful frame she painted me.  She painted me a sunset since she felt she wasn't able to get a good sunset photo for me.



And here are a few of my favorite photos:


Also my favorite view of trees!


I love light..


I took this from her runnerup album cause I liked it so much..


more trees with pretty colors!


I told Shelleyjean that I loved water so much that she could send me a photo of her pool if there werent any bodies of water nearby.  So she informed me that it was covered for the winter but then I recieved this photo anyway.  I think the reflection is pretty.


Thanks normashelleyjean for making my first swap so perfect!

I would call them ring pulls, silverfisch, but then I'm an Aussie living in London, so am naturally strange! Wink

Tracey87, I love your frame too, such pretty colours, and Normashelleyjean's photos are lovely! Cheesy

I think I'm a little late posting these, but I received my pictures and frames from my partner, Narimasu. I think she already posted a link to the rest of her photos, but these are my favorite ones. Thanks for the beautiful pics!  Smiley

Mt. Ranier. How gorgeous is that?!


Railroad tracks near Narimasu's house.


Blondie. What a sweetie.  Smiley


Part of Narimasu's driveway.


Mossy bench.


Thanks for the wonderful pictures and frame, Narimasu!  Grin

Received my package from sarasvati and have created a little Photobucket slideshow: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v109/waterbaby/From%20sarasvati%20for%20Craftster%20swap/?action=view&current=a3d989bb.pbw

Here a few pictures:

The frame, which looks to have been wrapped with apple green paper over the front of which was glued blue-printed vellum, with a print of one of her photos inside:


A beautiful old Carnegie Library which is now an art gallery:


A gaggle of local residents:


One of the many waterfalls which surround the area:


An overview of this lovely corner of Canada:



Also wanted to share here my first two unfortunate attempts at picture frame modification.  Something I've been wanting to try for a long time is eggshell mosaic, have been saving up variously shaded shells for years, and in fact had purchased a few picture frames for this very purpose.  Well, here's what some two hours of work yielded (and another hour's worth on the reverse of that side:


Pretty feeble AND was going to take wa-a-ay too much time.  My next idea held promise of a better outcome: polymer clay.  I had a fun cane I'd made and thought it would be great as a picture frame, so I cut slice after slice, fitting the pieces as I went, then smoothed it all out, and baked:


Guess the particular plastic of that frame was not meant to withstand 275 degrees in a toaster oven.

My ultimate solution involved paper and paint, and here's a close-up detail of one corner (sarasvati, avert your eyes!):


Ahh, much better....
