This 4x6 piece has definitely earned a place on my Wall of Important Stuff -- the message is one I struggle with on a regular basis (mostly during swaps, lol) and I just love the wonderfully textured palette.

And because I'm still not clear if I'm supposed to say, you guys can have some fun guessing who did this piece.  If someone (other than the artist) gets it right, I will confirm.  ;D

Thank you, Unnamed Artist, I can't wait to hang it up!

I received also today - an inspirational piece for those of us who take life too seriously!



The text reads: Draw a crazy picture. Write a nutty poem. Sing a mumble-gumble song. Whistle through your comb. Do a loony-goony dance 'cross the kitchen floor. Put something silly in the world that ain't been there before.

It is stitched all around the edges and has many mini-brads on the left side. And a braided hanger. Love it and good advice. Thanks mystery partner! (But I think I know who you are....)

I'm adding a closer pic (yes, it's mine, lol).

The verse is a Shel Silverstein poem.

Wow, I love the gallery already! Great artwork!


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: Sylwa on June 18, 2012 08:49:20 PM
those are so wonderful!
I lack imagination  ??? I am hoping I will be as creative as you guys one day.

Oh my partner should receive tomorrow! My bf has never been to the post office before (dont know how that is possible) so when the lady asked him if he wants it express he said sure. Then he gives me a partial tracking number that doesnt work so I am freaking out trying to call him back, finaly got hold of him, turnes out he left out the letters in the tracking number.

This is what happens when you leave important things up to men  ;D

Did you send to me? ;-) If so (:-D), I will have to pick it up Thursday or Friday because I am working late on the other side of town till Thursday. Even if its not you, I am totally stoked.

I sent mine out yesterday, I will send an e-mail with the DC later tonight after I get the smell of Goodwill off me and fish my postal receipt out of my car. :-D

I am pretty sure I've sent to you Burstofpanties  ;D and so once again sorry for having to drive to the post office!

Also I will be back home Sunday so I will post picture of what I received then even though it will probably get to my house before then. I just cannot wait to see what I got  ;D


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: BigBangMomma on June 20, 2012 05:35:51 AM
OOH, Love the Hippo! My DC says my partner received a few days ago....anxious to see what she thinks of it!


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: Gr33nT3a on June 20, 2012 07:06:06 AM
I'm loving everything in the gallery so far! So much inspiration and all the pieces are so different.

I'm seriously jealous of these multi-media artists though.

Looking at this as well, I realized that I forgot to check my mail box today. So hopefully It's in there!

(Also it has me as not having sent, but I sent already and PMed with a DC number and everything.)  :)


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: charlieandwillow on June 20, 2012 10:00:41 AM
This arrived in the mail today
I think I may have scared the mail man as I swooped in to see what goodies he was delivering...
I love it, the vibrant colours are soooo me, and I often need to be reminded that without the lows in life we don't get to experience the highs either. It's taking pride of place on my dresser so I see it each morning before I face the day. Thank you mystery swapper!
Also, I checked my DC#, and it's marked as being out for delivery.


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: BigBangMomma on June 20, 2012 10:53:39 AM
OOh, that is so neat! I am really loving the inspiring quotes we have going on this round! Those colors are great!


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: yzzilnoaj on June 20, 2012 03:26:07 PM
I received this WONDERFULLY creative piece of art.  I am really into multi media art and I love all the different mediums used...very inspiring.  I am not sure where this picture will end up going because I am about to move, but it will be going up somewhere! I really love it!


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: BigBangMomma on June 20, 2012 03:43:55 PM
That's awesome. I love how he's juggling the googly eyes.

I didn't know there was so much in the gallery already!  I love all of the pieces.  The creativity is staggering!
I received from my partner Jennden today.


Isn't it gorgeous?  I couldn't capture the shimmery paint she used no matter how many photos I took.  The eyes are so mesmerizing.  The leaves and the heart are slightly raised, too.   


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery

Wow!  The gallery is filling up with such pretty pieces.   :)

And here's another pretty one!    This was done in watercolor pencils and is a new medium for her.  I think she did a lovely job.  :) 



I love the feeling of serenity I get from looking at it.   :)  Thank you!


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: Gr33nT3a on June 21, 2012 02:49:08 AM
So many new pieces already!

- Rainbow - I love that there are negative words on the black raindrops. I didn't notice it the first time I looked at it.

- Googly eyes make everything better! Plus the composition is so good.

- That window is adorable. What an awesome use of lace and color.

- The eyes are very pretty with all the colors in the iris. Big and shiney.

- The last one totally looks like a sunset here in Hawaii. All orange with the water slowly turning dark.

I also received today and am very excited about it. I will try and post pictures tomorrow when I have some light.

Sylwa- the post office is around the corner from me... I just happened to be working at a job site that with traffic is about an hour away... ugh. BUT I went and got it today and I am in LOVE! Thank you so much!!!! I am going to get it framed when I go get all my HeroesCon stuff framed next week. Here is the picture I have (if you have a better picture, feel free to post!), its based on a game Sylwa plays called Tera:

It is Acrylic and Watercolor!
I hope you enjoy the one I sent you, its acrylic and oil on wood. <3.

Post by: Sylwa on June 21, 2012 10:07:35 PM
Sooo glad you liked it, Burstofpanties. ANd I am also glad your PO isnt too far :)
I cannot wait to see yours on Sunday, hopefully!

HEre is the picture I have of my piece


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: karwash on June 21, 2012 10:36:23 PM
I received but I am not able to post a picture right away since I am not at my own computer at the moment. I will get it up as soon as I can. I just wanted to let the lovely artist know that their beautiful piece of art had arrived.

Everything in the gallery is great so far. I like how different it all is.  :)


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: Gr33nT3a on June 22, 2012 03:04:35 AM
I received yesterday but didn't have time to post pictures until tonight after I got home from work.

Here it is!



At first I thought all the beads were just glued on, but I took a closer look and they're sewn!! I can't imagine how long this would have taken.



Even the words and little designs are stitched on. I thought the Hershey label was really cute with the squiggle cut too.



My partner also said that I would get bonus points if I knew where the quote was from. Sadly, I'm horrible when it comes to movies and have no clue. Any fellow crafters want to help me out?


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: llisaredd on June 22, 2012 10:00:29 AM
I received! My partner was loves2experiment again. We were partners in the last round so when I saw her name and address I knew who my partner was right away  :D And lucky me! Look what I got!



I love it! This will be going up over my sewing area in my craft room. Thanks so much loves2experiment :D


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: IdlersDesign on June 22, 2012 11:13:09 AM
Wow this gallery is already so full of fabulous pieces of art!
And I'm adding more, because I received from my mystery partner today...



Somehow I didn't manage to get a sharper pictire, so dear partner, if you have a better one feel free to post.



Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: fancybutch on June 22, 2012 01:12:57 PM
Great painting Sylwa.
Another gorgeous multimedia piece, loves2experiment, yours is wonderful.
And the mystery piece in the Miro style, very cool.


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: burstofpanties on June 22, 2012 03:41:12 PM
Sylwa, I went today and got a mini frame for it! Going to hang it up on my wall!!! Your's probably arrived today! ;-)


Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: BigBangMomma on June 22, 2012 04:12:29 PM
I  received today from my "mystery" partner......Gr33nT3a.....and she sent me this beautiful Hawaiian inspired piece (since she's living there!)




Isn't she beautiful? She sketched it out in pencil, then filled it in with watercolor. She left the edges for me in case I'd like to frame it! I'm not sure how I want to frame it yet, but I know where it's going. Thank you!!

Oh, PS....Gr33nT3a....the movie quote answer is 50 First Dates (located in Hawaii, fittingly!), and it took me about 6-8 hours on the beading...I did each bead individually. There are not any strings of beads!  I'm going to make myself one to put in a hoop....



Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: jasminewolverine on June 22, 2012 04:40:34 PM
Still loving the art! My DC number says my partner received on Wednesday, I am eager to hear if she likes it! I haven't received yet but I'm still eagerly waiting :D

Post by: Gr33nT3a on June 23, 2012 05:59:59 AM
OOh I like the wings on the one posted earlier.

The geometric design on is also fab. I don't know how you got the lines so uniform.


Here is also a picture of the mermaid I made that shows the colors a little better:

OH man, I love all these pieces, and I adore the variety.

And YAY, I'm happy you like your piece crazyda; it had to live in a drawer for awhile because I kept doubting that it was good enough...so I'm quite giddy at the mo. ;D

pinkleo I love that piece, how did you do the background?
Thanks!  The backround is layers of watercolor with salt added when it was still wet. 8)

I received from Jenn90000 over the weekend.


I love it! I have to apologize for the crappy pic, my camera is out of commission so I had to use my scanner.   I think she used craft foam as a base.  Very neat little stitches!  She even included a pop-tab hanger.  Love it!  This will be a perfect addition to my crafting space.

Thanks again Jenn90000

just received this great piece from Suereal.

I love all the textures and techniques!  It's on a felt background, fabrick, paint, sequins, stitching, and a clear puffy dimension? 

Great detail and so much fun, thanks Suereal!



Title: Re: 4x6 Art Swap Round 3 Gallery
Post by: suereal on June 26, 2012 10:15:15 AM
I'm so glad you like it fancybutch.  I had loads of fun loading it up with techniques.  I was going to just do the heavy thread painting, but it just wasn't popping like I wanted it to, Besides, I was worried the bindi (from craftylittlemonkey on going stash supplie boxes that she sends me ;D) would not stick on the fabric long, so I thought of the Diamond Glaze.  Wonderfull stinky stuff.  It stays a bit flexable, so it shouldn't crack...at least I hope not.  This is the first time I have used it this way though...

And now I get to show y'all the cute fluffy 4X6 art that fancybutch sent to me



I just love it.  The title is "Sheep Happens" and it has been raining sheep around here recently ;D.  It also reminds me of my wee dogie Cosmo.  One of the animals he likes to impersonate is a sheep.  He's a poodle, so I shear him more then cut his hair ;D

Thanks a bunch fancybutch.  It's going right up on my wall after I get this part done ;D

PS. Cute name covering monsters thanks to picmonkey

Everyone has received such beautiful art.  (Stupid mailman...I want my art, you had better bring it soon).

Oh well, I guess I am still (not so) patiently waiting for mine.  International mail is soooooo slooooooow, but usually worth the wait :) .

Everyone has received such beautiful art.  (Stupid mailman...I want my art, you had better bring it soon).

Oh well, I guess I am still (not so) patiently waiting for mine.  International mail is soooooo slooooooow, but usually worth the wait :) . 

I will be in again next round.

UGH!!!  I hate that you don't have yours yet!!!  Seriously could have driven it to you faster myself!   So irritating! 
I do hope you like it once it arrives :)

I agree in the we need to do this swap again!  I'm officially hooked!
 

I agree. I have ideas for rounds 4 and 5 already in my head, but after seeing all the neat techniques, I picked up some art supplies yesterday to try out some things completely new to me....good thing I've got some time to play around---can't wait for round 4....I'm hooked as well!

Hi Ladies,

I have to say I absolutely love every piece of art posted here!! I also want to apologize for not being more active this round - family visits back to back took all my time.

Also, I messed up while giving feedback (typos) so 5 of you have 2 4x6 round 3 swaps on their profile now, once I figure out how to fix it I will. So sorry for the trouble  :-[

That happened to me in a previous swap. I think you need to send a trouble ticket to the help desk and they will remove one of the extras.

It happened to me once too.  And the help ticket was what I did to get it cleaned up ;D

I received from the lovely and talented Ms. jasminewolverine. Check out the awesomeness!



Isn't it pretty? I love the 80s inspiration. She reminds me of Jem and the Holograms.

Thank you! I love it!

Jem..is truly outrageous.

Truly, truly, truly outrageous.

           :D

I had to go listen to the song after seeing the art from Ms. Jasminewolverine. It is so so happy looking.

...and now I shall have that song stuck in my head for days.

Yay!  I received a gorgeous piece of artwork by llisaredd!!  I adore it!  It will look wonderful in my office!  The colours are more vibrant in real life :D  Lisa, thanks so much for making such beautiful art!  I'm so glad that we're partners (again!) for this round! :)

how long does it usually take for a moderator to fix my mistake??  It wont let me update the feedback and still 2 swaps for 5 of you  >:(

:-\ They're usually pretty quick once you open a help ticket, but I bet some might be away vacation. 

I'm one of those that have double swaps (though both are positive so no worries or hurries for me); I did notice that UntouchableFace is spelled Untoubhableface in my second entry.

Whoo Hoo.  My art came today and it was definitely worth the wait.  Sent to me by NH822 I received a lovely crafty themed piece.  It has many different materials and it is wonderfull.  I am excited my first swap piece is so memorable.

It is a little funny, she put buttons on mine and I put buttons on hers.  I guess great minds think alike.  This will be the first piece to hang in my new craft zone, once it is ready.

Thank you NH822.

I can't be the only one working on my piece for round 4, can I?? Hehe. I wanted to get something entirely new to me, and so far it's looking great!  I think this swap is by far my favorite!!

cinnamon teal, I am glad you liked it! I was hoping it would go to someone who could appreciate the ridiculosity of the 80s :) Jem was my idol when I was a kid!

I am also tossing around ideas for my Round 4 piece, johnson.mom2two! This has been my favorite swap too, because it is so low-stress... plus I am slowly filling up my art wall in my studio! :D

Well it looks like we are winding down this round. Everyone in my group has sent and received and I am working on getting feedback to everyone.

So when do we want to start the next round?? I can organize again- unless someone wants to take the reins.

Can we hold sign ups for at least a week? A nasty storm went through my area and Ive been out of power since Fri and will probably be out for several more days. I really want to be in rd 4 but don't want to miss sign ups bc I cannot send in my q via my phone. I have bad cell service and it's hard enough to just check in occasionally right now.

Wow, you all have done such amazing things with this swap! Seriously a lot of diverse talent, thanks for posting, it was fun to spy on your work!

For me a couple are really memborable, jennden the eyes, foxyblue your woman and a recent post the hot air balloon!

I got home from vacation to this very cool piece of art from Kwality570


I'm not sure if she used some kind of punch or if she cut it out on her own. Either way it is very cool.
It reads " WE ARE ALL IN THE GUTTER BUT SOME OF US ARE LOOKING AT THE STARS"

Thank you I love it!!
