I hope cindibee doesn't mind (did you get my message cindibee? Smiley )but I'm gonna go ahead post pics of what I sent to her since she rec'd a while ago...!
Her theme is Dirigibles and Submersibles- a fun challenge for sure!
First the art, I did an ATC size submarine with a fun quote:

Then I painted a watercolour sheet with handwritten words all over it that she can cut up and use for her sketchbook:

I sent a bunch of ephemera goodies for her to use, and we also included other extras in our packages to use for any other projects we wanted:

Submarines and blimps or airships are hard to come by as far as art materials but I found a whole bunch of cool old images and printed them out, and some old vintage pilots, etc. from an old 50's british magazine I had, so she can use them however she wants- I think I did about 15 sheets full!

Then more paper goodies!

Now I can't wait to see what I get! Heehee!

I finally got started on my sketchbook this weekend- hooray! First I stripped the cover off- it was the supplied grey and boring. I thrifted a novel and used it's cover to replace it -though I haven't got the inside done yet- here's my cover! (And I replaced the sticker on the back where it's supposed to go...!) I'm leaving the back until I'm done as a "the end" once I have completed the inside....

I modgepodged it with some recycled kraft paper and made an ATC to go in the inset area. I'm going to use the sketchbook paper from the supplied book but modegpodge or glue it together with other papers to make the pages for the inside.
My theme is In Flight, so will based on me leaving my job to do my own thing- taking the leap!- but also around living your dreams and letting them fly!

5  You are inside my heart in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by foufigirl on: January 24, 2010 01:39:53 PM
Here's mine! I have had this little quote in my head for some time, and thought it was a perfect little secret to find inside a wee Valentine-y box...

I made the little box as I didn't have any matchboxes in the house, and then covered it in with red paper, stamped it and added the stitched heart on top.
When you "follow your heart", oooh what do you find...?

Inside is a magnet I made with a teeny print of one of my illustrations modge-podged onto a bamboo tile with holes drilled thru it, then I added a sparkley heart and beads and sequins wrapped thru the holes in the tile, like a little hug!

Heeheee!! I just got my amazing package from the incredible Rackycoo!! She is just such a wonderful swap partner and I got some awesome amazing things which I just LOVE!!! But anything from Racky, it's always amazing isn't it!? Look what she sent me.... our theme was "Retro Cosmo-Swillin' bad Girls"...
First, we both had the same Ikea frames on hand so we made art in the mattes that came with them and swapped.... this one is going right by my desk in my office...!! LOVE it!!!

Then, I had mentioned that I loved a piece she had sent to Phizzy (I think!) of little naughty ladies and she made me one too with little drinkie ladies! Heehee!! Sooooo cool! Going up next to my Cosmo queen art!

And she made me a sweet little Cosmo shrine, how awesome is this!!?

And we also swapped some supplies and look at the super cool loot I got! Some super fun rubber stamps, collage images and wee little frames (which I had been wanting to get!). I will have tons of fun with everything!!

Thank you soooo very much again Racky for everything- you are an amazing crafty Cosmo-licious girl!!!
