1  Re: Winter Book Swap 2019 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by alteredmommy on: December 16, 2019 04:03:06 PM
Yay Canada Post came through and delivered my package from Wulf today!  First off are the books and chocolate that will be hidden away for later!

The Book of Eve looks interesting and Margaret Atwood poetry!!  No word of a lie I was just reading a short story book of hers the other day and had idly looked at her published works list in the front and wondered why I hadn't every read any of her poetry.  I can't wait to dig into both of these!

To be honest I could not figure out what this was when I opened it but once I read Wulf's card it all became clear-its an alleyway that goes between books on a bookshelf!  How freaking cool is that!!!

I was amazed that I could get such a good up close pic of the alley in this weak winter sun, look at all the little shops!  and cobblestone street and windows and end of the street perspective!

Thank you Wulf for such a wonderful end to my swapping "career" on Craftster-it has been so great swapping (and visiting) with you over the years Smiley

And a big thank you to our hostess with the mostess kittykill  Kiss

BigBangMomma sent her original pkg to me in 2 envelopes which arrived a week apart, in the meantime she sent a replacement in case the last one went permanently astray so i had a lovely surprise in my mailbox today!

Thank you!

This was a great swap, I love seeing everyone's techniques from stamping, bubblewrap and other things as well as the gelli plate!  Hopefully everyone will share what they do with their fabric swatches Smiley

So much coolness in this gallery!  My happy mail from Smmarrt arrived today, just in time for weekend art fun Smiley

fantastic stenciled envelope!

the nifty stickon postcard backs to make a postcard out of anything and a paper sampler -love the collage cover and that I can add more papers if I want

inside the sampler book and another folder with altered tickets and an ATC that says "Pick up your paintbrush and colour your world (is totally going on my painting wall) **note the proper Canadian spelling  Grin

inside the folder with the cute paper doll, bits and bobs and a bookmark

Thanks Smmarrt for all the happy inspiration!  And a big thank you to our organizer, this was a fun swap  Grin

8  Portable Family Portrait in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by alteredmommy on: April 01, 2019 01:39:17 PM
With my new mark making discovery I thought I would make a little family portrait for my caveman to take on his long hunting/gathering journeys.  Good to remember the fire at home and warm bodies around it am I right?

Even included the furry animals that share their warmth in the cave

signed the back with fancy colour mud

a little piece of the cave wall will be comforting while roaming the prairie, with bonus ability to win at game!

9  I make marks! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by alteredmommy on: April 01, 2019 10:52:44 AM
So I was cleaning out the old firepit after roasting the evening meat last night and you know how that goes....covered in black stuff, then I touched the cave walls and well black all over them too  Tongue  Then I had a eureka moment and picked up my fire poking stick and used the black end to make marks!!!!  This is an evolutionary game changer for the weekly grocery list!!

BEFORE:  Grocery list on the ground where uncaring people (not mentioning any names but geez kids) walked all over it

AFTER: Grocery list on the wall!

I can see sooooo many applications for this amazing discovery!

I received this fantastic 6 x 6 acrylic pour from curiousfae!  Loving the gorgeous colours so much, like a really cool galaxy.  Acrylic pours are so fascinating to look at and I can't wait to hang this beauty up!  You're going to have to tell me what magic mix you used to get such good cells, I haven't tried pouring yet but have been watching lots of videos with so many different recipes.

Thanks for the awesome art partner Smiley
