1  Re: Mixed Media Valentine Swap Gallery: Part Deux (SENDOUTS EXTENDED TO MON. FEB. 6) in The Swap Gallery by SonjaBoo on: February 21, 2018 05:15:57 AM
Such lovely hearts! Great job all!

I received a darling heart from Annchen -- check it out! (Note -- I was trying to load my photos in Tapatalk, but it won't recognize this gallery for some reason. So if these come out sideways for you, I apologize!) Annchen, if you are able to post photos in a normal fashion, please feel free to do so!

Annchen sent along this sweet heart flower and leaf to display in an adorable vase! I love this idea so much! It's sitting in my living room as we speak. Cheesy


And a peek at some of the extras that she sent along -- yummies!


Thank you so much for a lovely swap, Annchen!

And with that, I believe we are all done with this swap! Everyone should have feedback -- if you don't, please let me know. Thanks so much for swapping hearts!

2  How Do I Love Thee? With Paper Mache in Valentine's Day by SonjaBoo on: February 13, 2018 10:23:55 AM
I made this paper mache heart for Annchen in the mixed media heart swap. I have been itching to play with some paper mache lately, so this was extra fun to put together!



I used a piece of cardboard as the base, then layered the paper mache on over that. I poked holes for the hanger, and let it dry overnight. The heart is painted with Golden liquid acrylics, which are my new favorite paints ever.



The poem is one of my favs by Elizabeth Barrett Browning it was in an old book in my stash that is now used for craft projects.



I left the back plain but colorful so it can be reversible.

Thanks for checking it out!

3  Snarky Valentine -- Hot Bob in Valentine's Day by SonjaBoo on: February 07, 2018 07:38:06 AM
As part of the "Be My Snarky Valentine" swap, I made this little shrine for my partner, rackycoo.

Just try to restrain yourself, ladies.



When Bob starts baking those cakes -- or doing any form of cooking, really -- he's a total chick magnet.

Here's a side view:


The back, sides and inside backing are covered with a red/white harlequin patterned paper. Pink dresden edging is around the, uh, edges. Red heart sequiny-bling stickers were added to each side. And a Japanese cake eraser ended up being the perfect accent for the top.

I also sent along a little card for rackycoo to share with a sweetheart. (The photos were taken in my dark craft room, unfortunately. But you'll get the idea.) Check out these two crazy kids!


And the sentiment inside:


Thanks for looking!

I received a delightfully snarky altered tin from rackycoo and let me tell you, she set the bar high. (See what I did there?)

I love this gal here so much she gets to the point:





And a perfectly snarky card accompanied it:


Thank you so much rackycoo! She has a place of honor in my craft room already.  Kiss
