Here's what I did for Emerald:

BEFORE:


AFTER:


Left Side:


Right Side:


I tried to compliment the existing picture, as well as reflect on the Victorian era.  I used a key cabinet from IKEA, took off the door and painted and embellished it to my heart's content.  The image of the woman on the left side is actually a picture of the artist who painted the original painting.  The typing in the bottom left corner of the box is a definition of the Impressionist movement - which this painting is from.

Emerald sent me an AWESOME picture too!  I'll post before and after's tommorow.

So Chibiichan got hers today & now I can post pics!!!

This is what she sent me:


This is what I sent back to her:


A close up:


The idea came to me when I was on a fashion website with models wearing "Jesus is my homeboy" t-shirts. I thought he needed a good reason to be with his crew.

The quote is from Leonard Bernstein & says"Music can name the unnamable and communicate the unknowable". It seemed very fitting.

The background is all scraps of fabric that I sewed together & painted over to bring it together. The dancing people are all random pics of people I know or from old magazines.

I'm so glad you like it Channon!!! I can't wait to hear what everyone else thinks!!

I just received my pic back from pamplemousse, and I LOVE IT!!
It's an awsome 70's throwback with this really cool knitted mushroom.
Thanks so much!


Yay! I'm so happy you liked it- I was worried it might be too over the top.

This is what silloh_77 sent to me:



And this is what I sent back:





I'm especially proud of my mushroom! This swap was so much fun!!! (and sorry for all the crappy pics- I don't know why I am so bad with a digital camera...)

Worthwilegirl's picture was sent out earlier this week, and should be there by monday at the latest. It's not nearly as awesome as hers! I had a super hard time with it, but all in all I guess it came out ok. Undecided

Channon you are CRAZY!! I got your picture this morning & I adore what you did to it!!

Here is what I sent to Channon:

And here is the lovely picture she sent me back:


and a close up:


I love that she took a crappy 70's-ish floral painting & kept elements of the flowers but gave it a totally vintage art deco feel! It is perfect!!!

Thanks so much Channon I really love it!

And here is what she sent to me! It is a fabric panel, stretched & mounted!
I keep seeing all sorts of craziness...

It's so odd, I may have fallen in love with it.

Okay, I guess this finishes off this gallery.... I got my piece from FinDpartie a while back, but haven't been able to post pics until now. Here it is, in all it's eerie glory! I especially love the eyes and the little door....Thanks again, Alex!
Yay! The end, folks.  Wink

Okay, I felt like being a real go-getter today so I went and got us a gallery for our art.  Here is the beeeyoootiful painting Poppet sent me.  I think it is early 60's post modern neo classical baroque paint by number.  But I may be wrong.
