wow, i don't check the thread for a few days and it explodes!
just_lisa, the greens are gorgeous! is that ripped brown paper behind the photo? i love the stamped phrase "love stories never have endings", and i'm dying to know where you got that calendar page from!
neverseenblue, the colours are so bright and fun! you did an awesome job with the bottlecaps (are they filled with something? what?), but i think my favourite part is the map as the ground... that's so cool!
squirrelgirl, wow! that's fabulous! i love all the drawing you did (i second the question of what you used!), and the colour you added to the photo itself. i like the button flowers - their stems look like they've got a neat texture, what are they made of?
squirrelgirl again! wow, such a bright and and happy page! is that foil in the upper right? what does it say below "loving"? the house is so cute!
i got an AMAZING piece from neverseenblue!! it's so beautiful!
it has a really cool texture to it, it looks like she used cheesecloth or something like it, but painted it brown. and the upper part doesn't have cheesecloth, but has the print of it, which is very cool! i love that you used multiple pics, and that one of them is in sepia, but my favourite part was a total fluke!
in the text of the ripped paper across the bottom, it says "and mrs. jenning". this picture is of my mom's paternal grandmother, but my mom's maternal grandmother was a jennings before she got married! see, total fluke! but very very cool!
thank you so much neverseenblue, i'm sorry it took me so long to get this posted!!
EDIT: i forgot all about the extras! neverseenblue sent me two super awesome postcards/photos of her artwork! they're so pretty, i need to find picture frames for them, because they're totally going to be hung up in my studio!
