Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

I hosted the most recent round of chunky page swap and as everyone has received my pages, I wanted to share my work here. I loved all the different topics  Smiley

This was done with fabric paint and watercolors to achieve a textured outline with the color filing in. I really love how it turned out.

My first attempt at the zetti style. I think I'm in love  Grin I used sharpies, tissue paper, a page out of a french book, clip art, etc.

I found some butterfly wings at the dollar store and ran with this one. I love how the buttons make up the body. Another zetti-esque attempt.

This was made from a couple of pages of Hebrew text glued together and then drawn on with sharpie and colored markers. Then I cut out the leaves, birds, and hearts and glued them on. Modged podged like nobody's business and voila! The only thing I'd redo is that the text under the tree that reads "all you need is love" is hard to notice and I didn't think to add it until after I modged podged so it didn't show up very well. Oh well. Live and learn.

This was a fun one to make. Watercolors and sharpies with some clip art wings for fun. I also used some netting for the border and some swan feathers I found in the neighborhood.

Comments and crit welcomed! I can always improve and I mean to  Cheesy Thanks!
