I do occasionally make stuff for myself - not often since I am one of the Queens of Swapping.
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=421054.10#axzz2OnoTMWdQ

But I joined a card swap, I think I saw it on Pinterest, and decided to join. I altered a full deck, plus 6 extras, to send to Jessica Brogan, and I'll receive a deck of 52 cards from 52 different artists. Neat-o!

Her blog:  http://www.insearchofdessert.com/?p=8428







I collaged the fronts - Great way to use up all those teeny tiny scraps that are too good to throw away. No pics of the backs but I used a combo of scrapbook papers and altered papers, and each card has my name, email and 2013.









Each card should contain a quote or inspirational word - most of mine have images but this set did not.









I think I was supposed to choose only 4 quotes and use them over and over, but I have about 15 quotes that I use regularly in my other art endeavors, so there are many of my favorites included.

Thanks for looking!

These are so cool, I love seeing the favourite quotes of artists!  I'm also partial to the Picasso (close your eyes) and the Andy Warhol quote Smiley

This is breathtaking! Whoever gets one of these is one lucky girl (or guy). I can't choose a favourite, they're all awesome. I just wish some of the pictures were a bit bigger.

Thanks for the kind words. I got an email yesterday from the swap coordinator saying she received my box/submission. If all goes according to plan, at the end of April, I'll receive a box of cards from 52 other artists!

I'll post some pics when they arrive.

Yes, I forgot to add them. My preschool closes tomorrow (YAHOO!) so I will have two weeks to takes photos and post on Craftster.

I'm actually working on another deck - Inspiring Song Lyrics....John Lennon and Bob Marley, and maybe Adele.

I really like how you recycled the sewing pattern packages for your collage images on some of them.
Great project!

They are color copies - whenever there's a sale at Kinko's or the UPS store, I make a bunch.
My sister bought me 2 boxes filled with patterns, at a garage sale, and then mailed them across country. I try to use the tissue paper inside and save the envies for other projects.

Such a gorgeous project, I love how the colours bring it all together.  It's given me an idea to do something similar - I keep a list of "happy moments" throughout the year, currently it's just in a notebook but it would be nice to put them all onto a little card with some pics like this.  I probably have around 50 so far this year :-)
