Here's a colour piece I made to send out in return for my call. I really like it - something a bit fun and possibly educational at the same time as shows you what different colours mean. I like having the words behind the big colour!

It all just drawing and colouring in but then art should be about fun and I had fun making this :)

In The Frame

This weekend i made ATC's for the in the frame swap on my UK ATC's group. I started on one with an idea i'd had and then the others just progressed from there. My favourite is the Frame in Frame one because the thought of a frame in a frame makes me smile, very much like when you get the mirror effect where its endless.

Not the best picture of these so I will sort out a better one as soon as possible but i look forward to seeing what other people have done and getting them at the end of the month.

On the my own swap front - only one person has signed up so far which is disappointing. It might end up just being a straight swap between us which would be a shame but I am still trying to round up a few more people :)

Last weekend's creativeness

Sunday I had fun bring creative as I had some time to just sit down and play around with things. Both were idea's i'd come up with on my travels, I think of so many things when i'm driving to work and such and the pain is I can't write them down because I am driving so I am sure many a good idea has been lost.

This postcard is for Frantic Mail Art in Ireland and I've been saving up ring pulls especially for this so was glad to finally have enough to make it. Their theme was fish and I wanted to do something a bit different. Fish scales are often very metallic and shine in the light which was where my idea came from. Now all I have to do is get round to sending it.

This ATC was an idea i've had floating around my head and I am going to play with a bit more in terms of flowers and brads as it means the flower can move - so I am sure this weekend I will have a bit more of a play on postcards and such.

It wasn't made for a particular swap and the
S P I N is there to indicate that it does spin. Hopefully when i do send it out it will go to someone who enjoys it as much as I did making it. It also gave me the chance to play with some rub on's i had bought and been wanting to use for a while!!!

Hosting my own swap - very excited

Thats right, stacey on the UK ATC group has asked me to be the monthly swap host this month and so I am doing a Dr Seuss swap this month which I am very excited about as it will be my 1st swap as a host plus i love Dr Seuss. Only 1 person signed up so far but hopefully more will sign up cos i want it to be a great sucess.

Here's a couple of ATC's I made - the button one was originally for a button swap but mine got lost in the post and came back to me so i missed the swap but have instead sent it for a blind swap I am doing with a lady in America. The other one I made especially for the swap.

I recently bought some new card and paper and also i popped in a couple of craft stores looking in the sales - got a couple more stamps and inkpad cheap as well as some ribbon and stickers. Hopefully make use of them soon!
