Weekend Crafting Marathon

My diningroom table was a mess this past weekend - filled with papers, paint, stencils, name it - I had it and was trying to work it.

Though I am a decorative artist, I've really tried to stretch this year by trying different things, which in turn inspires my painting.

There is a Yahoo Group, Art For The Creative Mind, where its no holds barred swapping of mixed media, ATCs, cards...they have even swapped dominoes! While not everything appeals to me, I do try and do things that are out of my comfort zone ... and this weekend I managed to complete some things.

An ongoing Altered Journal Pages swap. Each person in a small group must complete 2 6x6 pages with a different theme. Free Image Hosting at

These page are almost done...need to add more elements. I had a ton of fun doing the background on this one. Free Image Hosting at

Also, there was another swap that was a Valentine's Theme postcard. I love doing the postcards...and here's my swap for that one:Free Image Hosting at www.picturetrail.comFree Image Hosting at

This last little postcard isn't finished yet...but as you can see, I used the wrapper to the stamp book..LOLFree Image Hosting at

ALl of these I incorporated things I already had. Manilla folders for the 6x6 pages, watered down acrylic paint in spray bottles, even the postage stamp book cover!
