Jean's collage sheet challenge - part 2

Here is another group of cards created from Jean's collage sheet.
This sheet inspired a lot of people to work abstractly, and I guess that's what I like about these challenges - it pushes us to see in new ways.


Here are Ellen's geometric cards:

 


Gina created her signature eye on her first card:


Frances added some simple paint and pen embellishment to great effect:

Leslie took the triangular approach to her geometric abstracts.


Lucinda added paints and glazing and perhaps some image transfer (?) to her collage.




 I really really love being able to hold all of these in my hands for a while.  I study them, admire them, learn from them and get inspired by them.

  2. It's got to be so much work for you to manage all these swaps - keep track of which is coming in for which theme, make sure if a person sends 4 they receive 4, scanning, planning, etc. I can't even imagine (well, I can and that's the problem!)....But, now I see part of your reward. You get to see every single piece and that's got to be so much better in person than scanned (though I love the scanned images - I find inspiration all the time) In case no one has told you today - THANKS for all your efforts in making these run so smoothly and in keeping us all inspired! We all love you for it!

  3. Those are beautiful. I love the triangular ones.

    I'm not sure if this would be the right place to say this, but I received two green postcards in the mail today!!! Delighted, absolutely delighted to get them, and both of them are gorgous. Much much thanks to Coreen and Lorinda. Both of you do wonderful work. I learned from these two cards that the ones I have made and sent in are really too flimsy, so will have to do somethiing about that.

    And I agree with Terrie: Thank you for all the effort you put into these swaps.
