painted papers - part 1

Feast your eyes - the painted papers have started arriving and they are LUSH.

Christie said once she started making papers she had a hard time stopping, and so she sent nine!

 Colleen's papers have amazing depth to them.  She included her "recipe" on the back of each one.  (the second one involves coffee!)

 I could get lost in the layers upon layers of paint and stamps on Currie's yummy papers.

Gina S. joins our swaps for the first time with these great papers.

and another first time swapper, Jackie, sent these three beauties.

Leslie sent deli papers printed on the gelli plate

Here are three from Peggy - check out all that doodling detail on 
the third one!


Gorgeous, aren't they?
You've got until July 8th to make and mail your own.
Swap details and links to some tutorials can be found here.

non-paper postcards part 3

All of the wonderful non-paper postcards went out in this morning's mail.
I love my postal workers.  Today the incredibly sweet & patient Kristen helped make sure I had proper postage on everything, and she got a big kick out of your creativity.

I realize I never posted the last batch of pictures from the swap.

Here are 3 fabric and acetate cards from Carlene:

And here are five cards from Trula:
This first one is duct tape, the next two are fabric and the last two are fused plastic bags.



This was a really fun swap.  I've already had people clamoring for a repeat, saying now that they've seen all the pictures they have lots of good ideas.
Maybe we'll do it again toward the end of the year!
