New Tag and Swap - Wrapped ATC

This is one of 2 tags I got in a yard sale - it started out as a red plastic tag with a clear back. I added lots of paper layers, paint, ink, crackle paint, grungeboard heart and star... The colors aren't as deep as in the photo. Not sure what I will do with it (like most everything I make) but it's fun to look at!

Here is the latest swap - for wrapped ATCs. I love all things bird (of coarse) and here is the ATC I did for my partner. This is closed and wrapped.
Unwrapped.
Open.

Alter Free Postcard

Another swap on Swap-bot is for altering free postcards. I got both these cards at the Flaky Tart in Atlantic Highlands. These cards are from local companies. The first one I did is the last one posted. I forgot to take a before shot. I made sure I did with this one.

This is called home.
This is called odd tomato.
So I take both cards outside so I can spray with a matte finish, and a few minutes later the torrential rains come. Fortunately, the spray worked - neither are worse for it. Just waiting to find out who to send to.

Make Your Own Postcard

This was a very cool swap on Swap-bot. You/your partner send an envie to their partner, and that person needs to make a postcard out of it. Should have photo'd what I got-newspaper clippings, magazine sheets, fish photos, vintage book pages, stickers, string, etc. This is what my partner will get from me. (The 13 is my donation) It's already to mail and I hope she will be happy with what I put together. The little sign is on the back between the message and address. I have to get my envie out to my partner (not the same person as the recipient of this postcard) in Sweden!

Flower ATC

Another swap on Swap-bot - this time for Flowers. I really liked the way the Bird ATC turned out so I did the same layout. Alot of Ranger products here! This is the front.
This is the front flat out.
This is the inside. Partners haven't been picked yet. I hope the recipient enjoys!

Fun at the BAC

I went down to Belmar on Tuesday for a class with Michelle from Ranger. Got to play with lots of Ranger items. Here is my collage - Mother Nature. I used magazine photo, stickers, embossing powder, buttons, stamps, paper flowers, inks and paint. Much fun!
