I bet you folks are heartily sick of looking at my artwork but, honestly, that's about all I do in my spare time. :) And I have to record it somewhere before I mail it off.
Let's see...where did I leave off? I only have one swap to show you (YAY!). This one was a little different. It's called a Rolo because you do art on Rolodex size cards which have holes punched in the bottom to make them fit on an actual Rolodex...if you can find one. My cards don't have holes because I don't own a Rolodex punch, and don't intend to get one! Anyway here are my cards for the Rolo! swap. (This was an open theme swap, so I just made whatever I felt like making. Well, I did do a little research by checking out the various people's profiles to see what type of themes they like to collect and that gave me some ideas.)
Whoops! I found another swap that I failed to post on here. Sorry! This one is called The Tenth Annual Personal Profile PAT (Pick-a-Theme). There are 40 players but we are divided up into 8 groups of 5 people. I had to make a card for each of the other four players in my group, and I had to pick a theme by reading their profile information and learning about them and their personal likes and such. It was a fun way to get to know more about a few folks. Here they are.
This was a host gift card. She likes boardgames.
This lady is a Christian, and loves ballet. This was one of my favorite cards. I drew and re-drew those feet and I'm still not sure they're right, but I like how it turned out. :)
This gal likes dogs and writing.
One lady loves loteria cards. I'd never heard of them! But I can see why she does like them. They are decorated with lots of vibrant, colorful art. Are they lottery tickets? I'll have to Google that.
The last lady is a Snoopy fan, and she lives in New Mexico.
|I'll be posting finished versions of these later.|
|I decided to actually clear off my desk enough to do my painting there. I usually try to do it perched in my recliner leaning over to reach my paints on the side table. Not good! This was so nice!|
|Thanks to Jordan for this vintage makeup case. It works great to hold my acrylics and other odds and ends!|
Well, if you made it this far...BRAVO! Thanks for stopping by to see what I'm up to. Blessings on your week!
