Baggie Swap

Joined an ATC yahoo group that does a lot of swaps. I just joined a "baggie swap" where you put four things in four baggies for someone else to use to create and ATC. Then you get four ATCs back, using the stuff you sent. Love it. Here are two of the baggies I am sending. Includes such things as: animal print wrapping paper, botanical print napkins, silver stars, fibers, netting "paper" small, flat rocks, feathers, fabric leaves cut from an old placement, etc. Looking forward to seeing what someone does with my "stuff." Had fun filling the bags. Looking forward to seeing what I get to create from someone else's stuff.

Art Doll

Feeling in a funk this morning and didn't want to do scholarly work. But my studio was calling and I thought I'd enter, guilt free. I pulled out the materials I've been saving for quite a while to begin an altered book on my literacy... something I've had students create in the past, but never did myself. Well, I have a start... I chose a book and began preparing it - taking out pages, gessoing pages.

I also made an art doll focused on my literacy - been wanting to do this for a long time. She is done. Isn't she great? I think I could get into making art dolls. She will go in my altered book.
