Remember the mystery pic of the "nails"? Well now all can be revealed.
I am part of a creative art group, the QB5's, and our last swap challenge was to make a 6 x 4" with a childhood theme. Each item could be made with whatever we liked, but each had to contain a picture of ourselves as a child. Each of us has a different style, and all the swap items have arrived now, so I can show them to you...
This is Linda's, she loved books and horses as a child can you tell? The little pocket on the back held a wee library card with lots of info about her childhood. The layered book pages also had wax on them to give them a lovely finish. Thank you Linda!
The next little treasure was Nathalie's, ain't she sweet? This creation was collaged using a vintage postcard and stamps that tells how proud she is of her heritage! Thanks Nathalie!
Then there is Patty's. She couldn't play this round, but sent us an ATC on the theme, I wonder what it is about Patty and I that we both have our tongues sticking out? Cheeky do you think? I think this would make a lovely little broach! Thanks Patty!
And then there was this card made by Margaret, I love her collages and her words and her colours, I just don't have the same talent when it comes to paint brushes and glue! This is her and her brother, aren't they a great pair!
And lastly here is my creation, I tend to like to play with fabrics, and was a little adventurous adding ribbons and beads and some antique lace. I was always in my gumboots as a child, loved playing outdoors.
Nathalie has made a wee hanger for mine from a test tube with tiny buttons, hooks etc... in it. How cool is that!!
And Patty has used an old fork to hang my art on! It looks perfect!
