Here are some art pieces I have done for a couple of different art swaps on PDA Paper Digital Art ning forum.
This is page 5 for the Interpretations Book and pages group on PDA The theme for this page was Photogragh, I included a tag with the inscription about the photograph. Backside is completed with artist information and treated as another page so must be fully finished as well.
I used image reporductions, some designer papers for the backgrounds. Fabric frame is made from torn and knotted distressed fabric scraps, a combination of lace, and braid trim, and embellished with small paper roses. Backside has a vintage auto gasket used for the frame. Roses on the tag are hand made and rolled with fabric strips. Entire piece is distressed with a variety of inks and stains.
An ATC/ACEO artist trading card made for the ATC group on PDA for both challenge and swap with another partner. The theme was Journey and written on the back I wrote: A journey of 1000 miles begins with the first step. (author unknown)
I used a vintage map background, a lovely gypsy girl image reproduction,ribbon, braid, fibres, and beaded trim. Then attached the found little vase charm.
I can hardly wait to see the swap pieces I will receive back from both of my partners!
Thanks for looking!
