Asian Swap & More

Rosalie asked in the comments how I did the background for the altered calendar. For both the brown and red spreads I used Twinkling H2O's and did about 3 layers of colour. They work great because they are transparent so the calendar grid shows through. For the top sections I just used scrapbook paper for the background.

I treated myself to some art books this week! Artist Trading Card Workshop, Collage Lost and Found and Artful Paper Dolls. Love them all but the paper doll book is my favourtie!

Another deco landed here last week and I did my page. This was a tiny one with a simple theme of "collage".

And still working on my 4x6 swaps. This one was an Asian themed swap. I had fun with these!

I went thrifting today and will have some pics of the goodies I got later this week. I've also been working on a large piece. It is in the "almost" finished stage. 16" x 12", it is the largest one I've done to date. I have to say I find myself wanting to work bigger and bigger. One of these days I'll get my hands on a huge canvas and "have at it"!
