Today I completed a few collages for my 365 project.
#192 - Dahliance - all papers from my bits and pieces basket on my work table.
#193 - Iced Drinks - this one is a postcard going out soon
#194 - Flight Lines - envelope & ephemera layer then pattern pieces & stamped tissue, butterfly on top
#195 - Pocket - envelope pieces for background, pattern pieces layered then focal image. After #194, I had the idea to manipulate the direction of the pattern lines and make a jumble of lines.....only partially successful here....
After my collages I worked on some upcoming MMSA swaps - there have been plenty of times where I mail my contributions on the very last day but not this time. This time I'm working way ahead because I know I have a couple of busy weekends coming up.
Bookmark swap - mail deadline Jul 22
ZINE swap - mail deadline Jul 29
Fish postcard swap - mail deadline Jul 31
I found some postage stamps from Australia with great fish on them so created the digital mosaic background then added a bigger fish and a quote....
ATC with postal theme swap - mail deadline Jul 29
You can read about all these and more open swaps at the Mail Me Some Art site - there's a Open Swaps tab at the top.
It's actually sunny and warm outside today so now that I've updated my progress think I'm headed outside for a bit of vitamin D. Hope you're all enjoying a delightful summer weekend.
