365 in 2013: collages #192-

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
These are all on watercolor paper and have watercolor painting, gelli printing, doodling, etc.  I have quite a stash of gifted bookmarks so I'm looking forward to adding to that with this swap.

ZINE swap -  mail deadline Jul 29
This is the front and back cover of my little zine with a little digital magic.....if you want to see the pages, join the swap and maybe you'll get one.....

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.
