I've been making these sweet little ladies in earnest lately getting ready for ArtFest at the end of March. I guess trading pieces of art is a big thing there. I wanted to have something unique and that fit my style. So I used several different papers from the new Basic Grey lines (love them all!!) and made these paper rosette brooches (they have a pin on the back). I put a vintage picture of a little girl holding two toad stools in the middle and as you can see added a bit of ribbon, or crepe paper or both as a "tail". Used lots of fun vintage stuff from my collection. Each one is a little bit different.Since I'm having so much fun making these, I thought in the spirit of ArtFest, I would host a swap here on my blog. It would be a one-for-one swap. You will get one of my little cuties here and in return I would ask of you any kind of your art- your style (could be an ATC, collage, mixed media art, fabric, papier mache..etc.) you choose. The one caveat is that I would like to have a spring display in my home of the art work I recieve. Since I am really into the toad stool, woodsy, flowery, birds/egg/nest stuff lately, I would like it to be along that theme...whatever way YOU want to interpret that. Sound good? Anyone interested? I'm thinking that we'd send to each other by mid-March so that I can have them before I leave for ArtFest. I think it will be fun:) Wanna play?
