4x6 Art Swap Round 2 - Gallery

Oh, that piece from Reinikka is just darling! I love the positive message. :slight_smile:

I received my piece from @Smmarrt ! I love it so much and green is my favorite color so it makes it even better.


The lighter looking spots on the leaves in the photo are actually a fun metallic/holographic type of paint. Sooo pretty!
Thanks so much for the amazing artwork!!!

That is such a neat peice!

That is so cool @Smmarrt!! I love the dimension from the sewing and buttons, and the beautiful greens!

Thanks all - it is alcohol ink on deli paper. The sparkly bits are an ink called “Rainbow” from Marabu.
The deli paper was decoupaged onto fabric to make fabric paper.

Can I be mad that something mailed WEEKS after magnets got to you first?? What’s going on with your postal service? :crazy_face:

Yeah, it’s so weird! I tried to check the tracking for the magnets and it doesn’t look like the fun time when the swedish postal system held a package hostage at least… But who knows? Maybe it took a slow boat here.

After a leisurely two week journey, my piece arrived! From @geekgirl.

Based on a video by Gerda Van Dijk. The gang on the Paper and Mixed Media Craft-along have been Zooming and creating together, following different YouTube artists and their page techniques. I need to try this!

I knew who my partner was when I saw the envelope!

Thanks so much!

Sorry about the dark picture! Fair weather days aren’t happening and I don’t want to wait any longer before showing off what @Lynx2Lancer sent me. It’s a zentangled hummingburd picture she made. It’s printed and then colored in. Such a fun idea! It was a nice touch to finish the edges with washi tape. The art I sent wasn’t as nicely finished…

It’s currently living in my craft room, brightening up my IKEA pegboard :slight_smile:

Thank you so much!

You’re welcome! Here’s a picture I took:

I struggle with lighting at my house, too, so I understand.

I got this amazing collage from @PrincessP. I love the coloring and it’s done so neatly. Absolutely phenomenal! I have a piece of mushroom artwork in my kitchen that this is going to be put up next to. I just need to rearrange a little first.
We also agreed to do a person al swap for one of her LC patches so she sent that along. It’s been a crazy month so far with two of my cats requiring vet assistance, but I will get my half of the swap to you soon! Sorry it’s taking so long and thank you for such an amazing art piece!

@geekgirl your artwork is fabulous,I love the colour choices and all the intricate textures!

@Lynx2Lancer your hummingbird is beautiful! Wonderfully colourful and energetic!

@PrincessP that fungi collage is gorgeous! The depth you achieve in the colours and layers is great!

I got my lovely artwork from @Annchen today! :smile: It’s in oil pastel and so vibrant and happy! She also sent a cool little art postcard.

It goes really well with the blue wall and other bright swap treasures from lettuce friends in my studio.

Thank you so much!
