Final January Swaps

January Quote of the Month

"Quote of the Month" will be an ongoing swap through the Yahoo group, CCSwaps. The challenge is to create something which reflects the chosen quote. This month I created a collage on a canvas board using a background paper which I made in a workshop taught by Bernie Berlin. The floral images were cut from a napkin and glued down. I am sending this to my friend Carol Sweeney from the state of Washington who came to Wisconsin last fall to attend the Raeven's Nest art retreat. We both took the background class, so I used a piece made that evening.


Winter Shadow Box

Continuing the winter theme (from a previous post!) I created a shadow box to Celebrate Winter. The background is from a Christmas card, and I used the image of the little girl for the focal point. Unfortunately, when I took the picture, the flash is reflected on the little girls hat - she doesn't have a headlight! This was a gift for my friend Chrissy Bornfleth, and I was able to hand deliver it to her. What fun!


Stuff in Your Stash

I ran a swap for CCSwaps called "Stuff in Your Stash," a challenge to use up those bits and pieces of things which we save but never use. The background is a leftover piece of acrylic painting practice, and the tag is from a set of tags I made a few years back; I had made severeal extra, but never used them. This is on its way to New Zealand.

This is such a cool card! I really drooled over it when I got to see it in person. Love the background trees from your acrylic
