Artist Swap Recap- What I Received

So the Artist Swap wrapped up about two weeks ago and everyone has finally gotten all of their goodies in the mail! It's been really exciting to see them begin to surface on the internet. If you participated, but haven't sent me any photos, I would love to see what you got/made!!! Here is the rundown of what I received in the mail. The items I made for others are soon to follow!

The Inspiration: FRIDA KAHLO



WHAT I RECEIVED:


I received this awesome shadow box/art piece from Lizette from CreativityLizette who I hosted the swap with! I am really excited to display this somewhere, but I don't have a ton of shelf space in my current apartment so I haven't decided on a home for this just yet. You can check out her blog and see more photos and read more about her process!


Because we had an odd number of folks participate in the swap, I went ahead and took on an extra partner to even things out which was both extra work for me and extra fun! You can see more work from my second swapper here on his blog!

Swap#2

The Inspiration: OLIVER JEFFERS



WHAT I RECEIVED:

I am so excited to get this framed and find a home for it! For those of you who don't know, I have an obsession with children's books as well as the art of illustration. I think illustration for children's books is a totally separate and unique form of art. It has to whimsical without being silly or tacky. That's a tough balance. Anyways, Oliver Jeffers is my favorite children's author that I have discovered as an adult. I really would love to own all of his books one day! You can check out his artwork here!

From Ear to Ear





I sat one day and made dozens and dozens of earrings. Almost all the earrings I have are from a single day when I just went earring crazy! They're definitely simple, but one of my favorites for that very reason. I'm really happy to have higher quality photos of them finally posted!

Back In Action


Finally returned this week from quite a long vacation and am ready to tackle the mountain of work that awaits me. While I was gone I had a new batch of materials arrive for some necklaces! I'm really excited and hope I can get them done before my super camp starts! Eeep!

In the meantime, here's a few vacation photos! Have a great week.
