I'm back to working on some trades and the theme was steam punk in the Fiber Art Trader's group. We could use metal and whites with some felting, but no other colors. These are to be pins to be worn. I used a bug theme for this one. I added watch parts and some vintage jewelry. The bug was made from metallic polymer clays.
In my NING group, The Artist's Nest, we were to alter puzzle pieces.
I colored, stamped and used faces to make some unique puzzle people. I love their unusually large heads compared to their bodies. I used a clear dome over their faces to enhance it even more as if it were under a magnifying glass. They are addicting!
And lastly, my Art Is In The Cards group chose the theme of Grateful/ Thankful/ Gratitude. Somehow I had drawn this blank at first as all I could think of was the obvious, of being thankful for friends, family, shelter, food, etc., but I chose to pick up the not so obvious and other important things in life, thinking outside the box with a bit of humor. For a woman, things that would be important are spandex, botox, hair coloring, etc. Even an Ex husband, for if I hadn't had him, I wouldn't have been able to trade up! LOL I'm even grateful for Hippopotamus cause they don't make me look fat! I printed my list on a swirl printed vellum and over laid it on a silhouette to show through.
This was on the back side of my atc.
I also finished machine quilting a few quilts this past week.
This lovely baby quilt is so cozy and made with flannel!
What can I say, I love feathers and more feathers!
