Future Artist..Sara

I had a wonderful opportunity to have a friends kids over yesterday.Rob and his lady Marla were over for a fish fry.They brought along the three kids.Sidney,Sara,and Jacob.They have seen my art craft room and of coarse the girls wanted to play.So I came up with the idea of making a necklace from the laminate counter pieces.They made some really cute stuff even Jacob.Each made a necklace for there teachers.Darn if I didn't get a picture of em but Sara did also make me a ATC and so here is the picture.I see a future artist here in all three of them.You know they also told me the school they go to doesn't have art class? I was shocked and sadened.

Art Doll

Here are the little piggies I made for the art doll swap.The doll was to be any thing flying.This was my first (ART DOLL).Yes I have made paper dolls but these are just a little different.I looked and asked around for some information on what the rules were,if any.The only rule I know of is the doll must be able to fold up to be the size of an artist trading card.So not being sure I made my little piggies the size of the ATC backround.The wings move and the bottom legs move.The wings were made out of some 2" wide ribbon I had.

It's All in the Packaging~

Now this was a fun swap to be in.I haven't gotten my six in return yet but I will be sure to add them and so you this unique swap.
The backing was made from the hard packaging plastic you get from the store and throw away.This was fun to recycle..I'm going to make some more!
