Here's what I sent my partner for the Spring Jar Swap. The front:
I took some tissue tape and applied it to the lip of the jar, and then added some lace on top of it. The top of the jar is covered with green tissue paper, a vintage pin and some paper flowers. I used butterflies to decorate the jar, one's from a napkin the other is stamped and colored by me.
Here's what I put in the jar:
some vintage jewelry, Easter stuff, and some candy.
I felt like I didn't have enough stuff in my jar, so I added some linens in the box.
I had an extremely fun time with this swap, I hope to do it again in the future.
Well over a month ago, Liz Mathews posted this project on her blog, she had at the bottom of the post said she would send her leftover heart pieces to the first commenter. I was the first commenter, I got them around Valentine's Day.
Here's my project so far:
I originally wasn't going to make a big piece like she had, but I couldn't find an smaller artist canvas to use. I started gluing the hearts on, then had to add hearts from my collection. When I was done with that, I thought I'd "lightly" go over it with alcohol inks, but I got too much on it. Then I tried fixing it by rubbing a red ink pad over it, and adding some vellum pieces to lighten up the color.
This is where I am, I don't know where I'm going from here. Anyone have any advice?
