I love signing up for swaps--cookie swaps, recipe swaps, gift swaps, art swaps! While they may seem a bit stressful due to the deadline and expectation, swaps can be a fun way to let yourself explore. I often use the experience as a way to try a new recipe or be more creative with my shopping.
For this artist trading card swap (ATC), I get to make 53 cards that are all different! It's quite freeing to have each and every card have a different feel or design. I'm sure several will have similarities when I feel inspired by a particular idea, but they don't have to be the same.
Here are cards 6 and 7 out of 53. The first has a watercolor background made with Twinkling H2Os and a glue resist. I love how planetary it looks. The second has a traditional string filled with patterns.
46 to go!
