I signed up for my second and third Swap. If you have been reading this blog for a while, you may remember that I did my first swap last June, taking part in a Birthday Configuration Swap with Amy of Inspired Co. You can read about the project- shown at right- here. The current swaps are 1)Five Christmas Cards and 2)a Vintage Inspired Ornament. The cards….not so sure what I will be making. but I finished the ornament yesterday and I made one for myself.
The ornament exchange is through the Milliande Art Community. I had a hard time deciding what exactly I wanted to do, I mean "Vintage Inspired" can be so many things, but I think what I came up with looks pretty cool.
|Sorry this Picture is so dark but It was my 4th try and frankly I am over it.|
This cone was made with vintage music paper, contemporary feather trim, green tinsel trim and pieces of tinsel. The rhinestone broach is also vintage. I will fill it full of peppermint candies and send it off as soon as I am notified of whom I am swapping with.
I shall be back later with the Card for the exchange. Later… as in "after I design the card". Oh, and after I figure out exactly who is running that exchange… Shhh! Don't tell anyone I can't remember….it makes me look flakey.
