A little creation

I am participating in the Springtime Soiree Collage Swap hosted by Danielle. Of course, as usual, I wait until the last minute for everything...it is due in her hands by Tuesday, March 4 and I am just sending it today....but with priority mail, it should be ok.

Anyway, we just had to make a 4x4 collage with a vintage springtime theme (we make one, we get one back). I used a 4x4 piece of wood from the craft store - spray painted it white and used bottle caps for the vintage faces. I rubbed a twig/branch around the sides to make it appear older and I wrapped the sides and the hangy thing (!) with a piece of vintage velvet ribbon. I like it. It's sweet. (the pics are not that great, because I took the pic at midnight last eve, but you can get the gist).


I have also finished my projects for the the Daylight Savings Swap and the Sweet Little Nest Swap and will get those pics taken and posted by the weekend when I ship them out.

Lolly, we were thinking along the same lines! I just did a couple of small canvas pieces where I used bottle cap-faces! Trust me - your swap piece is INFINITELY classier! LOL! And I love the look! Your swap partner will be thrilled!
