All I can say about the swaps I was in, is WOW! Everyone went all out and created some absolutely beautiful pieces. I'll first show you the things I received.
One of the swaps was the Key to My Heart Swap hosted by Joanna. Everyone was to decorate a small canvas using whites, ivories and creams, and we had to include a skeleton key somewhere on the canvas. This is the gorgeous canvas I received from Cheryl Stoneham.
Thank you so much Cheryl, I ADORE it! And the saying you chose is SO perfect. I have this up in my bedroom and I love it there.
Another swap was Miss Jessi's Petite Canvas Altered House Swap. We were to start with a very small canvas...approx. 3x3 or 4x4, and collage it with an altered house. This adorably sweet canvas was made by Rebecca Gawryl. The colors she chose are so pretty ~ the flowers out front, the picket fence, love love love it.
The next swap was the Spring Maiden Crown Swap hosted by Bryanna. This is the amazing crown I received from Jody Bradshaw (I don't think she has a blog).
Jody, you did such an amazing job with this. I know my photo isn't capturing the incredible beauty of it, but it really is so beautiful, thank you so very much!
The last swap I was in was the Parisian Shadowbox Swap hosted by Jenny Morgan (I don't think Jenny has a blog either). This shadowbox was made by Bryanna. I'm going to post a few photos of this spectacular shadowbox because it's so unusual that one photo couldn't show you all of it. As you will see from the photos, it is just that...spectacular. Les Follies Bergere. She made the shadowbox out of a coffee can. The door to the inside was cut in the shape of a key hole.
Bryanna, I can't thank you enough. I know how much time, effort and creativity went into this, and I hope you know I appreciate every bit of it, and I absolutely LOVE it. Thank you!
