IHSW ~ PM-Love is Kind

I joined the January IHSW at Random Ramblings. I haven't cross stitched PM-Love is Kind since September. This project has been put down so many times over the years that I'm making it my goal and determination to complete and make it into a pillow before March. There are other projects that need to be completed before I can start a brand new one.

Here is a before photo:

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

INCHIES - Year 2012

I started creating Inchies in April of 2012 through Swap-Bot. They are 1"x1" art cards. Almost like the ATC's, but a smaller version. They are a little more challenging because of the small space you have to work in. Fun... nonetheless.

ATC's (Art Trading Cards) ~ Year 2010

In 2010 I became member of a swapping site that I absolutely love... Swap-Bot. Swapping my art with people all over the world is very exciting. As I became more comfortable with the site, I learned how to create ATC's.... which is a short form of saying  Art Trading Cards. They are 2.5"x3.5" size cards you create your art onto. I use cardstock for front and back and cereal box cardboard in the center to make it sturdy. The artwork is created using Cardstock, Scrapbooking Paper, Stickers, Pencil, Pen, Colored Pencils, Watercolors, Calenders, Vintage Paper Dolls, Stamps, Tissue Paper, Magazine Clippings, Medium Gloss, Tacky Glue, and more. You can use any form of paper and cardboard, as long as it's the measurments specified above. Here are the ATC's that I created. There are some missing because I forgot to take a photo of them before sending them.
