Fourth of July ATC

I absolutely love the American flag. It's very beautiful. For this swap I took some striped and star printed scrapbook paper and turned them into a flag. Of course I had to make some modifications. With the grey and white striped paper I colored the stripes red and white with colored pencils. I added more stars with a white gelly pen to the blue and white star printed paper. To make it old looking, I crumpled the assembled flag, glued it onto some cardboard, rubbed black stamp ink everywhere, and sealed it with gloss medium.

Cheery Note and Flat Surprise

For this swap we had to send a cheery note and flat surprise placed in a decorated envelope. I used colored pencils and micron pens on all my work. Reading my partners profile she mentioned multiple times that she loves pugs.... So, I drew her one.
