why I swap

 I why I swap. 

  Because you meet the most interesting people. That's why! You get to swap your art with others, learn from them
and they get you.They understand.  That it IS important for you to have every color of glitter or boxes of paper scraps.
And you DO need more scrapbooking paper.  
As you don't have THAT shade of Green in your collection.

This week I received swaps back from Carmen.  A fellow ( ATC swap crazy, I need that craft supply ) Artist.  

She asked to join the Blissfull Swap group and she had the BEST  ( I would love to be part of your group ) inquiry letter I have ever received.

 It was funny, smart and told me, I had found a kindred spirit.

 and A very talented Artist ...   Yes that IS a Fan made from five ATC's

Be still my heart..  a faerie with hand-painted wings

and who can go wrong with the richness of Gold and black,  a beautiful Madonna and child set in a tiny shrine. 

 here's Carmen's blog  Go give her some LOVE

mash it up or Another mash up kit

 yes that IS it.... Another Mashup is title of the newest kit from Tumble fish studios  but it's hardly another mash up more a collection of stunning images. 

I decided on a digital piece first  but as the day wore on. I itched to get the glue out and an Artist trading card appeared.

 I have found my trading card muse again, it had been missing for a while.

 In light of valentines day and that after nearly two years my studio is unpacked...  Can we have a HIP HIP HOOray !  (Long story about moving house, ) but the point is that I'm back in my studio  and I now have space to have the computer in there too, so creating is super easy. ( Oh how, I have miss all my supplies ) I found some I had forgotten about ,  talk about it being like christmas and I will be surfing the Net again.

 I've missed my blogging friends  ( yes Miss Terri I'm talking about you ) 

 I have some artist trading cards to show you.  They are for the blissfull ATC swap themed Cherish. 

 They have a home to go to with Carmen  from http://papercraftgoddess.blogspot.com/
 The images are from itkupilli Imagenaruim  Art of love and Live Love, Fly. 
There's also some floral  picks. Oh you know, how I love christmas floral picks from Micheal's.  Also the metal accents are actually jewelry parts , who knew!

Deep blue sea

What is it about a mermaids that appeals to me so much? The blue colors ,the fishes and magic of Mermaids and Mermen. I was thinking about it and I really think its because of an early memory  of watching a old (1948) black and white movie.   I was at my grandparents house and I sat crossed legged watching Miranda and my addiction was born.

 here's the link  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5PKsv0oDrc
 It's No good fighting it I'm just going to go with the flow. 
and create mermaid inspired Artist trading cards when ever I feel like it  and see if I can find an copy of Miranda on DVD.  

 The three cards made a Triptych  which stand to show the watery scene.
