I am in a private ongoing swap with Barb, Lucy and Glenda.. we are working our way through Kelsey O'mullanes book of ATC techniques.. this one is #39 Texture Paste

Denise Phillips regularly runs swaps from her Birdnuts Blog - this time was for a triptych of twinchies... using images from Crowabout Studio's... this is my submission....

Also on Paper Traders  - I took part in their 8th anniversary project - of an altered book reliquary, with the number 8 or 8 of something on it......

I am still working on the ArtQueens Textured Tags.. and am about to start a chipboard art doll for Paper Traders too.... and my collab book from the Arty Oz swap is on the way home... looking forward to seeing what everyone did :).. 
What a difference a few months make...last year I had no arty mojo and I was sooooo over swaps.. not enjoying them... I took a good long break and am now totally loving them again :)
