So what's new?

So what's new with you? Not much with me. Busy with life and stuff but still escaping into my art area as much as I can. Here are a few things I made lately for swaps or just for the heck of it.

Arty Slides International 2013

From our latest exchange ... what I sent ...
These are 35 mm slides repurposed - basically twinchies ... plus matching greeting cards and envelopes.

I had an extra that I sent to someone outside the Arty Slide network ...

And a few I've received back so far ...

From Stripygoose ... I adore the crocheted holder and Snooky borrowed it to use as a nose warmer.

Playing with Stripes!

With this as inspiration

The above image is from Letterself at Flickr.

I had some fun making a few 5 x 7 inch postcards ...

I like what I came up with but I want to try a few different things. I like how the original has figures - two forms glued to appear to be one, the man part of a stripe but his torso and arms cut out ... just a few kind of optical illusions that I didn't quite pull off.
