This morning started on a sad note when a young Robin died after flying into my patio windows.
I had thought about a bit of taxidermy but then remembered I am not good with bad smells and maggots etc,so the Robin has been placed in a quiet corner of the garden so that nature can reclaim him.
I received the second envelope from Deedee in California today with the last of her Bluebirds.
So I now have 3 most wonderful ATCs
I will let the photos do the talking as they are absolutely perfect.
I am about to write about the matchboxes I have made for Trine and Lorraine for the swap hosted by Palma over at http://milliande.ning.com/
So Lorraine and Trine if you want it it to be a surprise read no further.
Palmas prompt was to do matchboxes with the prompt Symbols or something we use a lot in our art. I chose eyes .
I did a double decker matchbox
And this is the contents
A Tim Holtz ticket die cut with images of eyes added.
Bottle cap with sticky tape transfer and ribbon attached
Plaster of Paris face
Bottle cap with eye image and Glossy accents
2 shrink plastic charms using the same eye image
A shrink plastic image of a eye test chart (TIM HOLTZ )
A sticky tape transfer.
The matchboxes were decorated with images relating to eyes.
Lorraine and Trine I hope you like them.
