Mona & Friends Blog Swap Update No. 4

Today it´s time for Mona herself to enter the stage of my blog, so here´s what she´s dreaming of when staring at the Louvre visitors gets too boring.As time is approaching, more and more of you participants get your cards finished and in the mail, and I hope the others will do that soon. Remember, the due date is July 15.
In the meantime you really should have a look at these fabulous entries by Xela, Barb, Ann, Janet, and Glenda. Hope you´ll get inspired by their fabulous ideas!

Paris Butterflies

This card started as an attempt in today´s Grungy Monday Tim Holtz technique, but as the stamp, the paper and the acrylic paint didn´t really work together, I dabbed over a different paint colour and added several stamps, and here´s the result. As I needed a birthday card just today, I´d call this a happy accident.

Mona & Friends Blog Swap Update No. 3


Here´s another of Mona´s sisters, Leonardo´s Lady with the Ermine, but she has found an ermine-sitter for one day as you see here to be able to follow her dreams.

You´ll find another version of this painting when you´re clicking through the entries of the other participants who have finished their entries - please go to the blogs of Marnie, Astrid, Wendy, and Abby to see their wonderful ideas.

One of you had to drop out of the swap, but eight of us already have their cards finished, and two sets are already lying on my desk. There´s exactly one month left before your cards have to be in my mailbox, so I´ll be sending an e-mail reminder to all participants today. Have fun creating, but do it soon!

Mona & Friends Blog Swap Update No. 2


It´s time for another swap update!

Botticelli´s Venus didn´t like standing around naked any more, so she decided to put on her garden clothes!
















And what are your Renaissance ladies turning into? Can´t wait to see more of your samples!

Look at Martina´s Steampunk ladies here to get an impression of the possibilities.


I´ve had three more sign-ups since my last update, so now we´re 21 players - but there´s still plenty of time to sign up and make your three ATCs for this swap! Please don´t forget to send me the link to your ATCs when you´ve finished and posted them.

Mermaids & Kitties

I´ve spent this afternoon making my ATCs for the ARTchix Mermaids & Kitties ATC swap.
Strange combination, you might think ... but when I made these cards, I noticed how easily things get mixed up a bit :-) Please click on the image to see more details.
(BTW, if you don´t know what I´m talking about in my first ATC "Anchored down in Anchorage", you should listen to this great song by Michelle Shocked, for example here.)

True to Yourself

I´ve just been playing a bit today with images from Tumblefish at Deviant Scrap, Freubel, text strips from Tangie Baxter, and other elements.
