Tasty Eye Candy!
Just a Peak! Only a Peak!!
My ABC tags arrived yesterday. Yippee! In February I was invited to participate in an ABC Tag Swap with 25 other artists across this 3rd rock from the sun... the tags arrived yesterday - well, 25. We are missing one letter and I'm thinking of ways to fill the gap... Some of these beauties traveled all the way from Norway, Germany, Australia, France and New Jersey! They stopped in Canada for assembly by our swap organizer, then made their way back out across the miles, this time in sets, to all of us.
Can I tell you how honored I am to be in such company? These gals are true Artists! Some teach classes, have written their own books and have stamps named after them! Several are on design teams. I am one of the 'newbies' and was so touched that Deborah invited me to join her group. The invitation alone was a hallmark occasion for me. Each tag is a work of art with so much detail!
If you look closely you can see my tag, it's the one in the middle with the black silhouette flowers.. I can't show you the whole enchilada until next week. Our leader, Deborah March, is working on the possibility of our tags being published. We find out next week! If this happens, it will be my first Art publication (other than my writing, that is).
Once we get the 'OK' I will share with you a tutorial on how I made my tag. It has a full-moon image and was for the letter 'M'. Oh! My set came with an 'extra' X. As her luck would have it, it was Deborah's! That gal deserves a crown, a medal and a cake for all the work she put into this. Thanks, Deborah!
