Kat Sloma’s Liberate Your Art Swap is humming along. I have a new batch to share with you. This is a great year! Seems like most of the swappers printed extras, and there is a whole lotta’ sharing going on.
This gorgeous card started as a thank you gift for the artist’s sister. Such a wonderful idea, don’t you think? It came to me from Terry Owenby in Portland OR. A wonderful collage, that includes vintage postcards, and worn book binding.
This batch includes three more “extra” swaps and two “official” swap postcards. The photo of the chain is from Mary Greliner in Missouri. She says she loved the chain, and I do too! All that rusty ruggedness.
The Sculpture “Struggle” is from Mark Wilson. Unfortunately the bar code made his address unreadable. I am really hoping Mark will see this and get in touch. I would love to see more of your work Mark!
The remaining cards are all “extra’s”. That fabulous Dahlia is from Deanie Houghtaling in Phoenix AZ. The card says that the photo was taken in the Jardin Des Plantes in Paris France. How Cool is that! Deanie is a traveler and it is so wonderful that she shares her travels with all the LYA’s. Take a look at this from last year.
The Dream catcher is from Janice Darby in a far-away place called Santa Maria California. Howdy neighbor! This piece is part collage, and there is so much wonderful detail! “Catch” is a theme Janice has visited before. Check out Janice’s card from the 2014 LYA swap. I think this is the third year I have swapped with Deanie and Janice.
Juana Almaguer is an awesome artist working in Langley Washington. Take a look at her blog. Juana mailed her card in a handmade, scented envelope. She used sheet music and washi tape. She painted a bright beautiful bird on it too! Her photo is super cute. An awesome shot of a squirrel stealing a snack. So fun. I thought Juana and I had swapped before, I couldn’t find the post so I am going to have to keep looking.
Having so much fun with swap! My thanks to each artist for sharing their work with me!
