|Andrew, a tad vexed at first.|
|Sorry about this picture, but we were both giggling rather too much at this point!|
|Time for the magic...|
|Ta dar, two draws!|
|I love children's large jigsaw pieces for art.|
|Trust me , that isn't Loo roll!|
And I was a good girl, and polished up the set of draws I was given,
I always collect ephemera, but this week I was on the look out for more, as I had joined a one off swap via Life book. The idea was that the participants would collect 100 pieces of paper goods for 10 people, therefore 1000 piece and post them off around the world. I love doing things like this. Postage can be a bit scary, but it is worth it if you can do it. Having complied this swap, I think it should have been a little smaller, but great fun never the less. So my packets contained, pages from old books, dictionaries maps, playing cards, bingo sheets stamps game pieces, toy money tarot cards all sorts of thing. I already make smaller ephemera and collage kits for my student, which I really enjoy doing so it was no problem. Well they have all been sent off, I will let you know what comes back. It will be like Christmas in the middle of the year..., hopefully!

|Face for book cover.|
|Add back ground|
|I always like to photocopy work before starting the back ground.|
|Faces are stitched to water colour paper and decorated.|
See you next week.
