Prayer Flag Swap

I'm taking a little "me time" this afternoon and catching up on artsy things. I joined Lenna's Prayer Flag Swap which is due in September. The good news is I am on pace to get mine out the door shortly.
These were fun and different for me. It was a perfect day to take them outdoors so I could photograph them. 
You need to make 3 and send to Lenna - I will get 3 back from different people in return.
I had some ground rules for myself - the first being "use what you got". Fortunately that was not much of a stretch.
Second was to do something different - I had not printed on Vellum before but wanted my words to be on transparent background - wahoo.
Third - bright colors - I think I achieved that as well!
The dimensions are 5 x 8 though mine have that extra bit of trim at the bottom that make them longer. I used fabric as well as old linen place mat, stamped on muslin and inked for background color...
and of course buttons.
I am also making an additional 2 for my Mail Art buddies (Beth and Leslie) but will wait to show them later (they are different to these three). Enjoy! Jewels

  4. Jewels, these turned out so beautifully! I started out well and then got stuck and can't come up with ideas for mine. I hope to get unstuck soon.
