Just a little lead up to my pics....I thought I would get out yesterday when the sun was just brilliant to take some snaps when I realized my camera battery was DEAD. Oh well, I said, just go juice up. Come to find my charger was missing - and guess where it is. The cottage (an 8 hour drive from here)! AND guess where my back up charger is. The cottage - arghhhhhhhh. So I thought I was not going to be able to get my pics for awhile...
Until I remembered this morning about my new fancy, schmancy IPhone... and voila (though not as sunny a day). A little fiddling sending to my home email, but I actually think it is a better pic then my digital camera (hmmmm).
I digress though - I have FIVE flags to show as a result of Lenna's swap (Leslie and Beth, my Mail Art peeps agreed this would be our September swap). I love every single one of them.
First up - Sue's creation. I know she struggled a bit at the beginning (I would not have guessed it) but ended up doing a lovely flag using an old hanky and wonderful piece of linen - Thank You Sue.
Then there is Barbara's - I am anxious to try out the rust technique she used - lovin the effect on the fabric. Thank You Barbara.
Marilou created this wonderful Nature flag - the embellishment at the top is very cool and I love the images she used. Thank You Marilou.
Then there is Leslie's - read about how she did the background fabric - it has a silky green colour that the picture does not justice. Thank You L!
Finally, a really sweet flag from Beth - the red just POPs and I love the old linen and buttons - Thank You B!
These are the flags I made to exchange with Beth and Leslie - unfortunately my digital camera makes it look too blue and gold (wish I had used my IPhone then). I used a piece of cutter quilt for the background, then stamping, sewing, embellishments....
I am also getting two more flags shortly (one on one swaps) as a result of Lenna's Prayer Flag swap. All will be coming indoors to hang in my "art-tist studio". It has been soooo much fun and every flag exchanged was its own unique piece of art. Thank You Lenna - I enjoyed every minute! Cheers. Jewels
