Instant Art Collection

Remember those 12 "froggie" ATCs I made a while back? They were for Kimberly's Fabric of Nature Swap. 
Well the swap has concluded and a lovely package arrived at Maple Hill on Friday.
There were ATCs on their own, some packaged sweetly and others with a few little extras like buttons.
Each are their own piece of art...
...and I suspect very much reflect the styles of the makers
Kimberly has asked we share how we plan to display our new art collections..
I do know what I will be doing - it just so happens I recently found a perfect old book cover...it will take a little time but I envision a wonderful journal to house them all in. Stay tuned. Jewels

  1. Hello Jewels,
    You have created a lovely post about our little swap! It all looks gorgeous and I am sure your book will be wonderful to look at. I too, was thinking of book form. But I haven't decided yet...still thinking it over : )
    I absolutely love the ATC I received from you. I just love your frog theme.
    Hugs,
    Terri

  9. What a swap haul! I especially like the little brown bird one and the old chair with the nest next to it. But all of them are lovely and will make a neat little book. Good job!
