On my desk today we have lots of test pieces from playing with pan pastels at Art From the Heat. Also on these pieces are sneaky peeks of some of Dyans new releases for CHA in a few weeks, but I cant disclose what they are so you can guess if you want but I wont be denying or confirming any of your guesses.
And then I have a HUGE parcel received from my lovely art buddy Dar, we did an art work swap and this is what I received in my swap. I am BLOWN away by Dar's talent and kindness! She is the best! You really should go check her out she makes the most amazing stuff! Dar did let me know that she went alittle crazy with stamps, sure made me chuckle!
Here is everything that was in the package, including a gorgous handmade card with a lovely letter inside!
Dar included so much of her hand made artwork that I really was amazed! A gorgeous little box with a tiny book inside and a special treat a little wire bird nest. The hand made flowers are divine!
And finally the piece of artwork itself, oh wow. I am totally blown away by the pure talent this lady has! Dar turned a book into a purse and decorated it with my most favourite theme - steampunk! I am over the moon! Dar even included a lucky penny to fall out of the wrapping!
Thank you so much Dar you made my year with this beautiful gift!
