Birds and Bonnets Swap

What's not to love about an art swap?! Beth & Karla's Birds & Bonnets Swap was fun from the very beginning. All of the players were given images and backgrounds from The Vintage Workshop to use in creating four panels, front and back. All of the panels were sent to Beth...then she and Karla worked together and turned them into marvelous, one-of-a-kind screens. I received my screen on Saturday and I'm so pleased with the results! Four different artists and the panels look as if they were made to go together!

Isn't it incredible?! I want to thank Stephanie, Robin, Shawn and Elizabeth for their beautiful creations!


The players also sent tags with their panels that included their name and any other info they wanted to share. Even these gals' tags are amazing! The lone tag on the far left is one that Karla made for the swap. She created several tags and included one in randomly selected envelopes. How lucky am I! Thank you, Karla!


And as if all that wasn't enough, The Vintage Workshop gave each player another free Download Collection of their choice just for participating. Awesome!

BIG thanks to Beth and Karla for the time and effort they put into a GREAT swap!

What a beautiful swap! Thanks for the comment on my blog. I think I just found a new musical artist that I adore from your site. I have never heard of A Fine Frenzy and I love her voice! Thanks!
