WIP and art swap....

I took this photo a couple of days ago.... it is a WIP (work in progress) for a fabric page for a round robin book being hosted by Belinda Schneider. Belinda loves Kaffe Fassett fabrics and also Klimt (and so do I !!!!). I have tried to include both in this page for her. Very busy and colourful page..... I hope Belinda likes it! Will share the finished pages at a later date. I recently did a swap with Linda Vincent in the UK (I love her art!!!). Below are two ATC's she made for me. Love them both.... I even rented the Frida DVD this weekend to learn more about this artist. It was a great movie and a real insight into her life. Love the zetti ATC too.
Its a shame but the photos just dont do justice to the detail Linda puts into her work. Lots of embossing and some delicate pen work.....
I also received these gorgeous houses. Once again lots of wonderful detail. Love the numbers (7 being my favourite) and the beautiful bird images. A lot of the "doodling" on these houses Linda has done by hand, dont they look amazing.
I am finishing off my journal pages for the Soul Journal with Sarah Whitmire and will have some pictures to post in the next few day (got to get that camera out !!!). Sarah is away on a weeks vacation, so if you want to join in the fun, plenty of time to get caught up with the prompts.

Take care of you!

Jacky - I love this fabric page so much! The 2 dolls fit together beautifully; you are so clever. Glad you got to see the film; I think it gives a real insight into Frida's life.

jacky, you've inspired me to start on sarah's soul journal... thank you! so far i'm still on the soul armour page. but even if i don't catch up by the time everyone else is done,that's okay.

i love your klimt dolls-- they really capture the essence of klimt... and as a klimt lover i feel qualified to make this remark. ; )

thank you for the inspiration...
