I haven't done many swaps, let alone tag swaps, so when this opportunity came along on Art-e-Zine Cafe, I decided to join, not giving any thought to the fact that I'd get stumped. But getting stuck is a good thing because it forces the kind of problem solving that our brains usually slough off. Part of being an artist (heck, part of life) is entering new territory, not knowing what to do and finding a workable solution.
I realize they aren't major works of art, but I like the way they turned out (I did the back sides too and made 6, duplicated one of them due to time constraints), I think they're cute. Whether or not they convey the Home Sweet Home theme intended is another question. It was fun finding photos I had taken (except for the sofa) and working with as many materials as I possibly could - acrylics, pastels, wholey paper, stamps, gaffer tape, rub-ons, charcoal... I should receive my tag book in the next week or so.
Whether you're traveling this week-end or staying close to your home sweet home, I hope your Memorial Day weekend is creative, relaxing, enjoyable... whatever you want it to be!
