Hands Swap at iATCs
I joined a "Talk To The Hand" Swap at iATC's and decided to go ahead and use that as my theme. I have completed four of them and am still trying to find the time to make some more... the more you send in, the more you receive!
I cut out the hand shape, using my hand as a stencil, from watercolor paper, then added royalty-free clipart, acrylic paints, german scrap, oriental text from an old book and medium. I then covered the back with scrapbook paper so I can add my backside labels with all my personal information for the swap. I thoroughly enjoyed making these. I don't work in collage very often and find it pretty intimidating, but this was fun for me. Yay!
