The boys and myself are on the countdown to our week in Melbourne, which is now only one month away. 'A' hasn't been before, and for Rod and I it will be about our fifth trip but we are just as excited as our first. Melbourne really is one of our favorite destinations, with lots to see and fabulous food and wine to experience. This trip plans to be a totally different experience having A with us and a crafty event to go to.
For the first two days the boys will be on their own as I am heading to a crafty get together with my fellow Australian and New Zealand AFA (ATC's for All Members) and I am so looking forward to putting names to the faces of those I swap my art with regularly as well as meeting some of whom I have yet had the pleasure.
Speaking of swaps and ATC's I have a couple to share with you today for one of the latest AFA Swaps titled Down by the Ocean/Down by the Sea. All of which are mixed media collage (mix of stamping, Gelatos, Water Color Pencils and Collage) on Gelli Print Backgrounds which were created using stencils.
Lighting the Way
For this swap one card had to have an animal you would find in or near the ocean, the second card had to have someone wearing a bathing suit, and the third one was artists choice. Whilst the forth card is for the host/hostess of the swap and is optional.
