Wake Up & Smell the Coffee Swap

Who doesn't like a good brew of coffee in the morning?  I know I do, so this swap was right up my alley.  I haven't done mixed media collage in a while and I wanted to make coffee cups with a little more than just the cup.  I used permanent markers and white gel pen for accents.

ATCs: Hand Drawn/Hand Painted "Stained Glass" Swap!

I hosted this swap and made a psd file to send to Admin for adding to AFA's Swap Gallery.  I had alot of returns that I was able to keep and made it from some of those.  Kind of a bummer that I could only use 24 of the over 30 cards I received, but I think it worked out well.

Whooo Wants Owls?

JAMing with kiddos swap III - The other 2 cards

Mountains at Night - My daughter drew the mountains, clouds, and stars. My husband added the river, sidewalk, and finished off the mountain. I added everything else!

Smiley Girl - My daughter drew the girls face, hair, and sun . My husband added the neck, shirt, and smiley pin. I added everything else!

My 9 yo wanted to color in these two, so I let her!

JAMing with kiddos swap III - 2 of 4 cards

What is a JAM ATC you may be asking.  Well, “JAM - A JAM Card is an ATC worked on by more than one artist. Each person adds to the card, leaving room for others to add on. The card is then passed on to the next person...”

My husband and I took our 9 year old daughter to Braum's last night for ice cream and while we were sitting there we worked on four cards for this swap.  She started and worked on one for two minutes, then my husband would work on it for two minutes, and then I would finish the card up in two minutes.

Then last night I painstakingly went over each one with a black fine permanent marker.  I colored in the two I am posting now and she is going to color in the other two.  I'll post those when she is finished coloring them in.


Fun in the sun! - My daughter drew the Palm tree, line for sand, sun, clouds, and words "fun in the sun!".  My husband added the sail boat and starfish.  I added everything else, including the leaves for the palm tree!

Sleeping Cat - My daughter drew the sleeping cat.  My husband added the ball of yarn and stripes on the cat.  I added everything else!
