These are felt dolls for a doll swap at Alpha Stamps. Images are by Alpha Stamps and Paper Whimsy.
I've signed up for several other art swaps and just wanted to share what I've been creating lately. I have an ATC swap that's due next week which I'm only about 1/3 of the way done with...but that's what late nights and iced caramel lattes are for. I work better under pressure (just a nicer way of saying I'm a big procrastinator). But to be fair to myself, I actually got a lot of the swaps done weeks or even months before they were due. I like having a lot of different projects going on at once. It forces me to be creative every day and it also gives me several choices if one project doesn't happen to "speak" to me at that moment. The only bummer is that I'm sending off original art work, but I get really cool art from other artists in return. And it's good practice for when I make that leap to making art for a living. You just have to let it go.
The following are some of the fan blades I made for a Paper Whimsy swap. The theme was "Valentines by the Sea" and the color theme was Cerulean Blue, Celadon Green, and Coral. I looked up the colors on google image and went from there! (Images by Paper Whimsy)
Here is the finished fan with all of the fan blades from my Valentines by the Sea swap group:
