Arttechniques Fatbook Swap - Received

Yesterday's mail brought a box to our doorstep. I knew right away what is was. "The new Fat Book is here, the new Fat Book is here," I yelled in my best Steve Martin voice. (Of course, the kids looked at me as if they always knew I would be an embarrassment to them eventually. Thankfully only one of their friends was around to witness the disgrace.)

Since I've not gotten permission from any of the participants to post pictures of their work individually, I'll just show you what 120 4" x 4" pages look like splashed on the floor. Quite a pile, huh?

The purpose of this swap was to share a technique using recycled/repurposed materials. Some of the techniques I've done before, some I've wondered about, and some I've never thought to pursue. I'm now intrigued by many of the shared wonders and have some fun new things to try.

I've not done a swap for a long time and I had almost forgotten what a kick it is to get the return package in the mail. If you're thinking of participating in a swap: go for it! I learn something every time and almost always meet some new artists that I enjoy too.

This should keep you busy for quite a while.

I'll bring the box to the next Altered Sister's meeting. I don't think I'll bind it into a book as there are just too many pages.
