Recently, I had the pleasure of participating in the materials swap organized by Etsy Melange member Pat Whyte. You cannot imagine the fun you have in opening up the packet and rummage through all the goodies that other artists had chosen to share with you. What the artists share with you give you a window into what they collect, what interests them and what they seek for inspiration.
My fellow melanger LizAnna is a quintessential nature girl who can take anything from nature and turn it into art. Her package to me came loaded with handmade papers made out of natural materials, pressed flowers and many many more mouth-watering goodies. Yesterday when I my husband left an empty matchbox on my craft table, I knew exactly what to do with it. LizAnna's flowers, tiny branches and a vintage paper came together on top of the matchbox which now holds my watercolor blank tags.
Visit LizAnna's blog and enjoy many of her tutorials on candle making, paper making and more.
