Big Cat's Arty Swap!

I finished my art swap piece and it's all ready to be shipped all the way to the US of A!
I tried to use lots of different types of textures....could be something to do with the fact that I love playing around with PVA glue.....I think this obsession might have started at Pre-school.
I also sewed on some beads for a bit of extra glam!

I'm sending mine off to Tessa from Make Life a Tree and Leaf.... (very cool name for a blog).
It's pouring rain in Melbourne today (yippee)....great for the garden, not great for art photos.....so this is the best I could do.
I really hope you like it Tessa!

I have to give a really big thanks to Cath from Big Cat's Emporium for organising the swap. It was lots of fun to get out the paper, glue, paint, beads, fabric and cotton and stick them all on a canvas.

I'm receiving a fabulous piece of art all the way from NSW from Shellbells of Bubba & Chicken.
It's a really cool art piece / letter holder - and in perfect colours for my house!
