Challenges, Trades & Random Ideas

Challenges, trades & random ideas, a few things I've worked on recently:

Travelling Art journal pages, by me: Doodle theme, vintage (70's) algebra book page, acrylic paint doodles, black pencil doodles, black pen doodles, scrapbook paper piece, for a journal swap on Swap-Bot

Music challenge: Based on "Nothing compares 2U" the Sinead O'Connor version, acrylic paint, pencil, black pen, colored pencil, embroidery thread, for a Sketchbook Project challenge, Songs to Draw From, to create an original 4X6 piece based on a Spotify playlist (& for a chance to be published in Diner magazine)

Necklace for Swap Bot Summer Scavenger Hunt Swap: Wood from my yard, chain from Goodwill, owls from another swap, glass beads (from an EtsyRain stash swap), porcelain beads, vintage wood beads (from an 80's bracelet), gemstone diamond shape beads (from an EtsyRain local group stash swap), copper bead, hand crochet fiber 'chain,' gold color wire, purchased pearl look findings
And lastly, a preview of a piece that I'm working on for Seattle Handmade's Tiny Tales & Small Stories show at the Stunningly Strange Gallery: Vintage Frames, repurposed images from a Leadbelly (Huddie Ledbetter) postcard by Pomegranate Publications, Hand embroidered with handspun silk & wool embroidery thread by Dragonfly Lotus Designs, Copper Wire
I've been enjoying these little challenges & working in new ways. Have you been working on anything lately?
