What I did find, though, was a woman who does a lot of sewing. She'd brought along a pile of buttons, but didn't really expect anyone to want them. As you might expect, there were a lot of ordinary buttons, but also a large number of colored and shapes buttons and some large ones. I bought the lot for 10 euros, and both of us were pleased with the bargain.

The cards were cut twice the length of an ATC. First, I stamped and embossed the front of each ATC with a script stamp. The next step was to paint each card with gold and bronze acrylic. Then I punched out rectangles, affixed a scrap of metal mesh inside each card and folded it. The finishing touch was simply to weave various yarns through the mesh, leaving an inch or two hanging over at each side.
If I make more of these, I might try weaving the yarns into the mesh before closing and gluing the cards. I'm sure that would look nice, too.

I had a little think over the weekend and decided that, as my PIF here on Art Angelix seems to have gone completely unnoticed, I'd kill two birds with one stone and honour my PIF commitment by making three more sets of cards (see the photos here) and sending them to people who signed up for the OWOH draw.

Here are two blogs you'll want to look at, I'm sure.
Creative Solace (Heather Robinson)
I also joined a new Yahoogroup called "Eurosupplies" today. It's owned by Mika and Shakti, two of my art friends, with whom I do a lot of art projects. The basic idea is that European artists can swap art materials, or materials suitable for art making, they have lying around or use the "wish list" ask for materials they would like to use in their art.
We've been exchanging materials in other ways for some time, but this is going to be much easier, as all swaps and requests are now organised in one place (on one group). So, If you're an artist living in Europe, feel welcome to join Eurosupplies and make use of the exchanges.
