In the End...Birds & Bonnets Swap

Truth Butterfly with Vintage Wallpaper Dress

Yay! I'm finally finished with these screens for the Birds & bonnets Swap (hosted by Beth & Karla). It took alot longer than I thought it would. But I loved every minute of it. I haven't let go & really gotten into it like that in a long time.
I'm very happy with the outcome & the package was sent out today. Here is everything that was in the package...

Side 1 of the 4 screens

Sides 2 of the 4 screens
Ray of Sunshine Butterfly
This is a cheery one. She's a Ray of Sunsine that says "If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain."

Dance for the Moon Butterfly
Here is a dancing Butterfly with a dress made of an upsidedown clip art of a basket of flowers. I added some ruffles for 3 dimension and to mimic movement. & Of course she has to have sparkly flowers in her hair.

My Gift is My Song & This one's for You
This screen features a small sewn booklet of music sheets, newspaper and design cardstock. Here is a view of the inside.

My heart without you

A new & improved version of the original. I just realized this screen does not have paper from the Vintage Workshop, which is the point of the Swap. I hope they will forgive me this time :)

Here are the Thank you Gifts for the Swap Hosts Beth & Karla.
I hope they will enjoy their matching Angels

Packaging of the Angels

the Screens are packaged under this shredded paper in an old Party bubbles box. Here are the signiture tags I made to hang from the binder rings.
YAA stands for YourAngil Adornments. The name of my Etsy shop.
Although I'm still working on the packaging of the products & designing business cards, I'm excited about the Altered things & supplies available.

Angela, This is my first panel I saw when I opened my package - My Heart Is Empty. It is absolutely stunning. The picture doesn't capture how truly gorgeous it really is. I love all the embellishments - the "B" letter charm, the dimensional wings, and the beautiful hand lettering. Thank you from the bottom of my heart - it came to someone who truly appreciates your exquisite craftsmanship. A great big hug to you. Nancy
