I have the wonderful pleasure of exchanging some art with some amazing artists from around the world, many that are an inspiration to me, and support and influence the creative world of mixed media, scrapbooking and crafts. The talented Nuneka put together a great group of artists to exchange their creativity.


I decided to make an altered canvas for my exchange partner Phoebe, She loves the grunge and I am excited that she will have a piece of my art for her collection. I titled this Rustic Heart with all the rust and texture.

I made a little video for you enjoyment. my creative process, which I still am not sure what type of process it is. 🙂 but it’s just creating and enjoying the process. (giveaway there also 😉

The art exchange is not swapping art with your partner, but to receive a project from someone else. I had the wonderful pleasure of receiving this amazing project from Aira Hashimoto from Japan. It is amazingly beautiful beyond words. I really honored to have such an amazing piece for my collection. Domo Arigatou Gozaimasu Aria I am truly blessed to have such a beautiful piece.

You can check out more pictures of her project here.
