April Showers goodies

I think everyone on the ZNE Design Team has finally received their April Showers Swap package - and, if not, I just can't wait to post this any longer! Look at the plethora of goodies I received. Some were even individually packaged in sweet wrappings.

All of this came from Krissy (http://kristinschadwickcreations.blog.com/) - a great "mini me" ATC, along with several vintage photos, origami papers and candy. Thanks Krissy!

The ATC on the left was made by Ann (http://annbutlerdesigns.blogspot.com/) and is polymer clay rolled so thin it feels like paper. Love the graded colors. Peggi (http://desertphotography.blogspot.com/ )made the other ATC with a crackled background and a darling little fairy. Thanks Ann and Peggi!

Tiffany (http://www.beyondthevintagepath.com/) made this aged, stamped clothespin and tags. I love the Paris one especially. Thanks Tiffany!

Mary Ann (http://www.followyourblissdesigns.com/) sent this assortment. I love her business card in front and the collaged magnet. The tea smells luscious and the chocolate is long gone! Her little card is so sweet and I can't wait to use these cute trinkets somehow, especially the tiny ballerina. Thanks Mary Ann!

Donna (http://bonniebluedenim.blogspot.com/) sent these makings for ATCS. I love the black and white glossy image and the two vintage playing cards. Thanks Donna!

These three items were not signed, but I've discovered that the beautiful stamped domino pendant in the center was made by Kat (http://alteredkat.blogspot.com/). Thanks Kat! The pink cone and glittered Paris 4 x 4 are both gorgeous and I wish I could personally thank those artists. Love them.

Chelise (Chel) (http://www.cheliseart.com/) made this darling Easter chick, complete with an egg body, lace hem binding mini skirt and a gold candy cup bonnet. And her business card is equally cute! Thanks Chel!

More chocolate! Julee (http://heartcollective.blogspot.com/ ) sent a bunch of candy bundled up in spring colors with a tiny handmade inchie tag. Thanks Julee!

Gina (http://elevenmorning.blogspot.com/) made this lovely pendant, possibly from a game piece. It has a beautiful glazed image surrounded with embossed copper tape and beading. Thanks Gina!

And, last but not least, this soldered glass pendant from Pam (http://thebagladysart.blogspot.com/). The soldering on this is exquisite. Thanks Pam!

As you can see, the ZNE Design Team is a very talented group of artists. I feel so honored to be a part of this team and to be able to share friendship and art with them. You can access ZNE from the sidebar of my blog or go to http://www.znedesignteam.com/.

i love your blog and i just finished doing the crackle technique that you showed - i used chocolate brown (YUM) with a powder blue over top layer - came out great! thanks for the tip - i've been wanting to try to do a crackle effect and yours was too easy not to try!
