I'm taking part in a 6 way Christmas Jigsaw Jam swap. (I know the dreaded C word, but it really isn't long now lol)

When each person receives all their swaps back, they then adhere them to canvas, to make one piece of art.

Me, i have to be different lol. I'm sending them slightly larger jigsaw pieces, and wish to have them made into individual christmas tree decorations. Havn't quite made my mind up on the colours, but have chosen the theme 'Wings".

The first one i made was for Sherry, who asked for the theme Musical Christmas with the colours red and gold.

For Sherry
size 3" x 2" (7cm x 5cm approx)

The second one is for Viv, who asked for vintage christmas in the colours cream and gold

For Viv
size 3" x 3" (8sq cm)

The third one is for Wendy who asked for Angels, in the colours purple, blue and silver. To make this one, i digitally altered a photograph, then did an inkjet copy, which i then painted with brusho inks, and used stickles glitter, glamour dust, stickers, and acetate wings

For Wendy
size2.5" x 3.5" (6cm x 9cm)

I'm still awaiting the arrival of the other 2 involved in the swap, and will post them up as and when i finish them.

Also this week, i managed to make 2 ATC's for the MAMMA group i run over on Flickr. The theme i chose this week is Remembrance and here's my entries for the swap.

Hi MArgaret, geat jiggy pieces. I am one of the ones you are waiting for - but then I haven't had yours either LOL. I reckon mine will be bigger than yours, hope that you will be able to cope.
