My submission for an Art Lottery!! On this group, anyone can submit art for the lottery to the hostess and at the end of the month she puts all the names in a hat and picks one to receive all the fun items that have arrived!! She also picks a second name to receive the art submitted by the winner. I like the fact that there are no rules or themes and I can pick the format. I usually include a few goodies with my submission. This time I have included some slide mounts and transparencies so the person who receives it can play a little. I embossed the gold coloured lead (from a wine bottle) with my D'vine Swirl embossing folder. I just love that design!! Have managed to emboss cardstock with it by using my rolling pin. I have to spritz the cardstock before I put it in the folder but it does work pretty well. I laser printed the transparencies using images I have downloaded from the internet. Just did a bit of collage as a background. I cut the slide mounts from bristol vellum using a Sizzix machine. I have them for sale on my MMM site - follow the link below.

I have found this past year that I have been doing more mingles than swaps. I like spending more time on one piece of art and generally the cost of mailing them is less as well.
