For those of you that might not know, I am the moderator of the FiberArt Trading Cards Yahoo Group. This is a gathering of artists who share a love of trading cards, and a unique vision to make meaningful, creative, and of course fiber related art! Although we are using mostly fiber materials, our work may also incorporate the use of different mediums.. collage, assemblage, and mixed media.
Not only do I have the fun of coordinating exciting swaps/exchanges and projects for this group, I also have the pleasure of working with some VERY VERY TALENTED fiber artists. Seeing their work, up close and personal, is a WONDERFUL perk of being moderator!!!
This beautiful "LOVE" Garland is the swap piece I got to keep from our most recent exchange. It is the creation of the INCREDIBLE Mary Stanley.
The theme for our swap was "Heart to Heart". Participants were asked to make 4 to 6 FiberArt Trading Cards. Each card had one letter, several letters, and/or images on it and cards were strung together to create a garland. Our art celebrated all the sentiments that come from the heart.
Pictured below are the other TRULY OUTSTANDING garlands created!!!
