BTAE Spring Ornie Swap

Here are the spring ornaments that I received in the BTAE swap. Aren't they cool? These were made by Sheila of Primkinfolk. For anyone out there who is unfamiliar with Primitive Folk Art, this is what it looks like.

The idea is to make it look like they are old, really old, and made by people who wanted to have nice things but had to make them themselves, no store to go to and buy them.

It's a style that can grow on you.

This is what we call a "swap" where you make something according to a theme and send it to someone else that signed up. The organizer decides which way the exchanges go. There are any ways to decide.

This is the ornament I made to send to Sheila. We were only supposed to send one. Sheila cheated.

This swap was among Beneath the Attic Eaves, and ebay group of primitive folk artists. I'm not primarily primitive, but I like the group. They are nice people. The theme for this swap was Spring Ornaments.
