My trades for the Artnest Retreat














I have made my prototype for my trades for the Artnest Retreat.
I decided to do an ATC with a charm attached. Here is the front and then the back. For the front I used a picture of a nest added a feather and the retreat name and date. For the back I took the Self care collage I did awhile back and reduced it down to an ATC size and then adding some things about me. I used a small hole punch and then attached the charm with some embroidery floss.














I was going to go get some colored cellophane to make little bags but then thought I might do small fabric bags. Do you think that is a good idea? I thought I still may see if Michaels has anything appropriate. Tomorrow is another day. I have all the charms made but I do need to make the ATC's. I have everything cut out, I just need to get an assembly line going and put them all together.I think I will add a simple tag to these. Something like a bird or nest and maybe says "a gift for you". I'd appreciate any input. I mean if you were going would this be a trade you might like to receive.
