pocket page {card inserts}

i have a swap coming up at the end of this week- a pocket page. i have done those before and have posted about the items i included in my page; in fact, twice before: round one here and round two here. this page will be just a bit different as my partner and i are taking the bybun creatures class and agreed to use that as our overall theme, otherwise, sometimes the items are specified and are usually different for each pocket.

this is my first round of posts for this page. the "cards" are like ATCs. a standard ATC measures 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" but, mine a bit smaller measuring 2 1/2" x 3" so that if i wanted to sew the pocket edge, i have room.

this first round i stayed with the theme of creatures and used pictures cut out of a fashion magazine and incorporating the pics into my cards.

i loved the soft blue of the card below. that is actually oil pastel. i bought cheap ones and when i used the hairdryer (because i have no patience....) the pastel was soft and was able to be moved and smudged out a bit.

loved the bright colors on this one below and again, used my trick of the soft pastel and hairdryer to smudge out my pink.

happy monday.
