Hi Jenn,

I would love to join. Is photography okay? I am an underwater photographer and have some images that I would like to use for ATCs. I used some of my u/w photos for the Marine Life swap but I would choose different images for this swap.

Tomorrow is the first day I qualify to host a swap. The first theme I came up with was posted by someone else last month. Back to the drawing board.... My second idea was posted the following week. I thought I was close enough last night & started designing a fishy swap. Great minds think alike :rolleyes: So... my cards are ready for the mail. PM your addy please.

Beutiful cards! I really like the last one colors!

kat
05-25-2008, 06:26 PM
Thank you, Elena. There are so many different colors in the fishy world; it's fun to play with them all. Each of these is modeled after some fish called a Rainbow Fish.

Ibus

Kat,

Fabulous fishy cards. Have you ever read the story "Rainbow Fish" (children's picture book). I'm an art teacher and love using it as a springboard for projects with my elementary students. Are you by chance also a scuba diver? I wonder how many divers have/will sign-up for this swap. I have been diving for almost 4 years now and find myself drawn to this subject matter.

Rainbow Fish is beautifully illustrated book.

I am jealous of your scuba diving, I have never been but I bet it's a rush!! ;)

Diving is probably the most amazing thing I have ever done. So far Bonaire is my most favorite dive destination. I will most likely use my u/w photos from my trip to Bonaire for this swap.

kbutts --
Yes, I read "The Rainbow Fish" years ago. No, I do not scuba dive, but I envy your experiences. My older daughter taught marine biology and pool ecology as an intern one semester. She loved it.

I don't think you will find the sleeves at Michaels. You can get them at a hobby shop.

Sometimes you can find sleeves there :)
