In addition to the church auction I already posted about, I also painted two more similar silk scarves with butterflies for my Thrifty Swap partners, Heather and Annie. I know both are received so here they are ... one was a long scarf, the other square.
I stayed with the same theme and colours for both as they have similar likes, but the nice thing about silk painting is that the inks spread and blend unexpectedly so no two are quite the same.
The materials were thrifty as I had bought the scarves at Christmas when the supplier had an offer, I had the inks already and the sequins I had saved from those little bags they attach to dresses in case you lose a bit.
I also made them each a scented lavender bag from the fabric given to me in my swap with Lemonade Kitty.
I really enjoyed swapping with Annie and Heather - you can see the lovely things they sent me
