Darkroom Door Swap Gallery

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Lorri_LennoxI have just finished hosting the first ever Darkroom Door Swap! Participants could take part in the Card swap and/or the Artist Trading Card swap, and needed to use Darkroom Door Rubber Stamps as a part of their creations. All up there were 30 artists who took part. I have loved receiving the swap parcels in the mail, eagerly opening each one to see what goodness and creativity was inside! I especially loved seeing how the stamps were used. The artists really used their imagination in this swap. There were lots of  inking techniques, layering, collage, interesting backgrounds, unique stamp combinations, papers, Photobooth, and lots of texture. For a few of the artists - this was their first swap ever! I'm so pleased you all took part and shared your creativity with us.

Here are the galleries to check out all the art:

Thank you to all of you who participated! I feel like I can never express how much I love seeing our stamps used in such different ways. When I design the stamps, I have a fair idea of how I'd be using them myself, but I always look forward to seeing what other artists create with them. It's the most wonderful feeling knowing that you are enjoying using them too!

I'll be hosting a Photobooth swap soon... I'll post the details up on the blog next week.

Thanks again to all the participants for this swap - your artwork is truly inspirational!

Unlock the artist within!
