Some more round robins where I was the second person to work on the card. These are my favourite to blog, as you can see all three stages, which makes it kind of fun.

Here's another example of a card where I was the second person to add something.
When I received the cards, they looked like this.
I added an elephant.
The same idea here, except that these were tags, rather than cards, so the size is a little larger.

Three sets of round robin cards where I sent out a starter to someone, who worked on it, then sent it to a third person to finish. Sometimesyou have a pretty good idea how these will end up, other times, it's much more vague.
I like to use up bits and pieces in making my cards - reduce, reuse, recycle is a theme even in my art. The background for these cards came from an envelope - hence the tape across the middle - I couldn't cut three whole backgrounds from the envelope.
These are also a bit recycled - the pink and white stripes came from a little paper bag, maybe from a card shop.
And actually, these are an example of reusing as well, as the background came from a poster/print we were given free in an independent shop - Liv liked the top of the poster, but was going to discard the bottom part... hey presto: instant card background.

Two sets of round robin cards for which I was the second player. This set was unusual in that the backgrounds weren't at all similar. I added similar things to each card anyway, because I thought it worked. Wish I knew what the other two finished cards looked like!
These starter cards were simply a piece of double sided paper, so I wanted to use them in a way which showed both sides. I folded them over and put a flower at the fold...

Two sets of round robin cards where I was the middle player to work on them. These Dr Seuss cards came to me with the house and the stamp, and are an exception to the rule of how I usually work - I usually try to add things which I already have to the cards, but in this case, they just really wanted something Seuss-y, so I printed out some Loraxes.
These ones did play by my rule - they got a strip of stripey paper and a bird sticker, from things I had in the house to start with.
