'Tis the season to find fabulous things in our mailboxes! In addition to beautiful Christmas cards and fun holiday photo cards, I've received some new pieces of art to share with you.
Kym, of Bliss Artworks, sent me this postcard made from painted corrugated cardboard. Take a look at her post describing how she combined influences from at least four different workshop teachers in the creation of these cards! I always enjoy reading about how she takes techniques and ideas from lots of different sources and combines them to create her own original works of art.
Karenann. I've noticed several people getting great creative results with corrugated cardboard. What a wonderful material to use to incorporate recycling into your art practice!
Janet from Just Me and My Art and I did an ATC swap, and I received the beautiful card above--great colors, imagery, and sentiment. She blogged about the ATC I sent to her here, along with all of the other artful goodies she has been receiving lately.
Making friends online is a lot like making friends out in the world as an adult. If it's going to happen, I really just have to go for it. If I have a question, I ask it. If I have a compliment to share, I give it. If I want something (like a trade, for example), I ask for it (nicely, I hope!). So far, I have always been rewarded with the most friendly, inspiring, art-filled friendships that I could hope for!
