It’s the end of May, and I’ve received nine post cards in the ihanna swap. I’m hoping the missing #10 is winging its way from some wonderful distant land, like Australia or India. I received cards from Canada, Sweden, the UK, and from around the U.S., including Hawaii. Nine might be it, so here’s what […]
A few new pieces going into the weekend.
As long as the ideas keep coming I’m going to keep making cards, even though the swap is over. If anyone would like to do an individual swap, or even if you’d just like to receive a card, please send your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Having many years’ worth of unused art supplies didn’t prevent me from taking myself on an artist’s date. Stocked up on more markers, water color paper, poster board and fresh water color paint…
…and the coolest coloring book, which I’ll use for inspiration, templates, collage or just plain stealing.
Weekends are pretty busy, so here’s the rest of this week’s output:
Thanks to a tip from Nat’s Smallest Forest blog, which led me to Hanna Andersson’s postcard swap, April was my month to get into mail art. The batch for the swap went into the mail yesterday, so I’m sharing the images for my first Jillybeans post. My other blog will be primarily a writing/poetry site (although I will still include images, in keeping with its title). This one will showcase art, which will be mostly small postcard-size pieces for the time being. I find I love the format and the various media (especially watercolor and the brilliant, fun colors of markers), so my friends can be looking for little surprises in their mailboxes.
Sorry the “About” section isn’t caught up yet. I’m running out of time and will update both blogs next week.
