Earlier this week, I prepped three backgrounds in my composition book that I seem to go to again and again. This page started with old painted phone book and magazine collage pieces. These are the shapes that appeared when I looked closely. I drew the shapes with a graphite pencil…added paint…and ended with some pen work.
If you have a Big Lots Store near you, check for artists canvas in various sizes. I found two per package, 4×6, for $5.00 and one 11×14, for $3.00. They aren’t the ones with the wider sides but they have the staples on the back and look very well put together.
Here are some swaps going on this month and next. The first one is “Feminine Frills,” a 6×6, girlie girl piece of art to trade one for one. It is being sponsored by Janet and Lee. Find out the particulars by going to either website.
The second swap is rather ambitious. It’s being sponsored by iHanna. For this swap, you will need to make ten postcards. 4×6 inches is the most common size for postcards. You will get postcards from ten different people from all over the world. Hanna is in Sweden. Check this out…they are to be sent out by April 8.
