Live Trades

What a trading whirlwind this weekend has been.......The art swappers in this town had been busy creating the most fabulous art!
A group of the Art Chixies have also been busy getting their art in the mail, too. The art challenge
for this particular swap was postcards with the theme of Sunnier Days. So...... I treated myself to work on 80# Classic Crest to produce these colorful collages which are actually postcards. They have both been created with dye ink markers, distress inks, which are so wonderful to work with, they seem float onto the Classic Crest paper. Several images from Artchix Studio were then added, afterward hand lettering was added to finish the designs. They were really fun and addictive to make! If you have never created a postcard collage. Give it a try, it is so much fun!
