Our Mixed Media Collabrative Group had a recent challenge to swap envelopes …we designed enough to trade…fun exchange!
Not only was it fun to recieve them at our meeting but now they can go in the mail and be a surprise to someone else! Sharing art has been a great experience with this group and in blogland!
Here are mine created from prints I did in a recent gelli printing class. I used red rosin paper a generous freind, Patty of Magpie’s Nest, supplied me with for the printing. Then I went in with stamps, pen and ink and a few fun travel stickers…lined them with maps …and they are ready to post!
I did send one from coast to coast, it arrived just fine – so they work!
These are the ones I recevied in my trade from the other members:
Snail Mail Alert: Colorful Envelopes on their way!!!
I mentioned in an earlier post that I am participating in an online course by Alena Hennessy called A Year of Painting. I thought that since June marks our half way through the year mark I would do a gallary of my paintings.
Alena has done a great job of inspiring, pacing and opening up the class up creatively to new ideas and for me new mediums and surfaces. I have enjoyed the intuitive approach she presents and her supportive nature.
Here are my samples from the past six months…
2) playing with ink & paint
4) soul collage
5) magic faces
6) glitter love bomb
7) botanical beauty
8) animal spirit guide

I will be participating in an art show here in Northern Virginia and would love to get the word out to the community that this event is happening. It is a night filled with art from 7pm – 10pm you can take in a juried art exhibit (purchase the art!), poetry reading storytelling and theatrical perfomers ….and there’s wine!
It all supports the Fairfax County organization: Our Daily Bread, which provides help to struggling residents int he Fairfax County area.
It will be May 2, 7-10pm at the Sherwood Center in Fairfax City
