"The goal of this collaborative art project is to allow community members from the Art Therapy Alliance, International Art Therapy Organization, and Art Therapy Without Borders to receive postcard art from art therapists and art therapy students living all over the world." ~ ATWB
Here is the entry way to my studio and some of the supplies that I have been using for my mail art - mixed media post cards....
So I have finished 11 of them and mailed them out yesterday. I am posting the mixed media cards I sent out as well as my process here, for your viewing Here are the 11 postcards that I sent out yesterday , to art therapists in the USA. I plan on doing the international ones all in a group, so I only have to go once to the post office for the correct postage.
My process.... I started with a large sheet of watercolor paper, I measured the size for each postcard on the back....then I created washes and played with it without any specific focus.
I then cut out each postcard (and I found out that the size given on the directions was a little to small)
I loved the idea cutting out each section and letting only a part of the whole be the postcard. Here is one of the watercolor postcard sections. I love the combination of orange and blue...so vibrant.
my intention was to have fun, without judgement or plan.
I really like this quote by Norman Vincent Peale.
"Imagination is the true magic carpet"
Well for some reason, I am not being successful in uploading the last several images...so I will leave it be for now. At least this gives an idea of my process and the fun I have been having.
My next series will be done a bit differently. I am looking forward to getting started soon and will share not only what I do, but what I receive here. Until the next time.
