Collage ATC's can provide for endless variety. I created eight cards today for a mail art swap on the theme of 'Poetic Women'. The idea is to provide a textual and colourful mixed media background for a vintage photograph linked to an unlikely phrase.
I love art challenges - and Cath & Roc's eight week postcard challenge on Mail Art World http://www.mailartworld.com/ is one of the best. Members are sent a collage page of arbitrary - and weird - images to use. Then at the end of the week we race to swap.
Here's mine. The gargoyle looks mournfully at cakes and chocs... and his Ma and Pa. He is weeping.
Three postcards (4"x6") painted this week for my personal collection. These are in acrylics and in a variety of styles. Cowes was painted using torn pieces of cardboard instead of a brush. All attempt a more abstract approach where colour can glow.
