Rummaging through the chaos: found some Art Trading Cards
February 3, 2006 by VickyTH
About a year or so ago, Art Trading Cards (2″x3.5″ pieces of artwork mounted on cardstock or stiffened in some way) were all the rage. I had half a thought to partipate in some of the swaps, but (like many things in my life) I never got around to it. I found these in one of the baskets of unfinished projects last night.
Some need their edges sewn and a few need a couple of beads here and there. I’m planning on finishing them off and working them into a larger piece (or several larger pieces) of some sort(s). The rocks below might be a nice minature triptych and some fo the birches might group well together.
Unless anyone is interested in a trade still. Apparently art postacards are currently in vogue, so I’m a bit behind the times. These are largely Angelina Fibers and hand-painted fabrics on hand-dyed silk, stitched with metallic threads.
I think that the main reason I didn’t send them (apart from family chaos, a toddler and four dogs, that is) was that I would by far prefer to trade directly with individual artists with whom I have at least a passing acquaintance. Centralised swaps are not really my thing.
