This time I made the deadline for the second Artist Trading Card Swap hosted by the Art Therapy Alliance’s Materials and Media community. Melanie Glassey generously offered to organize this swap. This time the theme is “collage unleashed.”
Before I began creating these cards, I was feeling a desire to create something simplistic. In my life in general, I’ve been feeling a pull towards more simplicity. I’ve been discovering, once again, how powerful “simple” can be or maybe it is the essence or energy of simple which feels like “flowing with ease.”
The cards were created from papers I had already painted; I just repurposed them. Creating clean lines felt soothing to me. The dragonfly felt like just the right symbol to capture the feeling of flying around with ease. Even my names for the ATC’s are well, very simple.
This was my first time to create an ATC or to participate in an ATC swap. I liked the small size (2.5″ X 3.5″) of the cards plus it is such a fun way to get the creative juices flowing!
