Some time ago I organized an Art Pen Pal project. (Thanks to Michelle Brunner for the great idea!) Participants were randomly assigned a fellow artist to send a handmade project to. It was fun, with all participants following through, making and sending artwork using materials as varied as Popsicle sticks and Photoshop. Ready for pictures?
1. Made by Angie, sent to IsDihara:
An adorable family portrait using pen, Popsicle sticks, pom pom balls (or whatever they're called!), construction paper, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes, all on white paper.
2. Made by IsDihara, sent to Anna:
A beautiful card using various papers and rubber stamps.
3. Anna to C. Beth:
A fun Photoshopped picture (with Anna's adorable son as the model.)
4. C. Beth to Momza:
A construction paper collage. (Momza is a doula--she provides labor and childbirth support to mamas.)
5. Momza to Bri:
A beautiful holiday drawing with lovely calligraphy.
6. Bri to Tia:
An artistic, creative Photoshop project.
7. Tia to Isabella:
An adorable fall-themed marker picture made with the help of Tia's daughter Ellie's hands.
8. Isabella to Angie:
A soft fabric bird--and a cute card that I've heard came with a little story? Perhaps Angie or Isabella would like to share!
Thank you to everyone who participated! Hopefully we'll do this again soon. Keep your eyes open!
