April Challenge

I think all four of us had fun with the March Clothespin Challenge. I must say that I am partial to Julie's giraffe and Jeanne's little old lady with the walker. All were creative!

Our group challenge for April is to make a set of Artist Trading Cards. Make at least four in your series so that we can exchange them with each other. Make more if you want to share with a friend!

Artist Trading Cards do have a few parameters:
  • They are the same size as a baseball card: 2.5" x 3.5"
  • Start with cardstock
  • Use any medium that works for you: paper, fabric, painting, collage, found objects, etc. It can be as simple or elaborate as you wish.
  • Make it a Spring or Easter theme, incorporating your personal theme. I'll find a way to put a heart or two on mine.
  • Sign the back with your name, date, the name of your series, the series number, and perhaps your email address.

For inspiration, take a look at our Pinterest board. There are lots of ideas already posted, and you can add more. If you need some directions on how to get started, check out this article on WikiHow.
