I had fun weaving some “exotic travel” thought-twigs & vintage glamour threads into these “Nest” inspired artist trading cards for an ARTchix Studio swap this past spring. Artist trading cards are little 2.5″ x 3.5″ mini mixed-media masterpieces created just for the joy of making art, and traded with other collage artists. It takes a bit longer to get lovely old-fashioned snail mail here in The Bahamas, and I was thrilled to find these Art Nest beauties (from fellow ARTchix swappers) waiting for me in the “post”:
Aren’t these sweet? And GORGEOUS?! These tiny treasures are so fun to look at and hold … so many layered and textural details and captivating images. Completely inspiring and heartwarming. From my cozy art nest to all the very talented creators of the cards pictured above: Thank You!! And to everyone out there having fun creating art in your own little studio or dining room table nook: art on!
