2016: Artistic accomplishments

It’s been awhile since I last posted. I hope to give more of an update soon, and perhaps post about my artistic goals for the next year.

First, I wanted to share some of my artistic wins from this year through images:

Artist Trading Card Exchange

In March, I participated in an Artist Trading Cards Exchange through Albuquerque’s Women & Creativity Month.

They sent me 10 small blank cards, which I turned into these:

(the picture is a little cut off at the bottom, but hopefully you get the idea)

I then sent these off, and they mixed them up with other people’s cards and sent them off to other people.

In April, I received this in the mail:

Which opened up like an accordion:

I took out the individual cards…

…and got this lovely assortment of cards from 10 different artists!

I really enjoyed participating in this exchange, and hope to do it again next year. It was a great way to inspire and share my own creativity, and see what others created, too.
