As a big fan of ArtHouse Co-op in Brooklyn, I'm always excited when they post a new project. Many of which are free, such as The 4 x 6 Exchange 2. It was easy-peasy - just create a 4 x 6 card and mail it along with a SASE and wait for a postcard from another artist to show up in the mail. I love sending and receiving good mail, don't you?

postcard back - "there is always time to play"
The original artwork is 6 x 8 and is composed of scraps and packing material from an earlier project. Rubber stamping, hand-coloring, stitching and a portion of a postcard from Artist and Craftsman Supply (the wooden hand with pencil) complete the collage. I scanned it at 600dpi and printed with my Canon printer on 65 lb. white cover stock. The Bernina B330 is a work horse; sewing paper and cardboard is no problem. It's fun to make stuff from studio flotsam and jetsam.

Going on vacation tomorrow - to warm and sunny climes. No computer, but a camera will be in my suitcase for sure!
