A Friendly Collaboration

Sharon Mann at Make Art Magic Happens and I recently shared a friendly collaboration with art cards.

It was fabulous fun! We each started artwork on six cards (4″x6″ in size) and mailed them to the other person so they could completeĀ and mail back!

We thought you’d enjoy seeing our results…

These are the cards I started and how Sharon completed them for me:

And below are the cards Sharon started and I completed them for her:

(Sorry some of the completed ones are not in the right order)

I loved the surprise of receiving the cards Sharon completed for me in the mail and seeing her wonderful art added to my beginnings!

I also enjoyed the challenge of finishing Sharon’s cards… they helped me to think outside the “square”!

Have you ever shared a friendly collaboration? Perhaps an art project or writing a story or a poem? I’d love to hear what you did!

Cheers! šŸ™‚

P.S. Thanks Sharon for your wonderfully creative cards and artful exchange! Xo

A Three-Ring Circus Bird

I was experimenting with different collage papers the other day and decided to add watercolor around the glued papers.

Some of the papers I used were from Sharon Mann, when we did our collage paper exchange. Ā If you missed that post, you can read more about it here: Ā The Speedball Bird

Other papers were from my own collage experiments that I had sewn on my sewing machine and then printed on the Gelli-Plate.

I made two tags for my art journal and found they had a ā€œcircusā€ feel to them:


That is how todayā€™sĀ weird birdĀ came to be… He is from the ā€œFlying Circus!ā€ šŸ˜‰


A Three-Ring Circus Bird

I used Sharon Mannā€™sĀ collage papers for this bird! Ā Thanks again Sharon! šŸ™‚

I finished my ā€œcircusā€ tags with a few pen doodles:


Do you have happy memories from attending a circus? Ā I hope you share them with me!

HappyĀ Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! šŸ™‚
