Sunny greetings dear art friends!
Recently, I read this book called the Language of Flowers. The story itself was sad and quite depressing at times. But what I loved about it was learning about different flowers and their meanings. Back in Victorian times, people used flowers to communicate their true feelings. I have always been fascintated by this notion and have amassed quite a collection of old postcards with this theme. I will have to make a sheet for you soon. : )
This book was the inspiration behind our new art swap: Garden and Flower ATCs. Have you been out enjoying the beautiful sunshine lately? Playing in the garden perhaps? Smelling flowers on your morning walks? Let's create Artist Trading Cards (2.5" x 3.5") with all of these natural delights in mind.
Note: these lovely floral ATCs are by Jackie McColl.
What to make: 6 ATCs with a garden and flower theme (you will receive the same number that you send in)
Required ARTchix products: Each ATC must include an ARTchix item of your choice.
Suggested ARTchix products: Flowers Shop By Theme
How to sign up: Email Nikki at email@example.com by July 29, 2013.
Mail your 6 ATCs along with return postage ($5 to USA and Canada. $10 to International) to Nikki Smith (our guest ARTchix swap hostess in Oregon, USA) by August 6, 2013.
