Monochromatic postcards and a giveaway.

Yesterday I had the enormous pleasure of going to Corrine's studio for some play time with other artists.  It was my second time playing with Corrine and Mandy, and my first time meeting Judy, Barbara and Urvashi.

We had so much fun.
Corrine's invitation suggested we make "winter white" mail art.  Apparently this color-loving group balked, and so she suggested "vintage color" instead.  As it turns out, none of us could resist the lure of Corrine's vibrant paint collection, but I did manage to make a few "vintagey" collages before breaking out the aqua and orange.

I was way too busy making, talking, playing, laughing, eating, and laughing some more to remember to take pictures of this group of wonderful women and the art we all created
(Corrine has a few here)
After I got home I cut my collages into postcards.

Here are a few:

As Hurricane Sandy breathes down our neck, I'm posting fast and furiously over at Mail Me Some Art.  How many videos can I post before the power goes out?

You should pop over there and see the amazing duct tape journals that have been made.
Ridiculously inspiring.

and oh yeah- I'm hosting a giveaway over there too.
