One of the ways I thought of to help me focus (word of the year for me this year) my direction is to select a personal motif for each month. Whether I work in my journal, mail art, or an external challenge, I'm going to try to incorporate my personal motif - this month HEARTS (big surprise, right?) I'm hoping that by limiting my focus on the MANY directions I can go, it will help me really explore a topic/motif in all the media I enjoy.
Stitching, practice my lettering, stencils and stamps, heart cut from cardboard. - I had one extra so it's going to Featuring Magazine in their call for mail art (read more here). You have a few days longer to get one in the mail if you'd like to participate.
Three heart tags for the IA swap using foil on the background, paint, washi, cardboard hearts.
