This series of swaps is to encourage creating artwork using at least three different techniques. I think we all tend to fall into a rut of doing things the comfortable way -- this is to encourage a bit of exploration with different media. I will be trying to post a new theme about once a month (sorry for the couple of months break from the series -- I needed time to get my gardens under control before the summer heat).
This swap's theme is a bit more open-ended than usual. You can pick any summer insect as your subject. We probably all have a summertime favorite -- dragonflies, cicadas, ladybugs, monarchs, lightening bugs, June bugs, praying mantis, luna moths, hummingbird moth, swallowtail butterfly --- you get the idea. If you want to go over to the dark side there are aphids, mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, earwigs, cabbage moths, etc. Pick an insect you will enjoy exploring and portraying.
Examples of some of the techniques you can try on your ATCs include: Hand painting or Illustration, Stamping, Embossing, Masking, Resist, Collage, Mosaic, Digital Hybrid, Hand-carved prints, Metal or Fabric Crafting.
One ATC to each of two partners (2 ATCs total)
Subject: Summer Insect (you might have noticed that all of my examples are summer insects from the mid-west USA. Certainly feel free to share a summer insect from your neck of the woods).
You must use at least three different techniques to create your ATC. Please add a note to your partner listing or describing the techniques you used.
