This week's theme was junk, inspired by Roben-Marie finding a grunged-up post card in a parking lot.
Seeing as I just moved, I don't have much junk floating around past receipts from the cross-country drive, I did my page about the help I've been getting from locals. At Jerry's Artarama, one of the cashiers drew me a little map to Tempe Sales, this amazing hole-in-the-wall interior fabric shop. I can't get over all the inspiring (and cheap!) shops in Tempe!
In fact, there's an entire page in my journal filled with directions to stores both known (Michaels, Jo-Ann's) and unknown given to my by Dawn last week while we were out for Starbucks. So these are the things in the bottom of my purse that I treasure for the intent of kindness and excitement between artists behind them all.
And here's Roben-Marie's page with the postcard. Isn't it fab? I love the lettering for junk!
Has it already been a week? Here's the BIG canvas as of this afternoon...
I'm almost finished!
There is one last thing I'd like to say today.
I've been getting emails from people who participated in the Small Art Penpal Swap who never received art from their partners. Around 7 people have emailed me, and I get sad with each one. So if you haven't gotten anything or if you forgot or haven't sent anything out yet, PLEASE let me know (and tell me who your partner is). All my records are on my desktop computer, but I will do my best to figure this all out.
