Artist Trading Cards!

I've had the pleasure of participating in the 2nd swap of ATC's with the Art Therapy Alliance group. About 75 of us art therapists are participating this time around, creating 4 cards with the theme of "Collage Unleashed." I can't wait to get my 4 back in the mail in a couple of weeks!

Here are my 4 that I sent in:

About my cards:

1. This card is about the journey we are all on. A car traveling down a road, into the unknown journey ahead. Seize the day, sometimes it's "now or never," for the opportunity of a lifetime.

2. This card is about the healing power of art, which is why I included "painting for a cure." Art helps us "get the picture" in more ways than one!

3. The sunflower card is about growing, and in most cases, we like our growth to be secure. The flower is reaching towards the sun, soaking in the nourishment for the desired growth.

4. This card was all about the passion of art. It is a part of our soul, from which our passions come.
