Kushner Collage Artist Trading Cards
Created for Project Spectrum Elements: FIRE
I save old calendars for occasions such as this. The collages, created for the Artist Trading Card (ATC) Swap were made from a 2006 calendar featuring the vibrant paintings of Robert Kushner.
These cards were not my initial vision, but I enjoyed piecing them together. In the end, I was quite happy with how the colors worked with the base paper (from a set of textured papers I picked up a few years ago…) I do hope that the little cards put a smile on the recipients’ faces!
The first Artist Trading Card swap for Project Spectrum was a bit of a test-run, and we had a few glitches. To those of you who were disqualified from the swap, I do hope that you understand that we needed a line of demarcation. As stated in the original ATC Swap post, if you are interested in participating in the swap, you must create an account and put some information in your profile – it can be as simple as talking about your favorite colors to a whole biography. We are using Swap-Bot to run the matches, and this third-party intervention is actually a big help. Poppins remains to be the administrator of the swap, and I can also help with any questions, etc.
…the next Artist Trading Card swap, for the EARTH element (April/May) will be open until April 17th, you can create an account and sign up for it now! (and don’t forget to add some information about yourself in the profile!)
