Dateline: New art cards: "sew red"

Posted by andrea in: - Mail art

So these are the cards I finished at Spins & Needles last night.


I thought you might be interested in seeing the idea that launched the concept. Well, it started with this:


As you see, I’m on a bit of a fruit and vegetable carving kick. :)

And here’s a peek at the back too. I surprised myself with those dangly bits. They just sort of came out of nowhere. I do like how art can take you into unexpected places, don’t you?


Three of the four cards are available for trade at atcards.com.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
