Connect with your tribe!

ATCs in progress
I met some wonderful woman at an Art Retreat that I went to last October in London. We shared art { and art supplies! } our lives & stories and just had so much fun together.
As we live all over the world - USA, Germany, Great Britain, Luxembourg and Australia - it will be hard to see each other again. We are still in contact, but we would dearly like to see each others art. To see how each of us and our art, are evolving. That's why we have decided to trade small pieces of artwork every three months. 
Our first trade will be soon and the theme of this first round will be { faces }.

After cutting out four ATC sized cards I then placed them side by side { to “connect" them } and using old book pages, gesso, black paint & then a swoosh of neon pink oil pastel for the grounding.

I was thinking of using four faces that are somehow connected together, yet able to stand alone.
I loosely sketched the profile images on the cards & highlighted the silhouettes

They're coming along quite well now.
Hope to get them finished soon to mail them out to my tribe.

Connect with likewise woman and stay in touch. It's such a wonderful experience.

Wishing you a wonderful creative time.



  1. These look amazing Michelle! And what a great idea to have them connected like that!

  2. Oh Michelle, diese ATCs sind sowas von fantastisch, ich bin absolut begeistert.
    Gerade die Kolorierung gefällt mir total... alle zusammen sind ein Traum! Die Glückliche, die sie bekommen wird!
    Schönes Wochenende von Ulrike, gerade mit Tochter zu Besuch, freu!

  3. I love how you painted all the faces in profile. Its amazing you can make them all look so similar. Can't wait to see the finished piece. Hugs-Erika
