You do not need to be a professional artist to participate. Anybody can get creative!
Leave a comment here and send me a message (amanda @ karmama.ca) to express your interest before September 9th. On that date, I'll announce the number of participants and the number of cards each person will need to make (one for each participant including yourself and a couple extra for a giveaway to be hosted here.) This is a great advertising opportunity. Include your website on the back of the card. Its like a networking party!
Participants will make trading card size pieces of art (approximately 2.5 by 3.5 inches). They can be horizontal or vertical. They can be made out of anything. You can paint, draw, print, sculpt, cut, paste, knit, sew your cards. The possibilities are endless! You can make multiples, or each piece could be unique. Its totally up to you.
Once you are done, send all your cards to me (I'll message you my address) along with a stamped, self addressed envelop. When I receive all the artwork, I'll assemble the 'decks' and send them out in the mail.
I'll also feature photos of artwork from each participant (with links to your website if you have one) here on karMama.
All artwork must be postdated by Friday September 30th!
Invite your friends. The more the merrier! You will end up with a collection of unique original artworks.
