Women & Creativity is a women's art group that celebrates their 10th anniversary in 2015. To commemorate a remarkable decade, they are offering a fun project for the public-an art card exchange! The deadline to sign up is March 15th.

Tête-à-Tête Trading Cards asks you to beautify 10 trading cards (they’ll provide them) with poems, paintings, prints, whatever you see fit, and return them by April 15, 2015. You will then receive a set of 10 cards back, each made by a different person who played along. It's a great way to share some of your work, and collect small pieces from other artists.
Here are some examples of art trading cards from Opus Arts Supplies. They're usually 2 1/2" x 3", and can be ANYTHING...typically, they're drawings, painting, collages, or photos. Your imagination is the limit. Some people have collections of, say-all rabbits, or all fairies. I've seen neat collections based on landscapes, a certain state, or a hobby, like ballet. I was thinking of starting a collection of art in a certain color palette...like cards featuring red as a predominate color.
I'm going to play-it sounds like a neat project. I hope you'll play along, too! I look forward to seeing the cards I get back. I plan on framing them all together. Please join us. You can make a voluntary donation of $5-15 to help pay for the shipping fees, but if you can't provide that, you're still welcome to participate for free.
