Birds and dots...dots and birds

Whenever I go on away with one group of friends for an art retreat we always make cards for a card swap. For this batch I used paint chips (the long ones with 5 coordinating colors) and torn-out pages from old books. And of course, my favorite Signo white gel pen. Little white dots just make everything better. As do little birds. And birds and dots together? Well, that's the shizznit!


And if you look really, really closely...you can even learn a few random and outdated facts about New Zealand and Pakistan!

These cards are such fun. I'm a big fan of birds and houses and old books and paper. Thanks for sharing those.

Such fun comments...thank you! One of the very best finds an artgirl can make is one of those paint-chip-sampler doo-dahs...the kind that has all of the individual chips held together by a little post at the bottom, so they can fan out like a deck of rainbow cards. Find one of those, and the restraining order from the hardware store will have expired by the time you run out again.
