It’s a new year and that means new year resolutions. I prefer to think of them as what are my “intentions.”
I intend to eat more raw fruit and vegetables.
My art friend CatPratt inspired me to the idea of hosting another swap – this one an “Art Doll” swap – which is something else we swap on our artist trading cards sites.
This might mean including character traits you appreciate about yourself, leave off the ones you don’t. Working on them could be reflective and insightful and when they swap out and make their way about the world, it’s like you are sending that intention out to everyone and you have someone to be accountable to in a way! So I’m hosting the “Self Portrait Doll Swap” that would include yourself and your intentions for the New Year.
We will make 3 dolls to swap – the participants mail them to me, I swap them out and mail back 3 dolls to each person from 3 different artists. That’s why it’s called mail art!
Here is my first one “Super Fruit and Veggie Girl” – art dolls are on heavy stock, any media, jointed with small brads. This one also has all the fruit and veggies able to spin around – as if I’m juggling – -which is another intention, learning to juggle! For real. I’ve got books, bean bags and scarves, to practice with, watched videos…just hasn’t clicked for me for some reason.
