Creating fun mixed media projects is a favorite thing of mine to do. I enjoy participating in several Facebook Art groups that host all sorts of swaps. The most recent swap I am participating in is a swap where we are to create our own "matchbooks" filled with miniature pieces of art that we send to several partners within our group.
This project was a blast! I'd never made a matchbook before so I had to do some research as to what sort of measurements and dimensions I needed to create such a piece. So I got to work making my first one and after it was finished, I was hooked!
Each of these matchbooks holds 3 tiny pieces of artwork for the recipient. As you can see, I love bright colors and whimsical design, so my miniature paintings follow that design style. Each has a Gelli-printed background (thanks to my Gelli inspiring friend Kate Crane!) and then is finished with a watercolored image, such as a little village house, heart or butterfly. Because I enjoy doodling and drawing quirky images, these little paintings are full of my personality and style.
