Project Embrace - storybeader's cards for children


Project Embrace.  Isn't that a wonderful name for a creative venture?  Erika, over at artfulrising, is calling for artists "to follow your passion and to help others with your talent."  Back in September, she asked her website readers to create a card or postcard that a family could use while staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Texas, dealing with a devastating health crisis.  It's a wonderful thought and I'm up to the challenge.


I've had cute, cuddly elephants floating around in my head of late.  The one who started it all was for my art journaling class.  Then I made a mixed media piece for my Etsy shop.  I’ve been planning these cards (and elephants) for some time now, and it was so much fun to do.


My process?  I printed my elephants on 100% recycled construction paper.  Then got some envelopes and cut the paper down to fit.  Because I couldn’t just have pink elephants, I printed some blue elephants too.  I added washi tape, ink, and watercolors.


There’s still time to send Erika cards, but she needs them by November 4th.  Embrace the Project!  Read all about it on her website.

Thank you, Deb!! I saw your new print in your shop and thought it was super cute (I hearted it) so it is great that you are using the elephants for the cards. :)
