|Black Lives Matter - Artist Playing Cards|
I really like how these APCs turned out. I can either exchange each month or bow out. I decided to exchange but got so into min-journals I forgot about APCs. Then I got the list of people I had to send to. The APCs weren’t even started but with the participant list I had to get crackin’. I spent Friday afternoon working on them. Of course, I did not know where I was going with the project. I first added some napkin pieces. Then I added the focal points. I had found these wonderful hairdressing signs from Africa. The portraits by these Benin artists were great. So great that I did some research on the art and found a dealer in Philadelphia who was selling their art. I bought a sign which arrived already and is wonderful.
I love the hairstyles. Then I thought I know where this is going. I am going to honor the Black Lives Matters movement. Hence the BLM words. There was something missing though and that is where the black netting from a napkin came in handy. Voila, they were complete. I got them in the mail and thus made my November deadline.
