Featured Artist: Kristen part II

I have been away from my blog now for over a month (gosh) and I think it is finally time to finish my featured artist special about the wonderful works I receive from Kristen. Additional to a considerably sized ATC collection I am also the lucky owner of several of her hand drawn envelopes, letters and cards. This girl really has some amazing talent.

I know, the big white patches of paper are a little bit distracting, but I am not really willing to expose either my or her private adresses here, I think whoever reads this will be able to understand that.

This froggy envelope came with some awesome froggy cards inside ;)
And the following fishy envelope has an interesting blob technique as background and the fish are cut out and collaged on. This is a process I would like to explore as well in the future, as it would enable me to make a bunch of background (paper/cards/whatnots) and then add my art on top of that.

And then she also send me a collection of her unique bird cards, again I have to say I am so intrigued by the "blob" background, I really have to try it myself one day...

Yes, yes, the last one wasn't a card, it was another arted up envelope. When I pick the pictures I took for this blog they are kind of small on my screen and so it was hard to tell. I do love the little star tied to his beak though...

Kristen even send me some of her cards with only the linework done, and I have to say I am sooo itching to make them a collaborative project and scan them, print them on watercolour paper, colour them and send the coloured ones back. I have so far been a little hesitant as our styles are very different from each other (which is good, else trading would be boring) and I don't want to be disrespectful to her artwork.

 If you like this idea Kristen, let me know and I will get on it right away ;)

Kristens art and animals make me smile everytime I look at them.

I have more, so much more to post, I will make it a different entry though as already there is a lot of scrolling down involved if you read it all and look at all the lovely art pieces.
