This year we are lucky to have had a beautiful new coffee shop open up in town by local Alex Vogel. (I hope I spelled your name right, Alex!) The treats are amazing and the comfort first class. I highly suggest you check it out if you haven't already done so.
Artist Collette Goutier-Stewart and I were lucky enough to be able to move some of our art from our February Skeena Diversity show over to Xander's and it is currently still hanging. I missed getting photos of some of the works on the beams, so you'll have to get in there to check it all out before we take it down! :)
For contact info I left some business cards I made out of saved cardboard coffee sleeves. These were fun and easy to make! I took a piece of carboard the same size as a business card and traced it onto both sides of a clean, but used coffee sleeve. (I drank a lot of coffee this winter!)
Then, I cut out each new business card sized piece, leaving the top curve of the sleeve shape, because I liked it. I used a cream coloured acrylic paint mixed with acrylic gloss medium (to help seal the paint and cardboard) to swipe on across the smooth part of the card. (The back side is ribbed.)
Once all the cards dried I hand wrote each card with a artist quality black fine liner pen. I need to work on hand printing.
Not wanting to put my phone number on there as I only have a cell number, I put my website address and my Instagram account info.
The cards turned out well! You can't really write on the back of them because of the ribbed texture, but they are recycled, so that can make everyone feel good, and they fit inside your wallet like a normal business card! Win-win.
Passionate for creating, I record my artistic projects and ideas for the joy of sharing with you and challenging myself to continually grow as an artist.
