bob dylan song lyrics ATC swap

I have joined another song lyric swap (just couldn't resist). This one is being held on the ATCs for All site, check this site out! I've joined a couple of ATC swaps hosted there by my good friend ~ and partner in crime (art, that is!) Frieda Oxenham -but this was the first time I joined a swap hosted by someone else there. I must say it's been nicely organized and well-run - I'm impresssed. I have really enjoyed working with song lyrics as a theme recently, and this swap is a Bob Dylan songs/lyrics theme! Let me show you what I made . . .

I created all of these on canvas paper which gives a lovely texture but is kind of floppy, so I added another piece of cardstock with the swap info to the back. I used watercolor crayons in my typical messy style, on both the front and the back, along with dylan's lyrics (or bits of them) from some of my favorite songs. Bob Dylan's birthday is May 24th, the day this swap is due! I enjoy chosing the lyrics, figuring out how to illustrate them and creating the composition including the lyrics. I have made a new 'set' of all of my "song lyrics" ATCs, click here to view these ATCs (and more) in a nifty slide show! : ) lenna

  5. Hi Lenna,
    Love your artwork. I found your blog while searching sites in the Bradenton Fl area. We are in Anna Maria and Bradenton. I love to paint and work with mixed media. I am interesting in networking with others and getting together to create in a social environment. Do you know of any in our area? I love getting together with other artistic people and creating. You can reach me at focusint@verizon.net I look forward to talking with you.
