Well I had never done anything but write or doodle on these stationary supplies so I thought why not try. I used everything I could get my hands on to see what it would do on this thin paper. I tried to apply acrylic medium to thicken the paper (did not work well, curled the paper up as it dried), water colour, ink, acrylic, alcohol ink, pencil, pen etc and the results are above. These fun pieces will be for sale with a zillion others at the "Sticky Show" at The Arts Factory in Vancouver B.C.
The deadline to have the art received is Monday March 25 so there is still time if you want to give it a try! The great thing is they just fit in a regular envelope and one stamp, how easy is that!

April 15 Email Update: Our most recent art show STICKY was a huge success with over 140 artists participating and almost 700 people attending the one-night only show. We'll post pictures from the event soon! Some unsold works will also be available to buy online in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned!
