Storks

Our hostess this week is Kristin and she’s chosen the theme of ‘STORKS’

What do you think of when you think of storks? Do you think of the characteristically popular stork delivering a baby? How about the well known Aesop’s fable “The fox and the Stork”  or perhaps the Oriental stork depicted in images of the Orient?

However you want to present your stork and with whatever medium you enjoy using please join in, we’d love to see your postcard size art! (make sure your art is 6 x 4″ in size!)

Kristin has made us a lovely piece of art to inspire us all!

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Even though it’s not April, it’s started raining here in England… but the flowers are blooming and we thought this would be a lovely theme for us to have at the time of year.

Make your postcard 6 x 4″ in size ~ out of anything you like! We accept all mediums here on SPA. Then upload it to your blog, flickr or photostream and leave a comment with a direct link to your postcard for us all to share your creative-ness!
