Learn how to create adorable mixed-media art to send to loved ones, friends, and even strangers via snail mail—then share in the happiness it brings.

Author Sarah J. Gardner has made it her mission to help others find their creativity and inspiration through mixed-media art. In Share Your Joy, she offers her idea for how to share joy via handmade postcards, note cards, and other items that can be mailed to anyone around the world and put a smile on their face. That’s where Sarah gets her joy, and with the techniques and step-by-step projects in this book, she will help you find it too.

Working on papers you have painted and that can be drawn and painted over (what Sarah calls “art papers”), you will learn to use collage, stenciling, found objects, watercolor and acrylic paints, and more to create art to share with others.

Included in the book are:
  • Step-by-step projects for making shareable art
  • Interviews with “art swappers” who’ve sent and received art for years
  • Inspirational prompts, quotes, and affirmations to keep your creativity levels up
  • Suggestions for how to make inspirational journals and sketchbooks to work inside

Experience the fun and happiness of making shareable, mixed-media art with Share Your Joy!
