    Soooooo, I'm trying to figure out how I'd do this without going all MMA on it when I'm juried in at P&P! How do I go about getting accepted as MMA?

    Hmmm...looking at my stuff, I've only ever done one or two things in MMA; makes it hard to get juried in! lol

    You don't need to be MMA for this, WEL. The added text only accounts for a small bit of your card, so us P&P folks are safe.

    I will try to get some examples up asap for everyone.

    Is it OK to use atcs that we have posted here or other site? I have some that would like some words added!

    I did some research on Found Poetry art. It's more interesting than I initially thought and I already loved it. I'm trying to get my 15 yr old introverted nephew into art so the first challenge I made and sent to him is this theme. He likes what I mailed to him but I don't know if I'll ever get any back. LOL

    I don't see why not, Juanita Rojas!

    & Angie, that's such an awesome way to introduce someone to art! He's a lucky guy to have an aunt like you!
