Finally back at work on some new collages. This is a digital piece, all done on the computer, using much of the old books pages, letters and images I’ve been collecting and scanning. The flower basket is a black and white image that I hand colored. Hope you like it! Oh, and I’m having some blank notecards made with this design, as well as an 8″ x 10″ print ready for framing – they’ll be available for sale soon.
Going through my bins of fabric today, it occurred to me that sewing together some little scrappy bits and attaching them to card stock would make cute note cards. And writing a few encouraging words, or a funny Mae West quote (“too much of a good thing is wonderful”), would give them some more interest. The text from a book on the green linen fabric just struck my funny bone and could certainly be used to describe me too many times!
I’ve been updating my etsy shop and just added a new set of four greeting cards. The top two cards shown below have birthday greetings, the other two can be used for any occasion. All are blank inside, so you can write a nice, long, heartfelt note. I like to package my cards in kraft paper and twine before I mail them off in a USPS mailer. I usually put a little surprise in there, too, something I made, like a tiny notebook or some gift tags. There will be a few more items added this week as well.
