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.
I’m putting some new cards in my etsy shop this week. They are blank inside, so they can be used to write a note, or as an any-occasion card, really. The floral card is printed on linen card stock from a watercolor I did and the gentleman card was done as a digital collage, then printed on smooth matte white card stock. My cards always include envelopes, too!
This is a silly one. I made an envelope from this leftover piece of red and white card stock, and then thought I needed to make a card that would coordinate. I played around with other small pieces of scraps, but didn’t really like the look of abstract shapes I was getting. Then I thought this would make a great dress fabric, so I cut a neckline, glued the scrap to the card and drew in this woman with a micron pen. Added a little light watercolor for skin tone and cheeks. It’s a bit rough, but I like it, and now I have a card to send someone!
