December Art Postcards

I tried so hard to keep up with my art work in December but didn't get any of it posted. So once again, I will post them all in a lump posting and try to do better in 2008. Thanks for looking...please leave a comment if you would. Is good to know someone is out there! LOL


Art Postcards for yahoo group 6:6 swap. I really enjoyed creating these. For the base I used 140# watercolor paper cut into 4"x6" rectangles. I used a stamp for the PostCard wording on the back and drew the lines with a ruler. I still need to fill in my name, email address, title and swap name on the 4 lines but will get that done before I mail them off. The most difficult part for me at the beginning was that we could not use any embellishmemts...no buttons, no ribbon, no lace, nothing at all that was raised up off the paper. Had to be flat when done...


The most fun was just creating with lots of materials and new techniques. Materials used are: patterned paper, transparencies, ephemera (labels, postage stamps, sheet music), distressed inks, distressed embossing powder, oil pastels, fluid chalk, crackle paint, punchinella, rubber stamps, & rub-on letters. Love the layering process as you can tell from the list of materials! Anyway, here are a few of them! Hope you enjoy them!
