More mail art love. This postcard is 5" x 7". I doodled the address side while listening to the State of the Union message tonight. The paper on the address side is some of my "paint waste" paper - I always save it to use in projects. The edging of the postcard is machine stitching.
I've been re-working a 42"H x 16"W x 1"D canvas that I painted and texturized 5 years ago. I never cared for it, and it's been leaning against a wall upstairs ever since I 'finished' it. I finally decided to just do the whole thing over- make it into something entirely different. Due to the previous areas of collage and texture, there are some *odd* shapes and protrusions here and there, but they don't bother me at all. My first job was to give the whole thing two coats of black gesso. Check.
Then draw tree with white pencil. Check. Rip 1873 newspaper ephemera (published on my birthday of Feb. 16!) into bits and collage onto the tree outline - check.
Go weird with design elements - check. Seal all with PPA. Check. Hang on wall. Check. Post picture - done.
I forgot I had created 3 ATCs 2 weeks ago- here they are. The images of people are from my fave Ten Two Studios.
Another bracelet to share. This is again all glass beads. (SET TAKEN)
The earrings are my trademark Glitz-Oh! fabric-centered, beaded earrings. They are extremely light-weight, and dangle from copper-toned niobium ear wires. Niobium is a hypoallergenic alloy that comes in a variety of color tones. (Niobium alloys are used in surgical implants because they do not react with human tissue.)!
