Pat particularly wanted to make a card for her friend, which I forgot to take a photo of. It was quite dramatic with a black and white Japanese print on black cardstock - then a small plate underneath, also black which we stamped with words in opaque white ink. Rounded all corners .. and voila. A gorgeous card.
Then we decided to have some fun. Pat had a couple of magazine photographs of paintings ... perhaps New York. We each picked one and went to work with the materials which were already on the table. Hand made papers, inks, alphabet and number stamps. Pat was quite perplexed so I asked her to ask her card what it wanted. She immediately replied she felt like making black marks across the page. I handed her a black marker. Free hand or straight?, I asked. Straight. I handed her the ruler. Then she was off on her own having fun and being free with it. Here are the final results.
|This was fun. I just kept ripping pieces of different papers, ripping the painting, and putting it on the card. It did stamp some numbers, the most prominent of which are 9 and 5. The painting is of busy streets. Subconsciously, I chose the hours of work. Interesting I thought. Didn't notice it until I was finished the collage.|
