More Abstract Postcards


I've been at it again... exploring the world of the abstract and making post cards.  Really loving the freedom that comes from a blank slate and no expectations... just DO something and take it wherever it leads you....

I followed much the same process as Monday's post, HERE.  Supplies used:

- 8.5" x 11" white card stock (Neenah Solar White)
- Studio 490 background stamp
- Ranger jet black archival ink
- torn paper napkin collage
- Ranger glue n seal (matte)
- Ranger mini brayer 2"
- Craft paint - black, white, and mahogany/brown
- Golden fluid acrylics - green gold
- Hand carved stamps (leaves)
- Inka Gold (gold)

Here's the next the last post, I made one 8.5" x 11" sheet and then cut it down to 4 post cards, 4.25" x 5.5" each.

and a few closer shots...

... and the 4 individual post cards...

Hope you're enjoying the post cards... I'll be back next week with a step-by-step for the next batch! Stay tuned!

First, I love how you described your blank page and the opportunity it provides: "...the freedom that comes from a blank slate and no expectations..." Magnificent! Next, I just love this new set of four, Ellen. Creating, as you have, makes a "family" on your 8-1/2 x 11 page. Each segment belonging to the whole, but each segment uniquely different! Bravo!
