Inspiration

Collision

I know you were here.

So I'll save my words.

Maybe.
Look at my new greens. I love green.

Napkin, of course.

Making postcards and ATCs.


Armed with plain paper copies of my ART.

And a goof print on really really good paper.

First thing I did was cut out the double printed area.
Actually, I really really like what happened and it made me think of this deVinci quote.

three and three

I don't think so.

Oh look, a card.
More

First postcard.

Second postcard.

Hey, a canvas. I see something here.
No.
Third Postcard.
And that is a little bit of what I did.
Now if you missed some of that and have a question, just ask me in comments and I will answer you in comments.
Enough for now,
Sharon

  1. Oh what fun you had!I want to play this game. I spent the day replenishing my business cards and making some envelopes for mail art. But it was fun too. While on vacation I acquired new toys to play with. I read someplace in your blog that it's never too late to swap napkins so I want to do it.I have some nice textured ones I think you will like.

    so charming as your. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Holy crazy crap! I'm SO glad I came over to visit you today! I have to do a LO in a circle journal and the theme is "graffiti." I am SO gonna lift some of your ideas here. You friggin' rock!!! Thank you so much for sharing, Sharon (and Norah!)

  4. Sharon, I have been asked by non-quilters why I like to cut a square of fabric into little pieces then sew them back up into a different square. Just because it's fun, I say. Now I see you cut up a picture into small pieces and put it back together into a different picture. We are different, yet the same. I loved reading this post!!!!! And, oh yeah, green is my favorite color.....THANKS. Pat at birdnestontheground

  7. I now learn you love green.......o.k. then.
    What is the first piece with squares and writing and paint colors?

    don't you just love making postcards. Little pieces of fun to send all over the place. Will you sue the votive candle technique??

  8. To answer Rella's question:
    The top photo is a watercolor block of paper where I have used a pencil to write stuff and make squares. Just something I needed to do. I knew it would be covered up but I really like writing with pencil on watercolor paper. Then I added some color in a few of the little squares. New paint. Had to use it.

    Since I didn't use watercolor I didn't need to seal with votive candle. Actually I sealed with Gel/Gloss and then I wished I had not. I would have used wax instead and melted it. Something I have not done before.

    So, when I get back to the ATCs, that is what I will do.

    Thanks for the questions/comments

  18. Lots of inspiration here. I like the way you cut the sheet of paper to get postcards and ATC's.

    BTW, whatever Rella has going on with typing I have too. I blame it on using a laptop. I hate typing on a laptop.

  19. I actually liked the squares with colors and text. I think it would make a wonderful background all by itself.

  21. How come it always works out so effortlessly spot-on for you? It's always the right size, colours, shapes... Where can I buy such magic?
    Is it one of the invisible napkin layers? :-)

  22. To answer Miss*Laurence's questions:
    It doesn't feel effortless, but it does feel fun. I try not to have an expectation of the end results when I begin. Just one step at a time. Each step is a challenge as towhat the next thing will be. After the first napkin layer, I used Golden liquid acrylic green which is translucent and gives color but you can still see the layers beneath. Then in a few areas I added a second napkin. I wasn't necessarily happy with that as it blocked too much but it was good "enough" for me. And that's the magic, accepting each step as good "enough" even if it presents another challenge.
