A few weeks ago Julia and her friend, from Wales, Bonnie came round to play art all day. We stopped for a pub lunch!
After they had gone I got inspired by the materials we had been working with and created some ACEO - Art Cards Editions and Originals - just in case you did not know. Also known as Artists Trading Cards. I finished framing 6 of them today.
Strips of scrapbook paper
Citra Solv altered National Geographic paper
Stamped with Stazon Black and decorative stamp
Flowers from a paper napkin.
Edwardian images from an old magazine book. Brer Rabbit from a 1950's Annual. Victorian newspaper small adverts. I used one layer of three ply paper napkins. A favourite of mine as the napkin is so thin you can see the layer below. All finished with Liquitex glazing medium, laid on quite thick. The backing is old quiz cards.
Framed in Ikea Riba frames, I have recessed the art works and mounted them on black sketching paper.
I did a production line of 40 and it used up lots of oddments of collage materials.
