Oh yes...winter.... Time for another iHanna DIY Postcard Swap!
This time I was torn between two ideas, and this one won out because it took less time...
...but at least I already have a plan for the Spring Swap!
For these cards, I was inspired by the leftover paint on some transparency film I use
to hold my GelliArts printing plate down while I'm making prints.
There was a bit of randomness here and there;
haphazard, unintentional art, on this see-through surface.
And when I put it over some of the gel prints I made, it created this cool effect.
This was the perfect project for me right now.
Creating without thinking, just letting the layers create themselves.
I decided I would add some paint to the transparencies while I was making the gel prints.
Just cleaning the brayer and allowing it to roll off the edge of the scrap paper onto the film,
or cleaning the stencil and adding a "stamp" of sorts to the film.
I made quite a few gel prints, but I stuck to the Bristol (card stock) prints for the postcards.
It was fun seeing how the transparencies and prints went together.
I decided to sew the transparency to the card stock, and threw in a magazine clipping...
...an inspirational word that would just "float" between the layers.
And a sweet bonus!? All the scraps of transparency and gel print that I have left to play with!
THANKS FOR VISITING!
