026: asian collage
possibly the most random collage i've ever made... entirely composed of leftover stuff that was sitting on my desk!
027: frida quote
the orange flower illustration was cut from a magazine ad, and accidentally ripped while i was getting ready to glue it down. so i ripped and wrinkled it more, and stuck it back together with washi tape. serendipity in action, darlings!
028: abstract new york collage
this is from the day jeff and i went into the city to goof off. it's got part of a high line postcard as its base, a bodhisattva from the rubin museum brochure, and a bunch of random text. oh yeah and some tiny flying fish that have been in my leftovers pile for over a month. because-- weirdly enough-- they just totally WORK in this context, lol!!! :)
029: five last books
this was one of the prompts from the week five list, the typed card slides into the pocket i made from the empty seed packet; the base of the card is a bit of a (already falling apart when i found it!) paperback book cover
030: book quote
i had dymo-ed this quote to use on the ICAD above, but in the end it seemed kind of too big, so i decided to save it and let it be the star of this card, instead! (ps: hey, g: 'member these puppy stickers from thrift usa??!)
031: quilty layers
remember my sos quilt cards from a couple of weeks ago? well, i had a bunch of scraps leftover. they were too small to save but too big to toss, so i glued them randomly to an index card, but then i couldn't decide what else to do, so i put it aside, until the other night when i decided it needed LOTS of rub-ons, a leftover flower, and some twine. yep. that's what it needed, all right! :) :) :)
so have you guessed my favorite? actually, i quite like ALL of these, but if you guessed 028, you are right! i loved that day, i loved the little brochures and things we collected, and i loved coming home and gluing random bits to a card as a keepsake. plus... who doesn't love tiny flyin' fish??! i mean, c'mon!!! :) :) :)
