Another Collage Postcard

The reason I do a lot of postcard art is because with this illness, it's a lot shorter timewise to create a postcard, so I can still have the joy of creating, and yet go back and lie down! But I miss making bigger things, so I have started a painting which I've wanted to do, but have been putting off. For right now, here is the latest postcard for you to enjoy!

(click for details)
Mixed media includes collaged tissue strips, various paper bits, acrylic paint, rubber stamping, part of a lace doily, texture strip, stabilo pencils oil pastels, and then the top images and gems. The original postcard was a black and white advertising card. The texture strip is something found in the sewing notions, but I forget exactly what it was. The bird is a Dresden Scrap, as it was originally published in the 1930's. 

While I was on the porch photographing this, I could hear a storm coming, so I tried a few shots of the sky and clouds, and even took a couple of shots of one of the 6 hanging baskets we have on the front porch.

AngelWings Begonias, Petunias, Sweet Potato Vine and I don't know the name of the really small leafed hanging plant on the left.

Come see my latest postcards I've received on Postcards Buffet!


  1. Lovely painting and your hanging baskets are beautiful!
    We finally had RAIN today ! It has been a long time and I can see things perking up already. Hopefully it will rain more in the next few days.
    Take care,. Hugs.........

  2. It's all so lovely. How I wish I had some artistic abilities! The little flower(s) you couldn't identify, is that perhaps lobelia? Hope you're doing well, health-wise.
