Texture Postcard

Yesterday I created some more paper from a flax milk carton, which leaves me four panels in one piece. I cut it in half, and folded two panels together to make a long postcard (apprx. 7.5 x 3.75 inches), painted and texturized it, and am now sending it to a friend. I do not worry that she will see it, because she has no internet service! :)

I had fun with this! I painted a base color, added some torn and dye stained pieces of a coffee filter, and put on some heavy gel medium through a stencil. I also imbedded some metal clock faces and a small gear, added some gems and waited for everything to dry. Then I added more paint detail, micron pen, and covered the uneven edges in copper leaf pen. And out it goes today!

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


  1. I love all the texture and think it's fabulous! Love you!
