Ladies' Hats

Ladies' Hats

I started a series of four postcards over a week ago.  Yesterday I worked on this one, Ladies' Hats.  I added tar gel over a stencil to the lower portion of the card after I had already scanned it.  There has to be some surprise for the intended receiver! :-)  My friend Michele had used tar gel in this manner on a round robin journal page and I loved the technique.  So I have been using it in some of my work lately. Thanks Michele.

Hi there john. What dies the tar gel do through the stencil? I can't see from the photo.
Does it give texture with transparency ?
I enjoy your posts - always inspiring. A friend and I have just started a postcard swap - because of reading your blog! Thank you
