Artist Playing Card January 2022 - 11


No. 11 is the last of this series of playing cards.  I enjoyed creating these so much I may do a series of 52 using a whole deck of cards.  I could then make a box to house them.  I will have to think about this as incorporating the twelve royal cards might prove to be quite challenging.

Artist Playing Card January 2022 - 09


Making these APCs was so much fun I might have to do another series.  Revisiting them after making them weeks ago is kind of strange.  I know I made them but when I look at them here online I think “Did I make that one?”

Artist Playing Card January 2022 - 08


The signature at the bottom is from a check written in 1872.  Can you imagine a document you signed being used in 100 or more years?  It would never have come into my imagination until I used it myself in this piece.  So maybe something I have written, a letter for instance, will surface years to come.  I will be long gone by then. :-)

Artist Playing Card January 2022 - 07


I started working vertically on this card as I wanted to use the tree. The piece  ended up with a combination of vertical and horizontal ephemera.  I like that the orange highlighting tape had a flaw…see by the spade.  I like how the red grounds the composition.  Yesterday I was asked about which highlighting tape I recommend.  So I put the link from Amazon in yesterday’s comments on the one I purchased.  I am sure there are many but that is the one I chose and lucked out liking it.

I am so loving the colored highlighting tape I got on Amazon and Etsy.  This time it is a bluish green color.  I really like how the five layers come together.

I love it when I can get a larger piece of the crustiness left on a gelli plate.  It appears just above Netique in the above.  It peeled off in one nice loveliness.
