That’s what I did to create today’s postcard. Literally just items in easy reach. I started with a magazine scrap cut out yesterday. To that I added two scrap pieces of wax paper. Then I glued down some matte medium peelings from my table. I had a spool of orangey thread that I grabbed and wrapped around the postcard. To try to unite the whole thing I took a bit of gold acrylic and matte medium and painted over everything. That didn’t do much, so I did it again using black acrylic. That worked better. Then I glued down a very thin scrap of magazine I found at hand. Lastly, while it was still wet, I painted into some of the areas formed by the thread with black watercolor.
