Grab What You Can Reach!

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.

    • It’s interesting how some days the work just flow and works. Other days the result is debatable. This one I liked!
