I’m still working on a small piece I shared with you earlier here. I’ve added quite a bit to this but I still don’t feel quite done.
While I pondered the seeming endless possibilities open to me, I realized that my stack of junk mail postcards is almost gone. Naturally I jumped at the opportunity to refill the supply and — more importantly — feel a sense of completion.
In no time at all I had mail painted with gesso drying. Then I pulled out a set of rubbing plates recently gifted to me and I rolled acrylic paint on, using the plates like stamps. This fern plate got a second color of paint and a rotation; finally I used some watercolor paints and a two-inch brush and had fun dabbling it on.
If you’re just learning about my junk mail frenzies, read back from here about other projects where I turned recycle into something fun and useful.
