Library Catalog Cards never looked so good. These were on their way to the dump until a light bulb went on.
It seems that not even a cake can escape me when it comes to color!
Beads in an array of color eagerly await the chance to dangle or wrap themselves around my wrist.
Here's another catalog card that almost got away. Here I tried a little graffiti background.
Even muted colors work as long as the subject stands out. This is a post card that I made one summer while exchanging them with Jolene from HippyHippyHooray . It's amazing what we sent off to each other that summer.
Purple and Pink and Ruby and Ochre and Blue and sigh, I could go on and on and on. While going through my files I discovered a few oldies but goodies splashed with color. Goes to show that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" applies to my art style. That is, when it comes to vibrant shades and hues.
I once played in a group that altered withdrawn catalog library cards on their way to the dump. What an awesome idea to "play green" before "green" was more than just another beautiful color. I still have a decent supply of unadorned catalog cards if anyone would like to have some. I'll gladly mail them to you. Just send me a self-addressed stamped envelope. Oh and e-mail me so I can send you my address. It would be great to see what you create from your cards in the future whether you have a blog or not. Send me your links when your ready to show the world how you've altered your cards OR send me pics and I'll post them here on my blog. Hope there are some enthusiasts out there!
