I was playing with some faux glaze that was left over from a kitchen painting project.
I mixed it with some acrylic paint from my studio and used a painters comb to brush through the paint.
I added bits of oil pastel and some stampings
I'll be able to use this paper later for other projects
I experimented with some other color combinations on the brown paper
I was so inspired by the materials that I got in my fabric swap with Lorna from Artymess that I made some postcards with some bits
The sari fabric bits were fabulous along with a deteriorating old silk scarf that belonged to my mother
I had been waiting to used this distressed abandoned quilting squares that I picked up at a yard sale.
I used iron-on Pellon to stick it to the cardboard for this postcard.
I was also inspired by Corrine at Dosfishes to make up some large mail art envelopes for later use.
This Russian newspaper arrived crumpled in a box from a gallery that was returning my season's jewelry.
