Postcards from the Edge of Covid-19

I created some postcard kits using stock in my house- it is really amazing what you can find in your stash when you have time.
Lots of grunge, lots of layers.  My favorite part is the globe.


So the globe came all in one piece, painted the water blue and land masses green.

Let the globe dry, lightly sand, then ink now it looks old and worn.  Next cut apart land and water.


Now put it back together, but the land masses are raised using pop dot.  Love how this looks!!!

Again lots of grunge, lots of layers, lots of little accents pieces.


When i painted this one, I faded the color out at the bottom.  Once this is sanded and ink....


it looks like this.  Really like the final look.


Postcard 3
I used old rubons from Tim Holtz, you can't get this rubons anymore which is shame.  I wish there were more rub ons out there, I love a rub ons.

I made a belt with filmstrip and a buckle.  The filmstrip is great, it is partially transparent but the outline of film is visible.  That whole there but not there.

Postcard 4
Here i used two tags folded over edge and attached with twine.  Whenever you can add twine makes for fun.



I covered the bottom of tag but left the top the original manilla, I really love the tab around tag hole and don't like to cover it up. Inked around the edge, a lot.


Here are some goodies i used to create all those layer and clusters:
- rub ons
- gears
- paper emphemera
- metal tabs
- paper clips
- stapler
- bingo chips
- index labels
- tags
- twine
- buckles
- hitch posts
- thread spools
- medallions
