The cards are all made of found imagery, collaged paper remnants, and (one of my FAVORITE materials) wallpaper samples.
Tossed aside wallpaper samples are also my most used materials - especially the vintage remakes. The textures are much more of the appeal, I think, though the patterns are hard to beat.
The outfits of the ladies in this Burly-Q painting are also all wallpaper.
I think that the tactile nature of these patterned and textured papers work well on the cards - as something handheld (briefly) cherished.
The problem now becomes that because I used found images and paper samples, they are one of a kind and once they're sold and gone - I have a hard time giving them up. But selling them is the point - especially since I never give cards. So my pictures of them will just have to do. Or maybe I'll hold on to one or two...
These aren't all! There's more on Flickr!
