Collage birthday card for a friend who loves red poppies! The poppy flower heads were painted on rice paper using Japanese brush painting technique. The flower stems & leaves, the earth & the butterfly/lion are handmade papers made in India. The strips of paper on the side are one of my old Japanese brush paintings cut up. The envelope matches the Poppy flower theme!
What’s on my Art Studio Table? A plethora of collage greeting cards! The starting point for these cards was a stack of printed postcards that someone gave me ages ago. Layering papers & adding glitter & gems is just so addicting. (Not to mention that all my problems go away while I’m cutting & pasting!)
NATURE COLLAGE GREETING CARDS – So soothing to cut & paste papers to make some Autumn inspired greeting cards, which I will teach to my card group in November. Gutted an old garden and bird books for the paper ephemera inspiration. Adding some metallic copper paint to the chestnut colored leaves to bring in some magic! These cards will be my sample cards to give ideas of how each person will make their card uniquely theirs.
