I'm very much enjoying this collage project. This is the 5th in the One-Color series, and incorporates found images and lettering, each of which prominently feature aqua. The 88 near the upper right is a stamp I received while living in the Netherlands, so it has special meaning to me.
The collage consists of clipped magazine images pasted onto a blank watercolor postcard, then scanned. I ran it through Waterlogue, then manipulated it further in Photoshop. I had intended to add pointed-pen lettering, but didn't want to add clutter. What do you think?

Lastly, I brush-lettered text, then scanned and layered over the completed image. Lots of Fun--looking forward to the next one!

To help develop my eye for composition, I clipped images from magazines (decluttering and making art at the same time! I pasted the images onto a watercolor postcard, including a salvaged postage stamp. I digitally manipulated these to add texture, then layered brush lettering on top.
I'm working on several more of these collages. I also want to start incorporating scans of some of my sketches. A fun project.

So far, I'm keeping up. This is the 6th and I not only designed a collaged-style post-card, but I've written one note inside a purchased card. I have boxes of cards collected during my travels and I need to use them up! It's hard, though, I always want to use my own designs.
Happy Valentines Day, all!
These postcards are an enjoyable, but time-consuming endeavor. I tell myself they're good for developing my eye for design!

This piece was created from magazine pages, scrap paper, and a used postage stamp, then run through the Waterlogue app. Brush lettering was scanned and layered in Photoshop.
