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!
