I have a friend who is a really great photographer, and many of her photos are undisputed works of art, in my opinion at least!
But (like all us artists) every photo she takes is not a success. A few nights ago we took some of her less-than-successful experiments and cut them up, and then glued them to pieces of card-stock paper to make our own postcards.
Her idea is to use a computer program to digitally "cut and paste" some photos into collages for postcards.... my idea is the hands-on approach with a ruler & carpet knife, glue stick & heavy paper!
She has a lovely open mind and so agreed to try the "hands-on" method with me. (not so sure I would be interested in trying the "mousing" method - oh, my dismally closed mind!)
These are a couple that I came up with:
Next I would like to take them to a print shop and get copies made on card stock paper, have them cut - et voilâ: handmade, original postcards!
