Feeling Raw: An ATC

Feeling Raw

Sometimes you just don’t feel like creating something beautiful.  On an old playing card: tissue paper, string, magazine text, acrylic paint and shoe polish.

I love anything that has a sense of decay and age to it, and the tissue paper and color combinations provide that, while the overall tone happens to match how I’ve been feeling lately.

  1. This is really expressive – you have created a sense of age and decay without losing the inherent beauty. Interesting too that it is tied up – restricted almost.

    • Thanks Jill! The sense of restriction you mention is dead-on. I wasn’t thinking about that consciously when I created this, but part of the feeling is of confinement, of being restricted by my own emotions. Interesting how that came out in the card without my even intending it!

I'd love your thoughts! Leave a reply.
