Black and White and Red (All Over)

Two artist trading cards, made in summer 2016. The background for each is taken from a dictionary. I do love that paper.

    Hi Claudia I just had a trip down your ATC memory lane (tag) to see the huge variety of these cards and read about how you do them.There is such a huge variety and I love them. And now that i know a bit more about your recycled bases you have inspired me, Louise

    Thank you. I’m glad I could provide information to help! I love making ATC’s because of their small size and focus – somehow suits my impulse to experiment or to work quickly and keep moving – and yet so often they have unexpected depth or interest to them. I just love that. I hope that you try some, and if you do, and you ever have any questions you think I could answer, I’d be very happy to do so.

    I can feel the wind blowing against the person in the red scarf. Your people always inspire me. I also am a dictionary page fan. I actually have 4-5 different dictionaries I use in my collages. I’m getting into other reference books too. I also love maps in collage.

    Thank you! Maps, yes, too, I love them. I also got a shorthand book a while back and sometimes use pages from it (while wishing, once again, that I had learned shorthand, because it just seems like something so cool to me. Well, I guess I still could learn…)

    beneath our surface is a foundation of words words words (and definitions of them consisting of more words). As Guildenstern would say, “they’re all we have to go on.”
