Good morning you all. It's another cold and wild day here, good weather to stay at home! Tomorrow I have to be out nearly all day, so I will make the most of my *at home* time today. I stayed from Monday till yesterday afternoon with my friend Inge, she's not feeling so good just now, but we still had a good time chatting, eating, playing and drinking coffee as always. Oh, and not to forget the biscuits we always nibble!
Yesterday I spent some time curled up on my recliner, just reading and relaxing, and then I heard the call from the kitchen to get in there and do something, so I did. I made 3 vintage postcards, using scraps of photos, letters, pieces of old books and some die-cuts that were still flying around. I applied the pieces in layers. The first one has squares of an antique book as a base. I then applied a gel transfer which didn't really work, it just left a faint, ghostly layer, so I just put the next gel-transfer - my first-day-of-school photo - on top. Then I inked it all a little bit with vintage photo, antique linen and Victorian velvet. It now really looks like a very ancient photo, and I have called it *60 years ago*.
The second one has a base layer of images stamped with vintage photo ink, and then I have added various dry gel-transfers one on top of each other. If you look carefully, you will see lots of hidden things. I have called this one *Macabre dance*, I am sure you will be able to guess why.
The third one again has many layers placed over each other. I have used scraps from an old ledger, from letters, from an antique book, a piece cut out of a picture, and various print outs and photos applied as dry gel-transfers. Here there is also a lot to look at in the different layers, see what you can find. I have called this one *Faces*.
That was all for today. I had an early night yesterday, so did not get as much done as on some days.
Have a nice day you all, hope the sun is shining for you! Take care, and thanks for visiting!
