Cardmaking Inspriation


   

Simple yet extremely Artful cards.

Bold and colorful cardstock adds to the beauty of the compositions.  Layers and stamped images take us on a journey in our mind.


Ascemic writing is not new...
Asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing. The word asemic means "having no specific semantic content", or "without the smallest unit of meaning". With the non-specificity of asemic writing there comes a vacuum of meaning, which is left for the reader to fill in and interpret.   The following is an example of Emily Dickinson Asemic writing.

Textured cardstock adds interest to the cards.  Reusing the stamp with existing ink allows for varied colors and transparency.


Mona is always good for a smile!   This was multiple layers of the same stamp with torn pieces for more visual interest.


Alcohol Ink blotted on gloss stock creates the background for the stamped Tower of Pisa, Ascemic writing stamp is layered onto to base paper.


Truth be told!  The background is alcohol inks again, botted on gloss stock, then layered and stamped.  The fold is offset which creates more interest.

All of the above were created by Carolyn Addie, a favorite Arizona Artist and friend.  Thanks Carolyn!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

Get on Over!
