Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

altered postcard!

ohhh! how fun this was. i have never done this before, and was not sure if i would ever do another. this was done for an exchange with my yahoo group. once i got started i knew i would be hooked.

i photo copied the post card.....somethings i have a hard time arting on. by copying the postcards i was able to pick out my favorite front and back to make 1 post card.

i used the gel medium to transfer the flowers on the right side of the top, and the entire side, below.

i have used the gel transfer technique before and became frustrated because you can never get a perfect transfer........one of my many hang-ups that i am learning to get over!

i made an extra for a one on one trade with someone maybe, or ebay...... Posted by Picasa
