City Scapes in artist trading cards

I started out with Bristol paper 7.5" long. It is easier for me to work on one long strip rather than individual card. I strategically built my city to fit the 2.5x3.5 inch card size. After I inked in the card and colored it with makers I cut the correct size cards.

In a "Marie" mood

 These are some artist trading cards I made inspired by Marie Antoinette.

Blue Altered Book #3

This spread has two rubber stamp images. The one on the right was stamped on tracing paper then turned over and I inked in the reverse side. Some of the paper elements were from a decorated envelope I received from a trade.

Blue Altered Book #2

This is the second spread in my altered book project. I am calling it the "Blue Book" because it is a blue book on the outside. Originally it came from a library and has the good sturdy outside cover. Not sure if I am going to do something on the outside or not.

In the fall I found a display of small packets of Crayola crayons arranged in a color wheel. I bought several in different colors and shades. I used the grays on these pages.  I love trees and always have at least one page of trees in my books.
