Printing on vintage French text...





Today I decided to try printing on vintage French text.  The top one is of a drawing I did and after printing it I used some pastel and graphite to embelish a bit.  The next two are of a mixed media painting I did on wood years ago, I just adjusted the color scheme on the third photo.  The last one is of a vintage photo I bought at an antique store.  I like the outcome and they are much better to see in person!

Queen Alice meets March Hare...



New 1909, vintage envelope art.  Queen Alice meets March Hare.  Graphite, colored pencil, pastel, DS gold gesso.  The envelope opened is approx.  5 3/4" x 6 3/4" I like opening the envelopes as the give me more drawing room.  I also like seeing the folds and aged areas, also the tears.  Obviously the opener of this envelope tore the side open to retrieve the letter.  Wish I knew what was written in that letter!

I was inspired by photo posted on Pinterest of Alice Liddell, it was pinned by Kay High.

Today's fun, Queen Alice...


Drawing and painting on an old 1938 used envelope.  The Envelope was tiny so I cut it open and used up the space.  The V shaped marks are from the glue used in the old envelope, I guess it was not archival glue, anyway I think I won't worry about it, it was too much fun painting over it!

The moment waits for you....
