More fun with 4-from-1

A new batch of postcards:













They started as 8"x12" collages with a central image and I added to them after they'd been cut into four pieces.


(forgot to take a picture of these collages before I started embellishing)


The original inspiration for this came from a swap hosted by the fabulous Steph Dodson.
I received one of the pieces of this awesome collage in the mail yesterday.
(thanks for the ongoing inspiration and challenges, Steph!)

  4. Wow, better and better! For some twisted reason my favorite is the teeth one - something about anatomical images I'm just a sucker for! Plus I LOVE the colors...

  7. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. This approach works so well. Love all the colours. I suppose you could always send one of the teeth ones to your dentist.

  12. I definitely need to do this. Much more attainable than a big 24" x 36" poster page for future postcards. Awesome work - everyone!

  14. These cards are so neat! Love the idea! I never would have thought of that. Each postcard is complete in itself! Awesome!

  15. Karen, I love this. What a great idea. They have their own unique flares. Well, not flares, because that would imply an emergency of the negative kind. I mean, flairs, as in, the kind of flair you'd get from a felt tip pen that comes in many colors.

    I probably need to practice commenting.
