Wednesday Update: Credit Card Cards

So last night my mom and I were playing around in her craft room—and this is a heck of a craft room, I might add…after shivering away in my bicycle shed, it’s a total luxury to work in a room with actual heat.
One of the techniques I loved from the Mixed Media Circus workshop in Hamburg was using the edge of an old credit card or hotel key card to create texture and pattern. You just dip the edge of the card in acrylic paint, then tap it down onto your paper. I was leafing through a photography book my mom had on her side table when I noticed the photos were kind of “framed” with these distressed edges, giving them a pretty, rustic look. So out came the plastic card, and we experimented with framing card focals. Take a look—
More to come later…we finished up our evening with leftover cake and cups of tea!
