mixed media collage

dimensions - 8 x 20

dimensions of each card - 2.5 x 3.5

I have been spending much of my time making artist trading cards and over the weekend I decided one of the cards I had made would be fun to do on a larger scale - interesting to me how one thing leads to another.

The larger collage has a small round mirror and gold glitter in spots (same as the first ATC), both are mountainous landscapes; I also added some string to the larger work to outline the mountains (string was used in the second ATC). I decided to use one of my ink stamps for the tall grass pattern in the foreground instead of gold leaf (used in the third ATC). Using the ATC's as a quick study lead to a larger artwork and was a natural flow in my creative process.

  1. Robin, your larger version of the trading card is very nice.
