In response to popular demand, here are all the cards that I've made so far for my Thousand Cards Project, along with more details than anyone probably wanted to know:
The majority are photograph cards, which I do on days when I'm too busy to attempt something more complicated (and since all the photos are originals I've personally snapped, I feel they do represent part of my artistic ability.)
These two were made with a couple of toys my daughter outgrew; they're two tiny stuffed animals dressed as a bride and groom. I couldn't let her throw them away and have been saving them for a couple of years. That they are a cat and a skunk must have been some designer at the manufacturer getting a bit cheeky. The ball and chain each is cuffed to was totally my idea, though.
I'm really proud of this card, the first in a series of ten poetry cards I'm making. The front was cut from last year's calendar, which I'm recycling, and sewn to a piece of antique yakuta cloth left over from a quilt. The blanket stitch around the edges was hand-done. The fragment of poetry is the first two lines of my favorite poem (somewhere I have never travelled by e.e. cummings) and I plan to make cards for the rest of the poem and then place them in order in a quilted holder, which will create a new way to read the poem. I've been very leery of trying mixed media, and as a first attempt I felt this was a real leap for me.
