A lot of orange!

This long weekend is turning into a lot of orange!

I checked Swap-bot and found a couple of new swaps for orange postcards and ATCs and then realized it was Monday and I wanted to post a photo for Mandarin Orange Monday and there it was, all over my work desk (to which I may also add a link on Wednesday for WOYWW)! *** Edited on Wednesday: I added it!

WOYWW 9-2-13  Monday

The cards are collaged bits of gelli printed deli paper onto yet more gelli printed card stock. I collaged it then cut into 2 postcards and an ATC for the swap. Now I will add more bits to them and maybe some doodles to get them ready to send out. You can see my still orange brayer and bits of gelli printed deli paper (I may start calling that GPDP for short!) in the background...

Makes me want to run to the store and buy some orange juice!!

  1. GPDP... I think you've coined a new acronym! Cause I sure get tired of typing that out all the time.

    Great collages - used to be that all the schlocky church bazaar stuff made by old ladies was orange and olive green, but I'm liking orange more as I age.

  2. LOL on the GPDP and I have been using a LOT of my gelli prints as textures in my digital fiddlings.
    Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my I Love You, Currie blog post today!! always so nice to "meet" and discover new artists!!

  3. Looks like you are having fun! Love all the warm colors!

  4. It is amazing how the tools of art can become such interesting art in itself....with a bit of help from the artist:)

  5. After putting on my sunglasses I was able to admire your orange craftiness :-)
