5-3-16 ~ Flash Card Art

A while ago I saw some cards on You Tube that had been turned into mixed media artwork. Well, I didn't have any playing cards, but I did have some old flash cards left over from my teaching days so decided to use them...free. So far I have done 10, and here are some of them. They are really fun to make.

 Dream ~ Laugh ~ Believe

 Bluebirds, Sunshine, and Flowers

 Always Believe in You

 Follow Your Dreams
I Am Queen

 My Crazy Quilt

Walking in the Land of the Fowers
(If you look closely, I am walking down at the bottom in the midddle.)

 A Woman's Work Is Never Done ~ Just Persevere

I used a little bit of everything but the kitchen sink on these:
torn and cut paper 
Tim Holtz stenciling
Ranger texture paste
TIm Holtz distress inks
pen and ink
Modge Podge


  1. Hi Genie, so happy to see you again! I've just spent a very happy time looking back through your posts I've missed.. Gosh I love your art, it's so fabulously colourful and always positive. I love it! I've used my napkins many times when I've had people over for dinner, they always wash up like new :)

  2. Hi Genie,
    Now I have discovered a second blog until it's just great, what beautiful work.
    I'll see you again.
    Greetings Sadie

  3. Oh, wow! Have you ever been busy! I sure love these...could not pick a favorite if I had to.
