christmas cards. i'm not overly passionate about the whole christmas thing. but i do like to get involved in way that doesn't buy into the traditional imagry. i want to let people know i wish them a great holidays for example but i don't want to post a whole heap of cards with irrelavent images of snowmen and fir trees - particularly when its 42 degrees outside.
so here are my christmas cards. at first i was thinking about my photos and doing something cool with them... basically destroying them and stitching them down to pre-made card stock. i'd fold them and scrunch them and rub them on the carpet.
then i spied an old painting of mine that i wasn't all that happy with...
i ripped the canvas off the frame. and tore it into strips about 3 or 4 inches wide. these i then ripped into smaller parts - i used these for the front parts of the cards and all the smaller bits i stitched onto manilla gift tags from the local newsagent. they look great. i now have matching cards and tags. i plan to wrap the presents in brown paper. very simple. very stylish.
