Grunge Magazine Heart Postcards


I made these postcards for a swap on my new swap group ‘Mixed Media Misfits’ :

For the swap we have to use magazine papers to create post card art, I was tempted to do the magazine scrunchie backgrounds for this but in the end decided to go for this grungy option instead.

The postcards are created using various layers of printed tissue paper and netting taken from bags of oranges which I glued down onto the card and added  layers of spray inks and paints till I liked how it looked.

The heart cut out centrepiece was created from magazine papers which I concertina folded into small squares and then folded it in half again so I could cut out a half heart shape using scissors to reveal a complete  full heart.

Highlights where then added using black and gold markers until I liked how it looked, I added a bit of vajazzle 🙂 style bling using faux rhinestone gems to make a border on the right hand side.
