postcard serendipity & a collage gift to you!
following on the theme of serendipity from last newsletter...
maybe I should just call this newsletter everything is serendipitous? or perhaps I should just keep that for the next collage workshop title…….
if you read my last newsletter, you’ll know why it’s exciting to share how serendipitous it was to receive TWO postcards from friends this week, both of which matched colours in the painting I’m finishing! my visual heart swoons! There is little I love more in the world than receiving mail, and having it match random other colour stories in my life!
(a love-filled shout out to Addy for the gorgeous Toulouse-Lautrec card from Paris, and to Joce for the vintage ephemera card/gift that keeps on giving)
serendipity aside, today I come with a couple updates, one, a gift, second, a question.
first - I’ve been offering digital collage packs on my now-paused-patreon and decided I wanted to offer them to newsletter followers too! You can use them digitally or print them out - or both! The collage-world is your oyster. If you make something with these packs, I would LOVE to see it!
access the .psd and .jpg files HERE!
How to use:
1) Digitally: Download the .psd file to find all the cut-out, background-free collage snippets and play with them in photoshop! Recommended: open a new document and copy and paste your chosen elements into the blank "canvas" of the new doc! Play around in any way you know how to/want to in photoshop and see what you come up with!
2) Analog: Download the .jpg file and print it out! Cut and paste as you normally would with collaging! PLEASE please share your finished collages with me - I would be so. jazzed. to see the different configurations you all take! Heck, maybe I'll try one myself just to compare ;)
second, I am hoping to finally host another online collage workshop in late July! so my question to you is - what works better for you? a week night? a weekend? an afternoon? an evening? (keep in mind my timing is EST!) Share in the comments what works best for you if you want to attend, and stay tuned for a set date in the near future!
don’t forget - my online shop is open with prints of my All My Strangers characters available!
with warmth, katia
