rolodex file card art

i have seen many rolodex file card holders full of such cool, artful cards that i wanted to play and make my own.i managed to find an unused rolodex at a rummage sale for $0.25! SCORE! i have slowly been working through my files.check out my previous posts if you missed them here and here and here and here. the file cards are a wonderful way to do "warm-ups" when you are getting started in your studio or if you are feeling stuck. the size is perfect and easy to work on.

for this one i layered prints off of my gelli plate a couple of times for the background; then added the ruler washi tape, montgomery ward sticker and a circle of painted book paper. the pink polka-dots and the pink circle was made with watercolor crayons.
