Art-4-Art, Lyons Regional Library, November 18, 2017

Artist: Damaris
Series: 11 cards, each of which is an original
Media: Watercolors on Canson 140 lb., black card stock, Glue Dots, Uni-ball Signa, broad, white ink, Avery ID labels, 2" by 2 5/8".

Process: I used some old experimental water colors (using red and blue and the white of the water color paper, outlined in black). The originals were the wrong size for ATC’s and I've forgotten which brand of water color I used. 

I glued each watercolor (using glue dots) on black card stock cut to the correct size.

Then I wrote a Pull Quote on a thin strip of black card stock, using a Uni-ball Signa broad white pen and wrapped the quote under the space left by the raised glue dots around each watercolor:

The Pull Quote is from Ryan Holiday’s interview with Mike Duncan, author of “The Storm before the Storm: The Beginning of the End of the Roman Republic.”

I put the trading information on the back of each card using Avery ID Labels printed out using Publisher [typeface Chiller].

Here are the cards without the Pull Quotes:
