Paint-Chip Postcards


Paint-chip postcardI can’t remember when I discovered paint chips. They come in so many wonderful colors and sizes and best of all they are so stamp-able. I have often used them in altered books, for tags, tickets or other embellishments. Once I made one into a bookmark. Oh, yeah, and they are nice to have around if you are painting your house. Recently I found the perfect size multicolored paint chips to use for  postcards, and my imagination went wild. These Paint-Chip Postcards include gold doilies, gold embossed decorative papers, and a choice of lovely collage images in flowers, butterflies, birds and vintage ladies from Magenta. We also will be using my new favorite play-toy: washi masking tape. I hope you’ll join me  for Postcard Night, at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25, 2011, at Stampin’ From the Heart, 11720 Washington Place, L.A. (Call (310) 391-0466 for directions). Cost is $10. All materials supplied by Los Angeles-based paper artist and instructor Jessica Hollowell. Reminder: We start on time at 6:30 p.m. and go till 8 or so. You will get the makings for 2 cards, and this month you will be making a lot of the design decisions. Hope to see you there.

    • Paint chips are swatches of paint colors and can be found in hardware stores or paint stores. They are meant to be guides to painting the walls of your home.

  1. I am enjoying the postcards that I am collecting from you. However would it be possible to have 1 image other than an angel if not just let me know. Thanks again for your wonderful talent and I look forward to attending this class.

    • In this project you will have a choice of colors and images. I am sure you’ll find a couple that you like better than the one shown. Thanks for your kind comments.
