On December 18th, Lisa posted a note to the gluebooks group at Yahoo! reading: "OK, sign ups are now open for our January 2005 glued trading card swap. Make 3 glued trading cards, 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches. Send them to the person whose address is below yours in the database. Mail your cards by January 31st." Here is what I came up with.
This first set goes to Barbara in Virginia. I had brought back a travel magazine from my recent trip to Phoenix and had noticed that a couple of the panoramic photos might look cool spread across 3 cards. I patch-worked the top using some abstract paintings featured in the same magazine.
This second set of cards were made with backgrounds torn from the free maps that Hertz gave me on a trip last year to upstate New York. I added some appropriate tourist-y photos and comments, then mailed these to Sarah in The Netherlands.
