Textured Text: Antique Junk-mail Abstracts

Junk Mail Abstract Antique1 MTr

As I worked on my second set of Junk-Mail Abstracts using different Textured Text pieces and effects, I noticed that some were taking on  Antique/Alternative Processing characteristics ( such as the Cyanotype) and had a faux Victorian quality to them. I started playing with this by adding & altering elements of the compositions.

I added frames to some of these, incorporating Junk-Mail elements and emphasizing the muted browns & lines of an Antique style.

    These are definitely developing along a line of their own. Great images.

      Working on a few more. Not satisfied with the results so far. Some potential for layer textures, but these thing cook at their own pace. 🙂
