We recently launched a new series of note cards (or notelets) with Live Wires NZ Ltd. We revisited the collage technique that had been so popular with the NZ alphabet set but instead of making the collages in Photoshop using scanned painted textures and images Tanya Wolfkamp printed out selected images and cut them out along with painted and coloured paper, then arranged the collages until strong compositions emerged and scanned the finished artwork. In some cases contemporary geometrics were added, not sure why but they work!
The result was loads of interesting images to choose from and Live Wires decided to run with two card packs, instead of the one commissioned. Below is a design that didn’t quite make the grade. You can see Tanya re-used some of the motifs in the different compositions. Hoarding old books, calendars and vintage paper has finally paid off!
Each pack contains 8 x notecards with matching envelopes. There are two designs per pack and the card size is 95 x 145 mm.
