Lately, I've been obsessed with this idea. Making a "book" out of Rolodex cards. I stumbled on Robyn McClendon's YouTube channel where she demos how she made her "book" and I have found the process so satisfying. Gelli printing has always been a favorite of mine but collage has not. Working on this tiny scale (2-1/4 x 4) has enable me to experiment with a lot of ideas quickly. Making art takes a lot of practice and now, I've found a way to hone my skills and have fun in the process.
I'm also making cards that re-use my existing art but also including commercials products like Washi tape, stencils and stamps. And, I've added to my paper collection a lot of transparent materials and love working with these as well.
I bought my "Roladex Tray" on eBay since I couldn't find any on Amazon or at the Office Supply stores. Perhaps it's been discontinued. I bought the cards but returned them since they were so flimsy. I find the old cards are better.
If you ned some inspiration, just subscribe to her channel. You'll have a lot of fun, I promise.
