Humboldt Park (Vintage Postcard Series)

The Vintage Postcard Series features historic Milwaukee County Parks. As a vintage postcard collector, I was inspired by creating a new meets old look with a little unique twist including including Tree Limbs in each corner. Each sale I make on these, I will donate 25% of proceeds to Milwaukee County Parks. Milwaukee's Parks are very special to me and I feel very lucky that our city was forward thinking so long ago to set aside land for everyone to enjoy. 

 

This image features Humboldt Park lagoon in the autumn. A beautiful boat house once stood on the island of this lagoon, where visitors would paddle boat on the lagoon. If you look hard enough, you can see the stones where the bridge used to take you over to the boat house. 

 

Humboldt Park opened in 1891, and was one of six original parks created by the Milwaukee Parks Commission. Humboldt Park is situated in Milwaukee's Bay View and hosts many musical outdoor concerts at the Bandshell in the Summer. 

 

Description of Process: 

This collage consists of different photographs I’ve taken, digitally collaged, and finally printed in reverse onto laser jet printing paper. I then brush transfer medium onto the image and glue face down onto pine wood. Once the transfer is dry, I get the surface wet and begin rubbing the paper away. After several sessions, the ink from the printout is left behind on the wood. Each piece is hand sanded, small amount of stain applied to border and side. Finally sealed with UV protection and a matte finish. These collages sometimes show a quirkiness and make for a unique piece of art to enhance your wall!
