I didn’t get to work in my art journal today, but I did get to experiment with one of the techniques: spraying various colors through template shapes to create a background. This card is for my father-in-law. Let’s see a show of hands, how many of you knew there would be a bird involved? 🙂
March is a busy month for me, with lots of birthdays among our family and friends. I’m not inclined to make “quick” cards, and rarely are any two alike.
I bought a book (imagine that!) some time ago when conducting research on making and selling cards. The key to the author’s success involved cards that could be made quickly, in multiples of the same card design. I would find that terribly boring!
That’s when I decided that, for me, it’s not about making money. I do it to try new art mediums, and stretch those creative muscles to develop new skills–but the best part of all is focusing on the card recipient throughout the process. Memories are stirred, prayers are spoken, and I hope they are blessed when it arrives in their mailbox.
Thanks for stopping by!
