Dear Mom…

A friend’s mom was having a birthday and asked for postcards with cats to wish her a happy day.  It was easier for me to use postcards that were cut and ready for art.

I decided to combine collage using gelli-printed paper and Neocolors water-soluble crayons (since they happened to be next to me.)  Here are the ones I did for her mom:

They were so much fun to make that I decided to create several for my mother-in-law too!  She loves flowers! 🌷

I know I enjoy receiving cards in the mail so I think she will too.  I will make several in advance so I can mail one a week.

Who do you know that would love to receive a postcard in the mail with your art?

Cheers!  🙂

Circle Of Friends

Remember the paper circles that I recently posted?  If not, you can find it here.

Well, one of the reasons I was cutting out circles was to make these 3 minute postcards:

An assignment from Carla Sonheim recently in her year-long online class was to create a quick postcard with these 5 perimeters:

  1.  Use a round piece of collage
  2.  Add a drawing that interacts with your circle collage
  3.  Add a splash of watercolor paint
  4.  Add a word or two – I used rubber stamps
  5. Add the color, orange

And here are a few more postcards I did:

Some days it’s fun to give yourself perimeters to create art!  And postcards are great because you can send them to a friend and say, hello!  🙂

I hope you take time to play and create something fun for you today…

And maybe put a stamp on it and send it to a friend!!

Cheers!! 🙂
