So far so good..............

Well I've done it - finished my art postcards ready to send out. I had so much fun creating these - they  allowed lots of freedom to try out different techniques and use different materials.

To support the sustainability theme, I used old Christmas Cards for my postcards and cut them down to size.

Here is a bit of a step by step process I used.

Applied a coat of Gesso

I drew one of these lovely ladies, then photocopied her onto water colour paper, so I had a few to use on different cards

I used watercolour pencils to add a bit of life

I did get into a bit of a mess - but that's part of the fun!

My finished cards - can't show them to you all as yet - it would spoil the surprise for those receiving them - but I will in a future post.

OK - so now I am off for a run - really, I am!
