The design of this card started with an old letter and a photo I took of dried stems in my winter garden. Atop these collaged images, I digitally added green and blue circles to the composition to give it more color and movement. Suitable for birthday or any time there’s a reason to CELEBRATE!
Feeling it. I had another day off today-it’s pretty good working for the schools-and got so much done. I did mostly digital art on the computer and this is one I finished. It’s selling on my etsy site, fadedpaisleystudio, as a print and as part of a 4-card set of greeting cards. Hope you’ll take a look.
Every now and then I try my hand at making journals and mini jotters and this time I made a sketchbook for myself from a used hardcover library book. I watched some You Tube videos to learn how to do the coptic stitch. (The best was SeaLemonDIY. She has a very clear and precise video tutorial) I find that works better for me than trying to follow steps in a book. Need the visual. It was a little tricky at first, but I took my time and once I finished, I liked the way it turned out. I think I’ll make some more! These are some little jotters and journals I’ve been making too. I use the minis in my purse, my coat pockets, my car, so I can jot down a song I heard, or a quote I like, or to remind myself of things I have to do. I need that a lot!
