|I joined this postcard swap at the end of April. The 5 postcards have to be mailed out |
by the end of May... so I thought I would
fulfill two commitments ;) by painting portraits on them,
as that will count toward the 29 Face Challenge too!
For Frida here, I recycled a Christmas card, then painted over with
white acrylic, then painted her with gouache on top of that.
|Postcard 1 - Frida and her quote. |
For Postcard 2, illustrating the Tolstoy quote, I cut the cardboard for this postcard
from a box of ziti, its the perfect thickness! Gouache over white acrylic again, before I painted
the acrylic I glued a page from a book I had bought that was in need of recycling.
I like the stamp at the bottom, its the perfect color. The flowers were
cut from a Vera Bradley card I got in the mail.
|Postcard 2 - Tolstoy Quote.|
I have three more to go. The cards are already prepped with acrylic so half the work is done. Now the fun stuff can be done. Tomorrow is Friday and as always I'm sooo happy.
I think Thursdays make me happier than Friday because of the anticipation..
Have a great day and THANK YOU so much for all the wonderful birthday wishes I received from my bloggie friends!! You're all terrific and I enjoy you my time here with you!
