I am making progress. I have and am enjoying making cards. It was a long time coming. Over the years I bought stamps and things to do stamping but there is something about that.......I am not sure I enjoy it, to me it seems like faking. I like to draw, so stopped. Always intended to get back to it. I spent enough money on supplies heaven knows. Still, they will always be there and maybe some day I will get back to it. I collected lots of paper products, cards and envelopes and extras. Meanwhile I am now drawing my own pictures and I may find the stamps useful to do the inside with things like "Happy Birthday"
So I did another Butterfly it does not show well, the colours are vivid and the enhancements do not stand out.
I added the extras using the texture paints and glitter. This next one I showed before but was not happy with it. I added a border.
I saw a photo of an Elephant on Pinterest. This is my version of it.
This is my picture of Esther The Wonder Pig wearing her sunglasses........or at least some piggy.
I am getting some of my ideas from pictures I have done in my sketch books. I do see things on Pinterest that inspire me to do something. I don't copy but do my own version of the subject.
The cottage I will do in different seasons, it will look nice with snow.
I am not really sure what I can use this one for, not really the right subject matter for a card.
I really don't know what I will do with this one, a quick sketch to work on.
A few more I completed this evening.
I did this one again, actually it's different. I moved the bee and the flowers are different. Ah well, it's hard to keep coming up with ideas.
It all starts with a sketch.
Well that's it for now. I have quite a collection now. When I get to the end of this project I will see what progress was made and wonder if I will come up with some to sell. I doubt it but at least I won't need to buy any cards for awhile.
Sharing with make it pretty monday at the Dedicated House
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
