I'm always on the lookout for neat words, or little pictures that might work on the cards. I found this little cat in an old magazine. It reminded me of our cat Fritz who passed away in December 2011, so I decided to dedicate this card to him.
(Cut outs, sharpies, staples)
This day I had an eye doctor's appointment so I used the little reminder post card I received to clip out some pics for the card! I was out of glue (I've went through FOUR gluesticks already!) so I used staples to attach them!
A few days back when I was painting in my art journal...I painted a few cards so on "busy hectic" days I could have a bit of a jumpstart! The blue on the card is paint...the rest is markers. I used four shades of pink. I wasn't very inspired so I just colored and defined shapes with the black sharpie. It actually turned out "ok."
With the cards..I have been trying to mix it up...themes, materials etc...so far I have used marker, paint, chalk, colored watercolor pencils, collage pics, gems, stamps, and desk drawer "junk". Some cards have drawn on ideas on my January list...
