Instead HB and I worked in the yard doing some trimming and basic yard stuff. By evening I was not interested in starting the computer and spending a lot of time with it. And then yesterday was our monster shopping day so I was gone most of the day. We always do our grocery shopping on Wednesday or Thursday and we go to several stores. We just make a day of it.
The only thing I've made art-wise is a couple of over-sized postcards. I started with big advertising postcards that come in the mail. The ones I used were about 10.5" x 6". I just collaged a bunch of stuff on them and then doodled a bit. Here's the first one I did....
This is the front
and this is the back....
The upper right corner is blank
because that's where the postage will go.
I like using lots of different postage stamps
rather than a metered stamp. That way it
just adds to the art.
This is the second one.
It isn't finished yet....
it needs some doodles and stamping.
and this is the back with the same
upper corner for postage.
These large postcards cost more to send
but I think it's worth it....at least here in the States.
I like doing these big postcards. I always save the ones that come in the mail so I can alter them. Free art materials is a good thing! And I'm sure you've guessed by now that my work table is no longer neat and tidy! It looks almost as bad as when I started the clean up. I guess that's just the way it will always be as long as I'm creating anything.
