Hi everyone, I hope you are having a good day and will have a great Memorial Day. I would like to be able to go to Kentucky for Memorial Day and visit my parents and grandparents graves, put flowers on them and just drive around the place where I grew up. However, I won't be able to go, but that will be in my heart!
In my painting class, we painted greeting cards, using watercolors and then embellished them with ink, using a fine point Sharpee pen. You can see in the top photo how the card went from a loosely done wash of color(on the right) to a drawing in ink. Below is the final card. The class loved using the ink pen to clarify their drawings and bring out their subject matter. They all did a great job!
Here are some finished cards, with an embellished envelope, too. They did flowers in a pot by just painting loose circles. When dry, they went around the shapes with the pen, and as if by magic a beautiful card began to happen!
It is so much fun to just BE CREATIVE!!
Happy Memorial Day to you.
