Project Description

8451dc4d

For your class project, let’s create a greeting card. Choose a word or a short phrase, and letter it the way you like. You can stand by the rules and keep it neat, or break the rules to create something more playful and experimental. You can also combine it with the watercolor splash background for more lively piece.

The worksheet is available under “Your Project” tab, “Resources” section, for you to refer to what we have just learned together :)
