I find it hard to follow instructions!! But I really enjoyed working with the marker highlighter pens and taped 4 blank postcards together and tried to do the palm leaves, but something else happened. The class was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed your approach and manner. Thanks!

I then liked the idea of adding the black to the bright colours, and these miserable messages appeared to me! I'm posting three of the tamer messages – the fourth one might be considered too obscene!! I'm now working on the next four with different colour markers!

The result reminded me of those doodle boards (I think that's what they were called) that we had when I was a kid. I like making stuff that amuses me, and I like the contrast between the happy colours and playful design (inspired by Madhubani drawings) and then the cynical messages.
