Three... or six little postcards! Can't stop!

Three... or six little postcards! Can't stop! - student project

Thank you for this easy and very satisfying class, Lucie! I tried to do the same 3 as you did, and then I had paper left so I kept painting; the cherry blossoms in white, the foliage/berries switching around the colors, and the garden getting inspired from your example, and San's project too. :-) 

I had black scrapbook paper, somewhat thick but not as much as your cards. It works though, and I cut the big 30x28 cm into 6 small pieces of 10x14 cm. I used a post pen for the stems, and finally, after one year owning it, figuring out I had to store it upside down, or it wouldn't work. For the text I used a white charcoal pencil, which gives it a chalk-like look. I smudged one of them though, as it is like pencil, it comes off. Next series I will try the text with Posca Pen too. I like the handwritten look. 

First 3 cards: blossoms:

Foliage: text is a bit smudged in the first word:

Garden: the paint got too thick in the left flower, and I got a bit carried away with the dandelion! So much fun though!
