For the firs time I have signed for this months challenge as I thought that the start of 2015 would be a good time to start.
The challenge is to design and make a postcard which features a word that means something for you during the year of 2015.
I have decided to pick the word
Due to various things over the past 4 years this is not a state/position/feeling that I always find myself with.
However, I have found this a little harder than I thought and I have ended up with two entries and I need to narrow it down to just one.
This postcard has been created using Aquacolour crayons and water. Plus cutouts and water colour pencils with fineliner pen. The word is added with a marker pen but I hit a lumpy section and the second "S" I think looks like a number 5? Blast! Does it notice too much? I suppose it does now that I have mentioned it.
I added blue mulberry paper to the top third and pastel to show up the water colour paper.
This is also on water colour paper with paints and highlighted with a black finer liner.
The word has been created using a stamp on to painted water colour paper and then attached to the surface of the postcard.
They are both completely different and both have an organic theme to them. I like being outside but not if it is too cold!
Brightly coloured flowers in gardens, flower shops etc always put a smile on my face then of they are scented even better. I love Dahlias, but so do the slugs where I live, but big displays of these flowers at National Trust venues are a must for my camera. As are roses and just about any kind of plant.
Sissinghurst Castle is a must to visit near Cranbrook in Kent UK.
So....... which one do you think?
I need to upload my chosen entry or flip a coin by the end of the week, so any opinions would be gratefully received.
I need to get in the swing of this a bit more I think, but I do like a theme or a goal to work to.
The current Le Challenge theme is DOTS. Still thinking about that one...................
