Hello, I’ve been missing for a while. I have missed writing on my blog this week but I really like to make sure I have enough time to sit and write something coherent rather than a load of garbled nonsense. The end of a school year is always busy but it always takes me aback about how much more there is to do – fairs, concerts, dressing up day and so on. It is also the last day for my daughter in her lovely cosy Infant school. She has to move to a bigger but sill lovely Junior school in September. When did my little girl get so grown up?!
I decided this year that instead of making 5 different ‘thank you’ cards I would paint one image and then test my scanning skills and print it out to make into thank you cards. It also gave me a chance to work at my drawing and painting.
Those on my Facebook page will have already seen this sneaky peak that I posted of the original watercolour piece. I also added a little pencil at the end to add detail and definition to some areas.
Once scanned and printed this is the result. I added some sequins, glitter and jewels and, in this case a handwritten ‘thank you’ and on the ones for the teachers I printed personalised thank you’s.
Just a little close up of some of the detail. I hope this shows it well enough – my phone is usually so good at taking photos but seems to be behaving really stroppy at the moment and is refusing to co-operate!
Hope you have all had a good week 🙂
