This month I’m announcing the start of summer. In England it doesn’t really seem like summer yet, so I’ll be drawing a lot of ice-creams for you guys.
And the best thing is – you get to color them yourselves!
Hello guys. I hope you’re doing fine. I always want to try new stuff. And I have tried many new stuff this period.
It’s the unknown that makes me curious, and I want to learn it all. One of the things that made me curious was painting with watercolors. Since I do handmade postcards, I tried to make some handmade watercolor postcards, and I threw so many paper, because it wasn’t good, and I kept some, not worth taking a picture of, and then I made this one, which I really adore. It seems watercolor postcards will be my new favourite stuff to make. 😀
I still have a lot more work to do and upgrade my skills, especially with watercolors, but I am determined to do it. What do you guys think about this?
Hello guys. Today I’m going to let you inside my world. You’ll get the opportunity to see how I make my drawing postcards, and maybe it will be an inspiration for you to make one too, and show it to me after. 😉
You are probably wondering what you’ll need, so here is the list of requirements:
– Piece of paper (yes, one piece of paper. Only one. A4 format.) – Pencil – Rubber – Glue – Whatever else you think you’ll need to express your creativity (coloring pencils, ribbons, stickers, markers and more.. ) – I used retractable knife for cutting the paper, but I sometimes just fold the paper and then rip it out.
And yes, that’s all you need to make a handmade postcard. Oh also, creativity. You’ll need that too, but I’m sure you have lots of creativity inside you, so it won’t be a problem.
Take one piece of paper. Yeah, this is the easiest step, you guessed it.
Fold the paper in two and cut it in half. That way, you’ll have two equal pieces.
Cut those pieces in half too, and you’ll get four equal pieces, in a postcard dimension.
Take one of the four pieces of paper, and that will be the platform you’ll be drawing on. In this case I drew a couple hugging each other. And I only used pencil.
We are gonna use the three pieces that remained too. Take the glue and glue them together. That way, you’ll make a stronger platform, so the postcard will be thicker and it won’t fold.
Here’s how that looks.
Make the postcard and send it to someone, and make them happy 😀 It is a lovely feeling, when you know someone has been thinking about you.
And don’t forget to send me a picture of what you did. I love seeing how I inspire people.
I made a new postcard today. It is this flower one, that is all ready to go out in the wild and make someone happy. I don’t usually draw flowers, and now I realize I maybe should have spent more time on drawing flowers, since this drawing really calmed me down while I drew it.
