The Art Of Carl Larsson In A Postcard

postcard
Brita in the drawing room – painted by Carl Larsson

When the love for receiving postcard will combine with the love of art, this is what happens.

It makes my day!

For those that are not aware, Carl Larsson was a Swedish painter, mostly painting using oils, watercolors, and frescoes. He considered his finest work to be Midvinterblot (Midwinter Sacrifice), a large painting now displayed inside the Swedish National Museum of Fine Arts.

The postcard that I have received is called Brita in the Drawing Room.

I really love it and this that it is ahead of its time.

What do you think? Do you like it?

WWE handmade postcard for you

image

Hello guys.

I wanted to show you one of the handmade cards I’ve done recently. It’s the WWE logo, because one of the people I did a swap with requested it from me.

I decided to make a lot of handmade postcards like this one, and send them all to my patrons. (If you want to become my patron, you can do this here) So, don’t wait and reserve yourself a WWE card 😀

What do you think about this? Do you like the postcard?

I love you this much!

This T-Rex humor is adorable, Leah! The way you’ve drawn them is so cute!

It’s so funny how their hands are really small, and it makes it even funnier when I imagine them hugging. That would be such an awkward hug :3

Thank you so much!

Neat & Keen – The Great Crane Giveaway

I received something very unusual. It was a brown envelope and when I opened it a brochure came out of it and The Great Crane Postcard. I honestly don’t remember how I applied for this, or how it came to me, but I am so glad it did!

The 5 x 7 inch origami crane is a 3-color silkscreen print signed, numbered, and printed by hand at Neat & Keen Studios by John Everett Morton in DeKalb, IL. While 1000 is quite a bit for a limited edition print, it relates to the Japanese tradition of folding 1000 origami cranes in return for good luck or one wish granted.

The Great Crane postcard

She never turned back…

image

She was the type of girl that believed to everyone. She never saw the evil of people. She trusted them regardlessly. Always. And yes, she was hurt. Many, many times…

She was a girl. Knew so little about life and gave her best to satisfy the people around her. The awful thing was, nobody really cared. She gave everything she had, and no one ever said thanks.

Disappointed of life, and the evil people, she decided to change. She became this cold person on the inside, not letting anyone in. Never. Not a chance. She walk straight forward and she never turned back. That was her shield, of not being hurt. It was the easiest way!

Then someone came and fought through all the shields of protection she had. He fought for her attention and fought for her love, while showing her his! He showed her he appreciates everything she does, and for the first time, she felt worthy. He showed her the way, but the way of forward.

She never turned back, but she had a reason to move forward, because he was there, waiting for her!

If you never try, you’ll never know

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?

How to make a postcard from a single piece of paper. DIY

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.

STEP ONE:

Take one piece of paper. Yeah, this is the easiest step, you guessed it.

image

Fold the paper in two and cut it in half. That way, you’ll have two equal pieces.

image

Cut those pieces in half too, and you’ll get four equal pieces, in a postcard dimension.

image

STEP TWO:

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.

image

STEP THREE:

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.

image

Here’s how that looks.

image

STEP FOUR:

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 love you guys,
Innah

The sun of Vergina – Macedonia

image

The sun of Vergina, an old symbol of Macedonia.

I love this picture, and it is one of the best suns of Vergina that I have ever drawn. My sister is colouring it yellow at the moment, and maybe she’ll paint the background red too, since those are Macedonia’s national colours (red and yellow).

I hope you like it, and I hope you enjoy it.
