Hello lovely readers!
It’s Memorial Day weekend, and that means a long weekend here in the United States. It kind of marks the beginning of summer, though ironically we’ve been having weather quite the contrary! In any case, this weekend will find me working long hours, not relaxing. That’s why I’m writing this blog post late at night 😀
I wanted to give you a glimpse of handmade art from my little studio. I don’t have a studio per-se, just a bunch of art and craft supplies in different drawers and boxes in my room, and my school desk, but I like to call it a studio. It makes me feel more important and creative, ha, ha!
I like to combine drawing and sketches with card-making, so I practically make most of the cards for every occasion in my family. Even in last-minute situations when we may have unexpected guests or we need a ‘thank you’ card, my dad may say “quick, make a card for so and so!” In fact, I don’t remember the last time I bought a card.
These cards are just a small sample I made over the course of several months for friends and family. I’ve been making a lot less than I used to do in the past just because as a student, I have less time to dedicate to creativity But I always try to squeeze in a bit of time for that whenever I can.
Some cards are exact replicas of examples I saw online, others are my own creation or a combo.
For another friend’s birthday
For a young friend’s birthday
Which card do you like best?
