First class l am talking about, is an amazing course created by Artist Traci Bunkers and the course is called, "Postcards on the Edge". You have to see her site, ( http://tracibunkers.ning.com ) she is an artist, makes her own stamps and sells, dyes her own wool and yarns, takes photographs, makes fantastic journal pages and so much more......just go and see!
the two images below are the front..which is where the address label will go. The next image is the front side. I have done some things different from the lesson ideas for th=is postcard. I made the mistake(?) of making the first layer too interesting and so dedided not to paint over it asnd then collage again! I decided to add some more bits and pieces and then l finally used wax on the card.
I have started quite a few cards and they are all at different stages. The first two cards are at the first stage and then l will paint them and then decide where to go from there.
The next image has been painted and l have left free a b/w newspaper image of an old man. The next stage will be quite a bit of added text l think.
I also am involved in a International Book round robin and a tag book swap too. As they haven't started properly yet..don't want to show you them, as it would spoil the surprise for the others. so each month when l receive the others work, l will show mine!
I have also been invoved in a ATC swop and my chosen word was TRUST and we had to make 3 of them. These are the first ones l have ever created and l really enjoyed making them.
The course l am just about to start, is how to make my own journals by an artist called Julie Prichard and her site is
The course l am going to be doing, is called Art Journaling Super Nova: Pt.1 and Pt.2 and l am so excited! Just like a little kid at the age of 57!Ha.
Anyway..more later! enjoy your Art and Crafting...Happy Bank Holiday if you are in UK!xx
