‘N’ is for Nature

Mixed Media Monday – challenge = Nature – I have a head cold coming, but then I’m not poorly very often, so I suppose it’s par for the course this week! I have a couple of birthday cards to make and I haven’t made cards for quite a long time, so here’s my offering. I hope the recipient likes it! Lovely stamped image is from Crafty Individuals – perfect for this theme!

I was reading my pal Barbara’s thoughts the other day and she emphasised cutting and drawing regularly – it’s something I don’t do often enough. I’m not good at cutting out images but I did practise this evening and cut round the birdy carefully with my swivel-head craft knife because I wanted the lovely handmade paper to show behind him, without losing the definition of ‘nature’. See, I do take heed Barbara!!

Later I shall do some drawing… abstract, like the ‘eye’ I did in pastels a while ago. Promise! 😉

  8. He’s beautiful, Rosie! What a gorgeous card! Did you have fun cutting him out? Or was it a chore? I used to hate cutting, but when I realized how much it improved my drawing and vice/versa, I really began to pay attention to it. Now I can’t get enough of cutting things out! Hope you feel better fast and don’t get any worse!! Take care of yourself!! XOXO
