I've been watching all the beautiful cards you guys are making. I'm hoping you can give me some advice on how to get started
and maybe some general directions. I also hope I haven't posted this request in the wrong place and that no one thinks I'm dumb for asking.
I'd really like to get into this stuff. Please help, craftsters!! Thanks in advance for being so understanding of my ignorance.
Thanks to all the wonderful replies and encouragements, I've finished my first three cards! And without further ado:
This is "Sun on the Water" - Acrylic paints
This is "Sun on the Water II" - lol It's basically the same view with a different medium. It's fabrics, foam, and layers.
This one is "Retribution" and I apologize in advance if it offends anyone. I painted the background first (obviously) and it looked like fire. So I thought, who should be IN the fire? And, well, you see the results. The text reads "Gone but not Forgiven" in case it's blurry.
Edited to add:
"Who's the cat?" Newspaper, ink, and cardstock. I drew Garfield myself...be gentle, I'm not a great draw-er.
Anyway, the text says "Garfield is better (and bigger too)"
If anyone is interested in swapping for one of these in my *very first* ATC swap EVER, just pm me. Thanks for looking and being newbie-tolerant. Any comments/criticisms/advice/questions welcome!!
