These M monogram cards are for two lovely ladies who featured my projects on their blogs in December.

The Wing's Song :


They are inspired by old children's illustrated books that are full of time-past charm.

Simple Pleasures :


I started out with the teal acrylic alphas. And played around with the lines created by the outstretched arms of the girl and the windswept branch. I find nothing beats October Afternoon when it comes to re-creating 50s nostalgia.

If you are interested in the little new year's greeting on the inside of each card, it's posted on my blog.

Belladune - I started with the main image (kids). Then just start playing around with shapes and patterns. Sometimes it works nicely like these but believe me I've binned other projects.
