My First Box Card

Hello Friends,

Have you seen those marvellous box cards on the Internet lately? I wasn't much interested in making one until I realized that they fold flat for mailing. Most of my cards need to go in the post.

My brother's birthday is in a few days and I wanted to send him something special. A Harley Davidson themed box card was just the thing for him. Riding his Harley is his favourite thing to do.

The images are from Free Vintage Digi Stamps

Oil Pastel Apples

Hello Friends,

A couple of weeks ago I received some artsy goodness in the mail, including a set of Royal oil pastels. I had a play with them, first drawing an apple from my imagination. It would have been better if I'd actually had an apple in front of me or even a picture of one. I was just excited to get started with this new-to-me medium and I only had a few minutes before I had to leave the house for the evening.


When I got home I decided to look up an oil pastel tutorial on YouTube. That's when I drew/painted the 2nd apple. Which one do you like best? My husband likes the first one, but I'm undecided. I like the stem on the first, but the range of strokes and colour in the 2nd one.

Thanks for dropping by.

Blessing hugs,
Teresa
