First I decided to try a journal page so I took the first page and sewed it right into my paper bag journal. Then I added an image and paint and so forth and journaled all about wanting it to be spring.
So that had been fun, then I decided I would cut the paper up and make postcards. Using a postcard as a template, I traced on the back and cut them out. Then I sewed a piece of cardstock to the back for mailing.
Then I did another one and added this bird by gluing first and then sewing it down, before doing the backing.
Then I added some collage elements to the next one.
Oh this was starting to get addicting and so much fun.
Now I had only one sheet of paper left. I really find red hard to work with. I should do it more often and maybe I will get over that color hump.
and here is the last one. Gee now I need to make more paper.
after doing all these I thought I may as well sign up for iHanna's postcard swap. I only need to make 4 more and that will be a cinch. You can sign up here.
The next time you are feeling down, try doing some Art, its might be just the thing you need to do to get back to feeling great again.
