Cards are EXPENSIVE. Let’s make our own. We’ll make note cards from our old paintings, and even create original compositions. We’ll find pleasing compositions. And explore “running sketches” for use on our cards. You can choose to focus on holidays or everyday greeting cards.
- Your old paintings to cut up (watercolor, acrylic, sketches)
- Standard 5″x7″ mat with 3″x4.5″ or 3.25″x4.25″ openings
- Scissors and/or utility knife
- Heavy cardboard to cut on
- Plain note cards (I find mine at Michaels)
- Glue stick or other adhesive, I have been using acrylic medium
- Black fine point Sharpie
- Card stock of various colors
If you don’t have paintings that you can stand to chop up, bring scraps of watercolor paper and your watercolors, acrylics, markers, etc. to create original compositions. Cheaper paper is fine for this project. I will have some supplies available for purchase (cards and envelopes, card stock and sleeves to protect the finished products.)
We will use the mat as our viewfinder to find pleasing compositions to cut out and make our note cards.
