woyww - quick cards and blossoms


A birds eye view of my desk with the bits and pieces necessary for card making.  Since I started painting flowers, card making is fairly simple.  Scan and print the painting onto heavy cardstock and mount on a card.  Easy peasy.

First layer on the apple blossom.  I gave the original away and decided to paint another one just for me.  

Have a great woyww.

  7. I think I would have to have one for myself if I could paint like you do. What do you do with all of your originals? I was thinking what a lovely book you could make if you put them all together and bound them somehow. Then you could sit and look back at them all in a quiet moment.
    Beautiful as always.

  15. My word they look so professional. And Sandra, the amethyst, it's a stunner. I can totally see why you aren't keen, but your work on the facets and surfaces is amazing.

  22. Hi Sandra, sorry for such a late visit, only just catching up from last week! Wow those paintings are wonderful and what a great idea to print them for cards, the recipient could put them in a little frame and hang them! :o) Annie C #16
