Snail Mail

Snail Mail

I always try to include something in my Operation Write Home package for a hero to send home to his child. I thought this one might work for a boy or girl. The snail is a digital stamp – I’m just learning how to use them, and for images I’m going to color, I can see how helpful they can be, since you can re-size them to suit your project. I’m still technologically challenged for links (I can’t even seem to get an OWH “badge” for this blog) but I’m hoping to learn.

So excited to be starting the Creative Ladder class taught by Sandy Allnock, “Chiaroscuro.” I’m hoping to learn more about how to create 3-D images by using light and shade. It’ll be fun to look for how light plays off objects in daily life, and to try and recreate some of those effects on paper. Hoping my cards will become mini works of art as I practice and improve.
