(The brief for CJT8 is here, and what I sent to Rachael is here)

Here is what Rachael sent to me: First a little book about the process. I re-lived her thoughts and experiences with every flip of the page.

They are cards. Inside each one was a message about our project and what it means to her. I love the messages and the prints too. Getting each printed card out of it’s envelope was like following the print-making journey. Fabulous presentation!

 

Creative Joyful Thing No.8

 

*Make a pattern inspired by nature*

It could be repetitive and orderly or a random cluster of forms. If very abstract, please state/show your inspiration!

  • You could use printing of some kind to make the repeat images, or not.

Enjoy!

I have recently made two cards: one for my friend’s birthday and one for her baby boy who is about to turn 6 months old.

Card for Jo:

It’s made from a cut-up art magazine.

Here is the card for Edward, her baby:

This one is acrylic paint – bold colours to catch his attention i hope!
