I was creative with something else today. A hot glue gun , some barks and wooden branches mounted on used candle stands. In the middle I placed a plastic container for the water and flowers. This way the flowers will stay fresh.
Enjoyed doing this. As always love to hear your comments.

Love your vases, Gita.  I'd try to set them up straight for you but am afraid I might glitch the system.

Be sure you have them flipped upright and saved in a photo program before posting them.  If they come straight from the camera phone at an angle, they will probably post that way.

Oh, Mea, this thread was a bit painstaking. I added and removed and added and removed.... :attacked: :eyesclosed: :attacked: :eyesclosed:

The flipping of the pictures on the Iphone does not seem to have an effekt on the uploading. So I had to flip them on my PC with "paint" software. Thanks for mentioning. :1hug:

Yes Nolan, I emboss the cards myself. Water colour paper can be embossed with such a good result.I use a “big shot sizzix machine”. I wonder why I did not do this earlier. This enhances creativity so much!

Thank you so much Dennis, Nolan Patricia!
Here’s another example of an Easter greeting card which I sent for 15 recipients (mainly colleagues and good friends).
Card making does consume some time. I don’t know if the recipients are aware that each card like this takes around 20 to 30 min to finish. 🤷🏻‍♀️
Will start to continue my pending painting projects soon.😀

Thank you so much Mea, Patricia, Mary-Lou!
Yes Nolan, I send self made cards to strengthen relationships, too. They do make the recipient very happy to see that a card was specially made for him or her.

Recently some of the recipients ( specially women) have shown interest in learning card making. I shall organise a card making class if there are enough of students. I can combine this with watercolour painting, too. This should be fun. 😀

Gita, start your classes even if there are a few at the beginning. It is better this way as it helps build up your with experience and confidence. You will then be more relaxed with bigger classes.  O0
Title: Re: Album: Creativity something different
Post by: Gita on May 07, 2019, 09:36:30 AM
Thank you for the Feedback Val, Nolan, Dennis.
Val...  :2funny: :2funny:
Nolan, offering online classes is surely a good idea. People might need to buy the materials and hardware which would be a limitation to start.
Dennis, I shall start small. I would be more comfortable with that I think.  :1hug:

Nolan, the July challenge has made me curious how to make paper flowers and other art work with paper.I have to thank you for indirectly awakening this interest in me.  I’ve watched some teaching videos now and wish to do some paper flowers.  I have ordered suitable paper for doing this. Until then the one below is another card made out of my trial in the WC challenge with stuff I had.

This is great Gita! I remember making paper flowers years ago. Nothing as fancy as this mind you. Just poppies and roses, we´d put them on sticks. Yours is beautiful and fanciful.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:

Oh yes Nolan! Fantastic things can be made with the proper paper and technique. I should have seen some teaching videos before taking part in the mixed media July challenge.🤔.  I would have chosen Crepe paper, which is more suitable.
Thanks Val! Actually, I have not done paper flowers at all. It’s so fascinating! This is a another whole creative world!

If you want to see paper flowers taken to a whole new level then check out THESE  (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCM9qj7I0arx-pzDBKcotVeA/videos)videos. I stumbled upon them the other day and thought to myself that you could make a lot of money doing them for weddings

Due to isolation and quarantine regulations all of us have more time to be creative, I suppose.
I did some Easter cards to cheer up friends who are staying at home. This is an attempt to embrace at times when it is to be avoided. The postal services are functioning still. I used old WC paintings for stencil work. The card has come out somewhat „girlish“. 😃. This time I used also the Gelly prints for the backgrounds.

With this card a big hug also to all Paintbasket friends and the masters!!
