About this Blog

Doing an illustration for my other blog, I had a very frustrating experience with new quality drawing paper which got me thinking and indeed resulted in a flood of ideas, what can be done with the 99 sheets of paper that are still left from the block. So I decided to install a whole new blog to show you the results. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I like to create the projects.

The sheets of paper I am working with are size A4 (21 x 29.7 mm), 185 g/m².

Easter Postcards (3)

In this postcard project I covered the egg in small flowers.

Flowery Easter Postcard

Material: 1 sheet of white paper
                1 sheet of pink paper
                newspaper and magazine cutouts in all shades of pink, purple, red, orange
                oil pastels in pale pink
                spray fixative
                thread in several shades of pink

  • Print the template.
  • Cover the egg in oil pastels and mark vertical lines with a needle, beginning in the center and drawing parallels every 1.5 cm.
  • Cut out flowers in shades and patterns of pink with a flower hole punch.
  • Fix the flower cut-outs with tiny dots of glue along the vertical lines.
  • Sew along these lines in different colours. Knot the dangling threads thoroughly on the back.
  • Spread spray glue onto the pink paper and press onto the back of the postcard.
  • Fold the postcard carefully with a bone folder along the middle.
Making this postcard was so much fun, that I produced some more in every colour of the rainbow. To top the look, I added an envelope in the same colour as the lining of the respective card.
