It is a little larger than the typical postcard and it will make a great wall art piece. Isn’t fun!
I was a little stalled with how to proceed with my postcard. Nothing “summery” seemed to jell in my mind. I just started playing.
I stripped piece 1 1/2 inch strips, placing colors deliberately. Orange for the earth, green for the grass, blue for the sky and yellow for the sun. (This is actually a picture of the first one I started and there are changes in the second one).
I really liked the look but I felt it was missing something. I debated about adding stitching, embroidery, buttons or ribbons. I would get out my supplies, start playing and decide no.
It wasn’t until the day before I was to sent it that I realized it needed words. While I hate waiting until the last-minute I have discovered if I am patient for things to come together vs. forcing it, I am much happier with the results.
I have to admit this is a picture of the postcard that Nonnie shared on Twitter. I forgot to take one!
I checked both my phones (personal and work) and my camera. No picture. (Thank you Nonnie for sharing)
The writing it hard to read, but they are, Summer Fun, Joy, Love, Happiness, Laughter, Warmth and Peace. My hopes for Nonnie’s summer.
What are your hopes for the summer?
Happy first day of summer on the Journey, Jackie
