In the Spirit of RED

Creating a handmade postcard as a RAK.

Creating a “sea of red” using Distress Paints in candid apple, barn door, and fired brick with a touch of Craftsmart metallic red. 
6 x 8 watercolor paper
Using torn strips of decorative tape as a layering technique around a quote from the Seize the Day desk calendar.

A linen stamped background, embossing, and glitter glue create texture.

Happy Mail!

What "happy mail" are you creating this month?  If you're not, think about creating one of these postcards the next time you art journal.  Use what you have out and send someone a little piece of your art while making their day.  

Creating these small pieces of art as a means of working on my goals to share my art and do more RAK's in 2017.
