Art Cards 2011 – Week 11

Spring break was the theme for my art cards this past week! I had more fun practicing my illustrating skills and watercolor painting techniques, so I think this is becoming my new favorite style.

I enjoyed a quiet week at home, getting caught up on sewing projects, working on some homework, and spending time working in the yard. The grass is greening, more bulbs are peaking up, and the wildlife has returned to play. Things are definitely looking up in our yard, so I used that inspiration to illustrate my first card.

I was also dreaming of spring break trips from years past, so I illustrated a beach scene. How fun it would be to escape to that beach!

My favorite cards are the extra set I made for Michelle, since we agreed to swap cards on the first day of each new season. But I can’t show you those until she receives them. I love how they turned out, so I hope she likes them too! In fact, I duplicated them to have a matching set in my journal.

Be sure to stop by our Flickr group to see what Michelle and Sandra have been doing on their fun art cards.

  • Hello Terri! You have made again lovely cards! I’m happy you feel spring and had a great week! That beach card looks so familiar to me because I was looking so much my beach photos!
    I wish you wonderful week! xxx Teje

  • I’m dreaming! I’m dreaming! Especially if it would mean being on that beach 🙂 I love how the tree in the yard card becomes the frame and I love all of the little creatures in both cards (though I will say that the wording on your yard card is a little spooky… you will see why when you receive my card and then you will think it’s spooky too…)

    So pleased you’ve had a nice week off and I’m excited to be doing our first card swap of the year. Enjoy the remainder of your holiday xxx

  • Happy to hear you’ve had a relaxing week. I could step right into that beach scene..kind of like Mary Poppins!

  • *sigh* I would I could draw…

  • Oh the beach…it’s *almost* time for a beach run! We had one day at 80 this week! Glad spring break went well and the cards are gorgeous, as usual 🙂

  • …really like the style of both your illustrations and also the way you’ve framed them..like everyone a trip to that beach would be my dream
