this week, i decided to make my mantra cards the same size as those in professional affirmation decks. i used my canson pad of mixed media paper for the first time. it is designed specifically for acrylics or gouache and I LOVE IT! it has a bit of textural pattern which you can probably notice on the painted card above but i like that look too. i was quite happy with how this card turned out as it was painted completely from imagination with no sketching beforehand.
today's card affirms that the power of the mind is an amazing thing and anything is possible if we put our minds into the right gear.
the text appears a little distorted because the card curled slightly, however, it will flatten out just fine once i have painted the back and set it flat between books.
the 'lakeview jasmine' shrubs are blooming and, smell OH SO NICE! a pity you can't 'scratch and sniff' your monitor screen to fully appreciate their beauty....but then, if you suffer from hayfever, it's probably just as well you can't.
