More Layers than You'll Ever Need...But You Know You Want Them!

I have actually been making more art over the past few months than prior to past iHanna International DIY Postcard Swaps, and sharing it on Instagram. I've also been taking art journaling classes (online and in person), 
so I am not as desperate to make cards this time.  

But I AM very inspired to make them!  

I recently finished my art journal spread for the wonderful online class "Hallowed Ground" by my favorite teacher, Roxanne Coble, bybun.  In every class she teaches, I learn several techniques that I love and continue to put to use in my art!  Her style and lessons have inspired the last few batches of cards I've made for Hanna's swap.  
(I posted about the process of making these cards here and here.)  
I highly recommend her online classes...she's an amazing teacher, the videos are beautiful, and they are rich in content and instruction.

 There are so many layers to the process here, and I don't want to give anything away.  But the cards did start with a set of pens my husband gave me for Valentine's Day,
(Finally! after 20 years he learns I'm addicted to office/art supplies!!!),
 and an inspiration to doodle some mandalas.

I'm including the ten postcards I am sending out today!  I always make extras, and you can see all 18 of the cards I made on my flickr account here

Thanks for stopping by!  
I always love to see a comment from you...then I know you were here!

  1. Fab cards? Did you draw the doodles or stamp them?

    1. Thanks, Stephanie! I drew everything. The mandalas started in pencil and I went over them with the pens. The white doodles on top are white gouache with a size 0 brush. XOXO
