Since I have friends that celebrate the holidays but not necessarily Christmas, I made these greeting cards without religious motives using recycled materials that I have on hand.
This project was lots of fun and very relaxing. I took a brown paper bag and wrote down all my emotions with a black marker. Then I painted the bag with gesso. Once it dried, I painted it with red and blue acrylics. After that I used stencils imprinted with words. Then I took metal tape, wrote more emotions down with an old pen, painted the surface with black, blotted it with a paper towel and cut the vase. After that I cut flowers from a newspaper and pasted them on. Lastly , I used my sewing machine to accentuate the design.
