Greeley's Demo On How To Make a Postcard

Greeley is my youngest grand daughter and she also made a special postcard for a new friend in Belgium. She decided on a flamingo....after all they are a famous Florida bird. First she had to paint her fabric using watercolor crayons and stamps. Then she drew her flamingo and painted it and then outlined it in black. A job well done....

.....but now Greeley had to do the back. A few stamps, a little paint and a few stickers and the back looks as good as the front.
Then we need to do the sewing. Greeley does the "driving" and her Grammy does the "petal." The results ..... a beautiful back and a beautiful front..... a postcard to be proud of! Now it is ready to be mailed off to Belgium to a new friend.

Greely is a beauty and so is her postcard! Can she come and teach me to make such a nice one? Hope your eyes are better - ouch! I love the piece you made about it, but what a way to make art!
