My Christmas fine art card preparation
I’m adding layer after layer of coloured pencils. With the help of Zest-it solvent, the pigments sink into the paper, causing a paint-like impression. Slowly Raphael’s Madonna with baby Jesus appear from the void.

I’ve discovered a marvellous, little book. It is named ‘The Art of the Handwritten Note, a guide to reclaiming civilized communication‘ by Margaret Shepherd.
‘The handwritten note has been around for hundreds of years, and it’s not going to die out just because some of its everyday functions have been taken over by e-mail and voice mail‘, writes Margaret Shepherd. Here is the link to the book.
This small and beautiful book opens with a chapter ‘Good Reasons to Stop Making Excuses‘. You are not too busy, people do still write handwritten notes, and your neglected handwriting can be improved. Reclaim civilized communication with Shepherd’s book and my Fine Art cards. Not only you will be happy, you will keep the art of the handwritten note alive.
Here is my Pheasant Feather card. It was commissioned by a teacher for using as a handwritten note of praise to excellent students.
