Learning is a treasure
Our matric children can actually look forward to end their academic year after a very disordered year. A year that should have many highlights and lowlights with a lot of expectations from Class 2020, they will go down in the history books as the year they survived a world pandemic. Probably not what they intended to write in their history books. The trail exams is 2 weeks away.
Today I made a card for my neighbour's daughter. Just something to wish her luck for the next 3 months to come. I used some techniques that I most definitely not use often. I used chalk to blend the background. I used black, blue and purple for the background. Then I used Versa Magic Perfect Plumeria to add some dots with a brush. The dragonfly is an emboss stencil that I used with some watercolour paint. I used a recycled ribbon for the centre. I love to add ribbon where paper meet, it just give a nice finishing touch. I made a bow with a brad as centrepiece. Gems from Prima Marketing with all the colours in add the final touch. The sentiment is computer generated.
