I had to make another postcard for a swap in one of my yahoo groups. I decided to create the side of a red barn with daffodils blooming beside it.
I love seeing daffodils blooming in the spring especially after such a long, cold winter like the one we just had or are still having. Seeing the yellow of the daffodils just makes me happy. Also I have always loved the intensity of a bright red barn. I thought both of these could chase away the winter blues.
I tried to make sure that I did some thread painting since that is a skill that I need to improve. I think it came out pretty good, but I am never sure how much I should do for these swaps. Sometimes I feel that I should have done more although this card took about 5 hours from beginning to end since I don’t work really fast.
Now that I look at it I realize that the window is pretty low and very close to the ground. Oh well…too late now! This is a barn for hobbits.
