Last weekend was Mother’s Day, I hope you all spoiled your mums with gifts or spent some quality time with them! Apart from a small present, I also had time to make my mum a card for the day ^_^.
My parents are taking a trip to Turkey later in the year and I wanted to do something inspired by Turkish patterns and designs. I even made a small collage/moodboard for it for my art journal.
I took elements from the images as well as others I found online and arranged them on tracing paper to make my own design. I’m surprised I didn’t tear it because I erased and redrew parts several times over before I was happy with them.
While I tried to transfer the design directly from the tracing paper, it wasn’t working out the way I hoped. I ended up scanning and then reprinting the image before tracing it (using my makeshift lightbox) directly onto the final card.
‘And that, as they say, is that’. What did you guys give your mums for Mother’s Day?
