One of my favorite parts of being an artist is making gifts. Something about homemade gifts go a long way and say more than a “store-bought” gifts. I love making DIY crafts and photo cards for special occasions!
I personally love to make gifts
- Unique – Add your style
- Customizable – Add their names and their interests
- Thoughtful – At least in my family, a gift that comes from the heart goes a long way
- Not everyone will have something that is handmade
Some DIY crafts that I have made for family.
A lot of the times I will use a photo as a birthday card, sympathy card etc.
I will find a photo that fits the occasion. Flowers and landscapes for birthdays. Sunsets/sunrises for sympathy cards.
A few years ago I made this card for my mom for Mother’s Day, now you can find it in my shops and get one for your mom!
Or I will create a card in Corel Paintshop Pro
This is a Mother’s Day card I made for my mom this past year, and a Get well card I made for my Aunt when she is was sick. She loves flamingos.
Once in a while I will draw something or create a digital work in Corel Paintshop Pro
I’m not the best when it comes to drawing… but I saw a painting in a store that looked similar to this one that my mom loved. I created my own by adding my own touches like my style and my pets.
What is your favorite part of being a artist?
