In honor of National Craft Month, I am posting my efforts from today. Granted they are not “handmade” but on the other hand, I did make them.
I received a gift of a Microsoft Office Suite which included 2010 Publisher Program. My computer had been factory reset and I had lost the key to my previous Office Suite. I was helpless! Especially without my Publisher. Do you have a program that you particularly like? I LOVE Publisher. It is so easy to use and I just feel like I can make it stand on end.
With our move to another Province, I decided my Art site needed an update and new name so I choose Skimmerhorn Studio. I have also been going to a couple of markets where I need to have a business card; cards for my hand painted glasses, etc. Improvisation was the name of the game. For business cards I used small (I mean mini) watercolour paintings and for a company name plate I painted a picture, and little white tags for prices.
Now with Publisher back on my computer I was able to take the painting and scan it to use in the creation of my new business Logo.
Here’s what I made today. My business cards in vertical; Name Tag; Tent Card (double sided) and Tags for the hand painted wineglasses.
Now I can use all those mini painting to make cards to celebrate National Craft Month all month long!
