They say that you should do things that spark joy. For me that is creating something that would spread the love (safely , I might add) in these uncertain times.
To do this, I made cards and postcards and sent them to my friends and posted some through postboxes that had rainbows in the windows.
These cards were very simple to create. I just cut out the stamps out of a rubber and stamped the ‘u’ and embossed it with gold glitter.
Making these cards has made me realise how easy printing is to create a large amount of work. I could have kept making cards for hours but I run out of resources.
During lockdown, I was also thinking about other ways of getting my work out into the wide world. I decided to submit one of my postcard designs to the @postcardsfrompandemics instagram account. I’ve attached the page so you can go and take a look, I am number 87.
I hope these cards inspired people to spread the love and sparked the chain reaction that I hoped it would.
