I attended Cheryl Sun-Ong’s Dreamy Watercolor Workshop last November and learned about loose watercolor style painting. The workshop was held at Fully Booked BGC and I really learned a lot from Cheryl’s teaching style. She broke down the process of painting and taught us how to replicate that soft and dreamy florals using the Shin Han paints and Namura brush that came in with the set.
Ok, i said i'm taking a break from botanicals, but today's workshop was super awesome I had to post! This dreamy watercolor style is worlds away from my usual style that's why I signed up. Plus, i really wanted a Namura brush for myself! Thanks for the very informative workshop, @chesun_ong! I really learned a lot! ❤️🎨🖌 #watercolor #flowers #workshop #shinhan #namurabrush #artwithchesun #keeponlrarning
Immensely loving the outcome of my work during the workshop (sorry, I didn’t really think I could produce such work!). I decided to make them in to postcards. My good friend Helen has always been a supporter of my work requested me to create personalized postcards to her friends. They will soon be sent out to different parts of the world from Spain to Switzerland to UAE to the US and of course to different islands within the Philippines.
Using the same process as I have with creating my notecards, I scanned the original work and edited and made the pattern in Photoshop.
Dainty flowers + bold colors = ❤️Created this personalized postcard design for @sleepyheadrose who plans to send out postcards to her friends this coming holiday season 🎄How thoughtful! How do you make gifts personal and special without getting bankrupt? Share & comment below! #postcards #design #papergoods #stationery #supporthandmade #madewithlove #supportlocal #acolorstory
By adjusting the hue and saturation as well as color balance, I came up with different color schemes for the same pattern, tweaked here and there before the finalized printing. Each personalized postcard is sold 50 Php each, 4×6 inches on 220 GMS paper. Each card comes with a protective sleeve to ensure that the handwriting and art stay intact while travelling.
