When I was about eleven, I made card for my mom or dad for some occasion and came up with a silly little “Hallmark” parody logo of a tiny dog wearing a crown. I called it “Smallbark”, and I’ve been placing the logo on the back of all my handmade cards ever since.
I didn’t always have time to make everyone a card by hand, but I’ve been collecting materials for years and I finally have the time to see this through! And thanks to technology, online shops like Etsy are easy to set up and maintain.
So, in the coming months I will be building a separate page for my little brand- please take a look!
(Please bear in mind that I am currently creating and uploading examples to my portfolio there!)
ALL cards are 100% handmade, with mixed media including:
- Acrylic and oil paint
- Original photography
- Original photoshop graphics
- Handmade paper
- Fabric and fiber
- Original illustrations
- Found objects and other unconventional media!
I’ve had this idea on the back burner for years, and I’m finally going to do something about it!
