Postcards & bookmarks

Now that I have had confirmation of receipt I can show you a couple of new pieces that I have recently made. These pieces were made as trades - a postcard and a bookmark.
The postcard was a mixed media piece mainly worked in ink, watercolour and acrylic with an acrylic satin varnish finish. Its theme was inspired by artworks featuring the Buddha. I particluarly enjoyed creating this peace immersing myself totally whilst I was working on it.  I have also created a digital image of the postcard and placed it onto a mug ( 'Live, laugh, drink' mug ) alongside the following quote:
 'When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky' 
♥♥ The title of the mug, which I think is very apt, was chosen by my gorgeous girl ♥♥  
I may also have some prints made soon on some really good quality paper to place in my Etsy shop.

The bookmark was worked on red craft paper and was created in pen & ink before laminating to ensure longevity. 
 'Cats, Coffee & Books' 
(for me these 3 things embody cosiness, relaxation and contentment)
