Spring Postcard Pop Up Shop

Remember Joulukorttikauppa: my online Christmas Card Shop? Well it’s not Christmas right now – even though it snowed yesterday in Finland – but I decided to open a Spring edition of the shop. There I sell my non-Christmas postcards and art prints during May 2017.  From the selection you can find postcards for Finnish celebrations

The holiday season is coming closer. Do you know what that means? It means that Joulukorttikauppa volume 2015 has been opened. Wohoo!

On paljon asioita, joita ei muista arvostaa ennenkuin niitä ei ole. Esimerkiksi terveys. Olen perusterve nuori nainen, mutta olen muistanut olla siitä kiitollinen nyt vasta kun flunssa on iskeytynyt kehooni ja pakottanut minut lepäämään.

Postikorttiprojektin jälkeen olen jatkanut postikorttipapereille piirtämistä. Olet saattanut nähdä osan näistä piirustuksista instagram-tililläni @ellimaanpaa aiemmin. After the Postcard Project I have continue sketching on the postcard papers. You might have seen some of these drawings in my instagram account @ellimaanpaa earlier. Jos minulla ei ole musteita käden ulottuvilla olen käyttänyt väritykseen myös puuvärejä, … If I haven’t had inks at hand

Guinea Pigs

Piirsin veljenpojilleni – jotka asuvat aurinkoisessa Californiassa – marsupostikortit. Jotta rauha säilyy kotona, lähetin molemmille oman kortin. Mukavaa viikkoa! I drew my nephews – who live in sunny California – guinea pig postcards. To keep the peace in the family I sent both their own card. Have a enjoyable week!

Want a Postcard?

Would you like to receive a self-made… …postcard… …from me? Yesterday I got an lovely idea thanks to my mom who asked me to draw a “Thank you” -card for our relatives. There is still couple of months left of my sketch-a-day challenge. For the whole year I’ve been sketching daily – sometimes big and bold paintings
