Making and Giving Away more Postcards!!

My daughter Ellen is participating in a fundraiser for the Canadian Diabetes Association.  She is walking in a 24 Km hike in Iceland in August!! I think it's just so great that she and her co-workers at Barber Ha are all doing this together and working together to raise funds.  They have had several themed parties and more are planned. 

In an effort to help Ellen - I am going to send a handmade Mandala postcard to anyone who donates $25 or more.

Click on this link Pledge Ellen Lagore to make your donation and then email me with your address so I can send your postcard to you.  My email is emily at emilylagore dot com.

I am so excited to help Ellen and to be making cards to send out to all of you!!

Here is my process so far -

I created some background pages with spray inks - Dylusions pretty pretty colours - and used my own handmade stencils.

Then I used my method of sealing and toning down the inks with a glaze - the tutorial can be found here. The pages looked quite different after - perfect for doodling Mandalas on!!

I have started doodling already and when I complete some pages I will post my results. 

Many thanks to anyone who finds it in their hearts to donate - Ellen and I truly do appreciate it!!


  1. Hi Emily...
    LOVE your doodling!!! I have a few questions: Is there a difference in your mandalas and flowers? Do you use a ruler in your mandalas? What pens do you use? just the Copic Multiliners? Even on prepared pages?
    Sorry for all the questions, but I want to learn more. LOVE YOUR WORK!!!
    Have a nice day, Monica
