Color and Light study

Did a color and light study from a picture I took recently. There were such beautiful color shifts, I really enjoyed this one.
Was hoping to do a quick 30 minute study, but ended up spending almost an hour!

And this is the reference I used.

I was trying to record my process, but the software I was using did not let me record for more than 5 minutes :/  But then I made a GIF of my process. YAY!!

I shipped my 1st ETSY order today

Finally after constant efforts since September, I finally got my first order!! Oh, I was so excited! I finally got to use all my shipping supplies!

I was sure I wanted to invest into packaging. Nothing really fancy or expensive but definitely something personal.

I tried to take pictures along the way. I gathered all my supplies. The bookmarks, brown paper, backing board, clear sleeve, some twine and buttons and washi tape! I also got 'DO NOT BEND' stickers printed :)

I then secured the bookmarks to the backing board with some clear photo corners. The backing board looked too plain so I added some washi tape to decorate.

I then packed it into a clear sleeve and wrapped it with brown paper. I tied some red and blue twine around the top part and added a cute little button!

I then hand wrote 'Thank you' at the bottom. I am looking into investing into a pretty stamp to make this part easier. Have my eyes on some stamps on ETSY. Hopefully I will get one soon. 

I finally added a note on my postcard, assembled everything and it was ready to be shipped. I used a stiff mailer envelope and added my 'Do Not Bend' sticker. Voila!

What do you guys think? Any suggestions?
Don't forget to visit my ETSY store :)
