Happy Monday ladies. What great weather, you would never know we are coming up
on the middle of Dec. This Thursday will be the last of our Christmas
cards. Next week we will make a New Years card. This week we will use a
technique we used once before, stamping on the embossing folder. I used
crystal stickles on the sides of my trees but I will have you do that at
home. Email hollyth@shaw .ca to sign up for
10am, 11am noon 2pm, 3pm, 4pm or 5pm. Remember your adhesive and a travel mug
It's a new year and many of you are wanting to take your Copic coloring to
the next level. If you loved what you learned in the Copics Basic class, or are
just wanting to learn to blend and color with your own Copic collection, or
maybe it's been awhile since you picked up your pens, then this is the class for
you. In this class Shari will show you how to blend whites for polar bears, and
you will get to practice, practice, practice your color blending with all three
cards. You will be coloring three adorable images including a cute Stamping
Bella, an Art Impressions penguin stack, and a cute Elizabeth Crafts polar bear
card. It's never too early to start making those Christmas cards!
Are you looking for a new coloring medium and just happen to have a set of
Prismacolor Premier Pencils just laying around collecting dust? Or did you buy
the Prismacolor pencils to use with your Copic colored images, and now want to
learn how to color with just the pencils? If you answered yes to either of
these questions, then Shari is going to be back in January teaching you to use
your Prismacolor pencils to make three beautiful cards!!! You'll be coloring an
adorable Penny Black image on Kraft paper, a Stamping Bella image on Mi-Teintes
paper, and finally Shari has listened to your requests and has designed a
sympathy card using a Penny Black image. Come and join in the fun!
Class limit is set at 12 only, so don't delay in signing up for this
Where do You draw your ideas and inspiration from?
Like most Scrapbookers, I am always on the look out for a spark to launch into the next project. This 'blueprint' started with the idea, that I would scrapbook a series of photos I have snapped on my phone recently.
I am one of those people without skills that will run to every window or deck around the house to get a photo of the moon. The full moon calls to me. I will pull over on the side of the road to try to capture its essence too. I never got them into a printer from my phone. I really did have every intention of doing a layout. However, this is what happened.
A trip to pinterest for the multiple mood board ideas.
I LOVE Pocket letters, I love the way they go together, the way they look, everything about them! The moon photo had so many layers of blue that I was searching for to launch from. This is a pocket letter beginnings post. The theme for this swap I am hosting at 'Paper Traders mail Art Group' is 'Winter'.
For the background I chose a paper placemat that suited the color pallet I needed. It doesn't matter that I am winter themed, but using a flower background. I cut it to work as a solid piece for the beginnings basically 8-1/2" x 10-1/2". You can see that I gridded it off into ATC size sections. This will help to position some of the elements before I cut them apart into individual cards.
Next I added some stamping and embossing for the background. Also gathered and made different elements that will be on the final work.
I used a crafters workshop 'aspen' template to get the tree outlines. Along with the cut off pieces from the placemat. The colors will match perfectly. Then I fussy cut them and added inks for a more real looking treeline.
Check back next Friday to see how the end project came together!
