Hello Winter

Hey everyone. This week at The Studio Challenges there is a selfie challenge. I don't know about you,
but I am rarely in any of the layouts I create. I am usually the one behind the camera (if not stealing photos off my daughter/niece's phones) so it's nice from time to time to create a page with me in it. I recently took an on line photography class, and snapped these selfies of myself and faithful companion Beau, while trying out the tips I learned. I used two lines from Carta Bella called 'Let It Snow' and 'Cabin Fever'. For the background I applied watered down distress ink with the packaging technique and allowed some of the ink to drip. I then stamped some snowflakes with the same ink and misted the stamp with some water. I love the effect this creates. I would also like to welcome the newest members of the our design team. Great job ladies. Your layouts rock!! Below are some close ups. Thanks for stopping by.

My Kind of Day


Hey everyone. I have my take on this month's sketch at The Studio Challenges to share with you today. Because it's February it features lots of hearts. I used Vicki Boutin's 'Color Kaleidoscope' collection for this page. All of the hearts and butterflies were fussy cut from pattern paper. Below is the sketch and some close ups. Thanks for stopping by.
