WOYWW 156

WOYWW is three years old! Crazy idea, maybe, but it's fun to travel round the world to see what everyone is up to.Take a peek over on Julia's blog here. I've been peeking in off and on for the past three years and figured it was about time I joined in...so here's a look at my work desk. I am in the midst of water coloring images for my next class. At the moment I'm using Distress Inks on this batch of images.

Enjoy!

Towers x 2

Hi everyone,

Well here's the projects I've been working on for the past 2 months in between my classes. I just loved the Tower Project by The Gentleman Crafter found here. I downloaded his pdf and made my versions following Jim's instructions. Thanks Jim, your instructions were great!

I have lots of pics to post. For tonight just a couple to whet your appetites. :D The rest still need to be edited and then I'll post them on their own page tab. Look for a new tab called Towers tomorrow afternoon.

So without further ta-do I present:

Ode to T.H. Grunge and Victorian Ephemera towers

Enjoy!








I wish the pics of the pair were better... another cloudy day. New light box is on it's way!!!
Back tomorrow with the rest of the pics on their own page tab - Towers...

Life . . .

Looking for my projects that go with the sneak peek? The recipient hasn't received it yet and I don't want to spoil the surprise. ;D

In the meantime, here's a card I made last month using only SU! products. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

Enjoy!

pretty in pink


This is my second post using the new laptop!!!! It's SO cool to have a computer that "works"!! Course, it takes some getting used to....a lot of changes in Windows and it's not an iPad! Do you know how many times I've reach for the screen?! LOL

Okay on to today's post. This is the Mother's Day card I sold. I made 2....very light business for me this year. My card is a CASE of ... who else - Becca Feeken! You can see her card HERE. I kept the layout and used pink as my focal color. My changes were the DP, sentiment, no lace (forgot it), the rosette and I added liquid pearls.

Sorry the pic is dark and a bit blurry, I was in a rush to get this sent off as it had to be remailed to the end recipient.

Enjoy!


Supplies:
card stock: bazzill, unknown dp
ink: memento, th distress
stamps: gkd; inkadinkado
other: ranger liquid pearls; seam binding (hug); th rosette dies, nesties label 25


p.s. project sneak peek....

The below pics of the Vintage Barn, Wolf Portrait and Z-fold Buffalo cards are from my card class last week. The theme this month was Masculine cards . I took the pics outside and of course a bank of dark clouds came by just as I was taking these pics. I hope they're not too dark.


Enjoy!

ink: t.h. distress, memento
other: twine, corner punch, chomper, cork, nibs

Darn

Well, I'm trying to post new pics but this new updated blogger doesn't like my old computer! Getting late I'll attack it in the morning. Hope you're having a great week! Hot weather has finally returned to Central FL. Yea! To borrow a quote: "I'll be back."
