Customized gifts, cards, and mini albums. This blog represents a series of projects,styles,tutorials, and digital files. My passion is to make Art with Encouragement. You can find me on Facebook and Youtube sharing ideas and tutorials, as well as products I love to use.
Well, technically I have been m.i.a. being sick is no fun, but I've been busy making a few little things. They are mostly for a fundraiser I'll be taking part in that will be for an amazing cause. I can't wait to see what the other artists will be doing. I'm donating the painting I recently made of a fairy in a meadow and I hope some lucky little girl gets o take it home! Hope you're in the mood for some pics!
I have used this image before, but since I was making a card and didn't just want to toss the papers into my stash-I decided to make another card with the leftovers and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. The stamped image is Nurse Nora from Swiss Pixies, colored with watercolors. The paper and ribbon are from American Crafts, and from my old stash. I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the orange paper and a Martha Steward punch for the white border. TFL!
Hi there, I made this little card to enter in the challenge at Mojo Monday. I used a stamp I won from Kimberly Trevino and papers from American Crafts (awesome cardstock!!!) as well as papers from my stash and a Martha Stewart punch for the scallop edge. The diecut behind the little girl is from Cricut's Mother's Day 2010, and the stamp is from Sugarplums. Her name is Rainy Day Emma. I added glossy accents to give her some "dew" left from the rain. She has sunnier days ahead!! TFL!
This is the sketch:
Hello there, These are some ATC's I made for a Music ATC swap over at Alilscrapofheaven. I've been wanting to make ATC's and it was a great excuse to participate, and also use some different techniques on a small scale. I enjoy working with different mediums, with my favorite being Acrylic paints. I realize this doesn't pertain to scrapbooking, but since I prefer painting, I decided to include these on this blog as well. It's impossible to reproduce the same exact pattern on each ATC due to the way I paint, but I tried to keep these as similar as possible for the challenge, and also used Prismacolor pencils and India ink. Let me know what you think!
