Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


Let’s get back into sharing some projects that I’ve been working on. Granted these are relatively quick and easy as compared to scrapbook pages, but I’m still using my supplies and creating. It feels good.

I’ll share some ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards) and cards that I’ve done recently. I had a lot of fun making them, mostly because I’m using stamps from my vast collection. I can’t even tell you how many I have because I don’t know!

I’ll also share some class samples from a Copic coloring online class that I’m taking from Melissa & Kristy at Created from Color. Even though I’m Copic Certified, I’m sure that I’ll learn and practice more techniques on coloring skin, hair and using a light source.  Kristy owns Some Odd Girl stamp company (digis and clear) and I just love her images and coloring samples.

My share today is a card using a sketch from CPS (Card Positioning Systems) and color combo from Color Throwdown. Take a look:

Welcome to the HOP!

The HOP with Unity Stamps! I recently starting getting the Kit of the Month from Unity Stamps and I’ve really enjoyed it so far.

Here’s a card that I made using the August Kit of the Month, “Remember Happiness”. I used Ranger’s Embossing Ink Pad to stamp then embossed using PK Glitz’ yummy embossing powders! The oval is a Nestability from Spellbinders that I bought from Marco’s Paper.
