I thought I'd take advantage of the "Shades of Red" theme over at Artistic Outpost, so I set out to make a card that uses one of their great images. I used a variety of products from other manufacturers, but my favorite part of the piece is the image itself. Check out Artistic Outpost here.
The next exercise in the Scrapbook Life class was to cut some random words out of magazines and use them in our journals. No stress, no pre-thought, no "plan". Mine were interestingly split into two categories. The first page pictured below is the page with the positive words and the characteristics that I aspire to. The second is a reflection of some past negative emotions and experiences that are better left in the past.
Two of my stamping friends and I decided to use our recently acquired Yellow Owl Workshop stamps for a small swap. Each of us made one card and one ATC for each of the other two participants. Here are my results:
I've always been fond of clock parts and clock images, so I used a clock theme for my alphabet journal's letter "C" page. I had a clock transparency in my very large pile of unused scrapbooking stuff, so I layered that on top of the background I made using various paints, inks and stamped images. I added an actual clock hand to the piece using a brad, then affixed a few little ephemera items and ribbons. Hope you like it. :)Debbie
...since I have soooo much "stuff" that I've accumulated over time! I'm past the stage where I say to myself "If I use this item now, I'll never have it to use again." and I'm REALLY trying to do things that are a bit out of the ordinary for me. This is the latest thing I've come up with! Credits to follow within 24 hours since I still haven't gotten to the point where I remember to write them down while I'm making something (darnit!). Enjoy, and have a wonderful weekend everyone.
