Go figure that I enter the very last time Mojo Monday occurs!
That said, the sketch was a good one:
So, seeing some of the designs that came in did help, but I wanted something a bit different. I love Verve Stamps and I wanted to convey a "happy trails" kind of theme without being too sappy (I am a bit of a sap, but don't ruin my rep!).
I came up with this:
The paper came from Illustrated Fairh, the ribbon came from Hobby Lobby, and the sentiment is from Verve's New Mercies set. I also figured out the two-finger bow method that Gina K. uses on her cards. Yay!
As a newer card maker, this was a push in the right direction; I like being challenged and I liked this result. :)
Hi, everyone! This lesson (the final one!!!) shows us an easy way to free-paint flowers and leaves.
Admittedly, I was a bit nervous since I don't normally free-paint and I was concerned my leaves would just end up looking like blobs on paper.
Thankfully, it didn't turn out that way!
Card one features a wreath design; it was supposed to be a more abstract wreath and my coloring proves just how abstract it is! (You can laugh; I sure did.) I can see where I need to improve upon but it did turn out well for the first try!
Card two is supposed to be layers of leaves; I was not happy with how it turned out because I was having trouble forming the leaves in the first place (IOW, it's totally the student's fault!). Thankfully, I was improving as time went on.
Card three is technically not a card; I didn't put it on a base. First time trying a rose and I wasn't happy with it. Instead, I'll focus on that happy blue flower that looks pretty. :D
