Beginning next Monday, some of the ladies from my Connection Group (Sunday School class) will meet once a month to make a couple of cards. This is something I've been planning to do for quite awhile, and since things are slowing down at Paper Arts (as far as the number of classes I'm teaching) I thought it would be a good time to start this. Here's the first two cards:
|I used "Sassy Salutations" stamp set from Stampin' Up and patterned paper from my stash for this card. Some people may make a purple version since I don't have enough of the flowered paper. The final version of this card has a red bow at the top.|
Since school's almost out for the year, I'd better post this Prima Doll School Art Journal Page before it's summer.
The background is printed from a Gelli Plate - the green reminds me of the wall color that we had in junior high years ago. The arrows represent the decisions we all had to make in school. The hardest part of this page was the lockers - done with lots of measuring, marking with a black Pitt pen, highlighting the vents with a white paint pen and coloring the number plates and handles with a silver Sharpie. I used a Montana acrylic paint marker for the floor and numbered Washi tape across the very bottom. The stamp is from Hobby Lobby - I liked the sentiment and thought it was good advice for everyone. The Prima dolls are stamped and embossed on cream paper. The clothes are stamped on different color/patterns of paper and embossed. The shoes and hair are colored in with Pitt pens. I really like Pitt Big Brush pens because they are permanent when dry, but stay wet just long enough to blend a little, if you want.
