This week I've been playing with mixed media and managed to salvage a couple cards. Not sure what I'll do with them yet but will probably send them out to friends, something that I just don't do enough.
Have a great weekend,
The 4th of July will be here soon and I love the colors of our country. I've decorated this adorable gnome to celebrate the season.
I first covered the hat with alternating red and white strips paper in a wave pattern. Next came the body that is covered in a blue plaid. I used a black marker to color in the feet.
Before the hair was added it was embossed to give texture and then edged with some brown ink. Every patriotic gnome needs a red bow.
I like to mix things up sometimes to I used the "Summer" from the Word n Shape Summer - Flip Flop. You will see the Flip Flops later in another project. I painted the word blue to match the theme.To make this little guy stand up I used the base from one of the Frameables, covered with paper and then added some grass using a die from my stash.
Now you may find this shocking, but todays post is not a card. I have been trying to get around to giving journaling a go so I've been stepping out of my comfort zone. I have two very different pages to share today using flowers.
Just a quick stop by to share some cards I made for our club Sunshine Committee using Gold String Washi Tape and the Floral Doodles Die Set, both from Altenew. I also used Soft Finish Cardstock from Elizabeth Craft Designs and the "Thinking of You" die from Karen Burniston.
It's Designer Challenge day and this time Karen wants us to make a mini slimline. I had a double challenge this time because my friend, Mary, showed me a card that pops up from the center and asked if I could do that. As it turns out, yes, I can.
I used the Flower Pot lattice section to hold all the goodies. I did some alterations which I explain in the video. All the products I used are linked below so all you need to do is chick on the link to see all the details.
