Hello, folks! Long time, no see!
I've been really bad about blogging, but I have been busy crafting away on future projects.
This week, aside from the full time job and DT committments, I've attended a recognition reception at work, renewed my CPR certification, & attended a Mother's Day breakfast. Busy week, but there were some great moments! :). I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend too!
So I usually try to reserve Saturdays for Time for Tea Designs. This Girl on Bench digi stamp is so lovely and versatile. Another DT member, Anita, put her on grass. I put her on a park walkway. I got to practice drawing based on dimensions and perspectives. This takes me back to my art classes back in high school and college. I should've made the walkway a bit bigger though :).
The clouds are made by cutting a cloud stencil on just your basic white cardstock. I used some metallic pigments on a piece of napkin (cotton balls work too), and just rubbed the edges of the stencil out. And for the grass, I used just basic flicking motions with my green Copics.
I think I will be giving this card away to my sister for Mother's Day. The floral designs are perfect for it!
Speaking of Mother's Day, I wish you all a lovely one tomorrow! We'll be celebrating at my mom's with a nice brunch and my hubby said he'll let me sleep in again (just like today!). I'm thanking God for all my blessings, big and small!
Oh, and in other news, please don't forget that this is going on at Some Odd Girl's Ning Community:
There are so many STELLAR entries! I had a tough time picking my vote! Remember that voting ends next Wednesday!
See you tomorrow!
