A couple OWH cards … co-created :D

September 24, 2010 § Leave a comment

Went over to Crickitt’s place yesterday and together we made a few Operation Write Home cards. What started as me playing with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and stencils devolved rapidly into sorting a pound of confetti to make masks for background papers for cards. The results – a half dozen OWH Hanukkah cards, sharing a couple here we sort of “created” together.

New creations coming soon:

Spent the afternoon with my partner in creative crime, coming up with some designs for Operation Write Home cards, and in her genius she suggested I turn the papers into a digital scrapbook paper. So, expect some holiday papers to come soon. Also, I’ve been working diligently on my “Golden Goddess” digi stamp collection, based on the pin ups of the Golden Age of Hollywood (1930s). Should be launching an ETSY store next week with them, but will have a preview freebie up soon!

still working on my card-making skills. This lacks some pizzaz and alteration, I’m sure but I used a digital stamp from Create With TLC, created my own word art and colored the bunny with watercolor pencils. Papers are Club Scrap and Bazzill Basics. This is for the 700 followers challenge, and my first card for Operation Write Home. 😀

I’m in the process of turning the utility room into my creation studio, and while researching per-gallon paint prices came across this nifty little deal at Home Depot online. Get a 14-color sampler of Martha Stewart paint for under $10.

Now, why is this “enabling?” It’s acrylic wall paint. Essentially a similar type paint to “craft paint” and it ships to you free. The colors are nice, would look good on altered canvases or wood projects. Or heck, if you’re playing with what color to paint a room this could help a bit too! 😀

A few digital tricks, nothing new or inventive, just tinkering a bit with things. I turned all but the baby into grayscale, and used her swimsuit to pick the color palette for the digital papers and elements (Club Scrap, Surf’s Up and Castaway kits). While chasing her down the beach with the camera, I took a second to snap the footprints before the surf washed them away.

Title design is Create With TLC.

Just a little bit of playing again …

This layout is using Club Scrap’s Naturally kit and another TLC sentiment. Photo was edited with a lomography effect and vignette.

Altered the photos of my daughter shadowdancing to be more of a neon effect. The sentiment from Create With TLC worked beautifully with the design, and the digital scrapbook elements and template are Club Scrap’s current Adobe digital kit.

Where Am I?
