Online Class Sale!!!!!

My friend, Megan Suarez, is an awesome artist.  She has created some darling workshops that you might want to check out.  Her first workshop is the one that I took.......Whimsy Girls.  I posted the drawings I made of my girls a couple of months ago.  She also has a workshop on Mermaids, Cute and Creepy AND an awesome workshop on Art Journaling that has you completing something like 10 - 12 pages.

Megan took their dog to the vet yesterday and found lots of cancerous tumors and a kidney that is shutting down.  They were going to put the dog to sleep today.  Since the vet bills ate up the rent money, Megan is having a sale of her artwork and workshops to cover the expense.    I shared this info in case you want to take any of the workshops and help Megan out as well! 

Here is her website:

Pressed Stains

No........I'm not ironing!!  Pressed Stains is a super fun technique from the most recent issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter.  I had a friend over.........Laura and I had a lot of fun.  She brought a hostess stamp set from SU and we colored up the Flower with copics.  Then we made the backgrounds to match the flowers.  I had one flower already colored up from the week before and had put a blue background around it.  The backgrounds we had made didn't have any blue and it looked really funny with them.  So......I made another background using a little blue and it was just perfect.  I love how every background is just a little different.  I hope you enjoy!  I included all four....I just couldn't decide which one I wanted to do the most!  Sorry...the scan was a little off.  The Hero Arts sentiment stamp had stamped the edge under the words and I thought it looked like it was supposed to be there so I stamped three more like it.  ;-)

Another Spotty Copic Grid

I love the interest that the Spotty Copic Grid gives to the background.  The dies are from Memory Box and can be found here (classy cards & such) for the birds and here for the tree.
The sentiment is from Sweet N Sassy Stamps.

Okay.....I have NO idea why blogger does this but no matter what orientation I save my card photo, it always tries to insert it into my post rotated incorrectly.  So.......sorry!  Turn your head and pretend it is your neck exercise for the day!

Cool technique from the new newsletter

Spotty Copic Grid is such a fun technique that is in the June/July issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter.  I was really tickled to see that both of my samples for this technique made it into the current printed form of the newsletter..  ;-)  I usually have a ton of layers and have a more complicated card and it was really refreshing to do something more simple!

I used a Memory Box die and SU sentiment.   You can find Memory Box dies HERE!

Hope you enjoy......I'll share one more tomorrow.
