Bleached Kitties

Bleach Blocking is such a fun technique from the last TJ newsletter.  This darling stamp is from I brake for Stamps.  The die cut words are from the Handwritten die set from Little B.  The kitties are colored with copics.    When I took the picture I realized that the second dot on the word invited was in the wrong spot and I fixed it......    *sigh*

Bleached Birthday

Bleach blocking is one of the techniques in the last Technique Junkie newsletter.  The music stamp is from Technique Junkie and the Happy Birthday die is from Little B Handwritten die set. 
This week is going to be a rough one for us ol' grandparents.  Watching the two youngest grandkids for a whole week while mommy and daddy celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary on vacation.  I think I know why God gave children to you when you were young.....they really wear us out!  They are 2 and 6 years old.  The hardest part will be getting the first grader to school......at 7:45am!!

Just a few more Desolv'd cards

Okay.....I know that you are probably getting tired of all the cards using this technique but they were just too fun to make.  These cards are really different from the others.  They used the technique paper simply on a card base.  I really love the Inspire one as it reminds me of a cave.    That particular piece started life as text on a page!  The card bases are white and they are hard to see but they are there!

Desolv'd flowers

Another from the Desolv'd technique from the Technique Junkie newsletter.  This card uses a Darice embossing folder.  After I embossed the background paper, I rubbed a baby wipe over the raised area to remove some of the ink.  I then colored the raised area with a white Pitt Marker.  The 'thanks' is from a die set from Little B called handwritten.  It is a pretty cool little set!

Desolv'd fishing

Here is a third card using the Desolv'd technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter.  This card uses the technique for the background AND the image.  The technique gives you TONS of background pieces in one session and you just never know what you'll get!

Desolv'd Christmas

Here is another card using the Desolv'd technique from the Technique Junkie newsletter.  The dark colors were a nice backdrop for the deer.  The deer stamp comes with a small star above the deer which I didn't use on this card.  The deer was color with copics.

Desolv'd Sympathy

 The December newsletter from Technique Junkie is hot off the press and below is a card made from the technique called Desolv'd Images.  This technique is a little messy but the results are really beautiful.  The white border and words were cut from my Silhouette Portrait.  Enjoy!  More with this same technique coming tomorrow.    Click on the image to see it a little larger.....the detail in the background that was made is really beautiful.

Radiant Faces Class - Week four

I'm finally getting back to my Radiant Faces Class.  This week's teacher was Julie Gibbons with the topic of the Inner Goddess.  The mandala we created was to be our Inner Goddess. 

I put off this lesson because I really didn't particularly agree with some of the logic for the Inner Goddess but I decided that I would take it as the art lesson that it was to be and really enjoyed created.  She has white eyebrows because my hair is white.  The white dots in the hair also because of my white hair. 

The second part of this lesson by Effy Wild showed me something that is totally against what I would normally do......she didn't color each continuous chunk of hair with the same color.  Horror!  I'm glad I took that into my piece. 

When she was all done, I decided to add lashes and the minute the lashes started to go on, I regretted it.  She was pretty without them.  But I had already committed with the start of the lashes so I continued and added some white dots to match the hair.  It redeemed it a little for me!  The flowers around the outside edge because flowers are part of me!

I hope you enjoy!  *Note to self*......when coloring with copics away from home, have a better light source.  There were some errors that I couldn't correct.....*sigh*......
