Well...this card is the last project I will complete until I have sorted, purged, cleaned and organized my studio! It was the birthday card I made for Weston's 21st birthday...seriously -- how can I have a son that is 21?!?!?!?! The large compass was made by using a Tattered Angels Glimmer Screen, Distress Ink and a stipple brush. I added some dimension to it with Copic Markers and my white Signo pen. I promise I will work on a tutorial once I get the studio straightened up. By the way - BlueMoon Scrapbooking has a sale going on a set of 12 Copic Sketch Markers...it is a really good way to get started with them, if you haven't already. Just click the link above and it will take you to the sale page.
Over the course of creating projects for What You Make It, I have accumulated duplicates of many things and have lots of partial paper packs and embellishments...and while I LOVE all the products, I need to get ready for all the projects I will be doing this fall. So, I am seriously doing a MAJOR purge - I am being ruthless so that I don't have to do this again for awhile...and will be creating some "Scrappy Surprise Boxes" to post on Ebay....but I thought I would make them available here first. Each box will be unique...so I won't be able to show you what is in them...but I promise I will fill a flat rate USPS box to the brim with paper, stamps, ribbons, ink, trim, embellies, alterable items....who knows what all. Let me know if you might be interested...They will be $35 and $50 with shipping included. I can send you a PayPal invoice.
Ok...I am headed to bed....am looking forward to church in the morning...and then I will be back in the studio to once again plow through the sorting and purging. This is my least favorite thing to do...but I will put some really "happy" music on and keep thinking about how much fun these goodies are going to have being used by another artist!
I may even do some give aways on my YouTube channel...so please check it out next week as well.
Ok...I tell you what...let's do a give away here to start out! I have a 7 Gypsies ATC and Photo Display that I will send to the lucky winner.
I love mine - I change it out with the changing of the seasons - just a fun way to display pictures, cards and items from swaps. To enter, leave me a comment and tell me what you do to keep yourself motivated when you have to do something you don't enjoy! I will probably need ALL of your suggestions to get through this week! *smile* I will do a drawing next Sunday night July 31, 2011.
