Oh I am a bad blogger...but sometimes life just gets in the way and I have to prioritize in order to keep up! We had a fabulous day today - my youngest son had his year end carnival at playschool and we had a great time. The rain managed to hold off for the most part and I kept oldest son home from school so he could enjoy it too.
So...Sketch of the Week was done and posted on the forum but I did forget to post it here. I discovered on Photoshop how to create new patterns so I borrowed some cute pp from Little Yellow Bicycle for this sketch - I don't yet have this paper but thinkin I may need it!! This is a great sketch for scraps so pull em out!
Other goodies I worked on this week were the year end scrapbook/yearbook for playschool. It was 32 pages but done in 8 1/2 by 11 and I have to say that I just don't enjoy working with that size. It works great for something like this as you have to try and put a lot of pictures on a page but no room for techniques!
I also got my kit up at the LSS - and it is selling super well! I am happy and the owner is happy so all is good!
And last but not least, I got all the goodies done for my first class at the LSS!!! I am going to be doing a class on Alcohol Inks and can't wait! I did 2 layouts and 2 cards so that we could start out super basic and work our way up to advanced...and there seems to be a lot of interest so YAY!!
The first layout will probably end up being a Father's Day present for my Daddy as it is a picture of his mom in 1913 at the age of 1.... although I love it so much that if I do give it to him, I will have to reproduce one for myself! This one will help teach how to colour transparencies, stickers and flowers with AI. This is that layout:
And the other layout is using some different techniques with stamping and alcohol ink, colouring foam letters and acrylic and then altering buttons. If you notice the denim flower, that is courtesy of my sons new cutoffs!!!
If you are interested in the class, please pop into Creative Scrapbook and sign up or send me a message and I will give you more info!!
Don't forget about the Design Team Call for A PILE OF SCRAP! Deadline is Tuesday June 23rd and I would love to see so many entries that we don't know what to do with them all!!!
And that is all my goodies for the week ! I am hoping to go to bed early tonight as I am tuckered right out. I think I shall work on my son's teacher/busdriver gifts tomorrow as the weather isn't supposed to be super nice.... Hope you all have a great weekend!!!
