First of all: I want to thank you for the kind, supportive words about my canvas! You guys are the best blog readers a girl could ever wish for! ♥
Today's the deadline for cards to Inzpira Magazine, so I've started organizing my folders and trying to get it all into an easily viewable and similarly named order. In other words, I am knee deep in beautiful cards (not literally, unfortunately) and I LOVE it!
Seriously. Scandinavia has such amaaazing artists! (And if any of you guys out there have yet to send me cards for the sketch or the theme - go for it! You still have this day!)
I'm also taking Jeanne Oliver's awesome class, happily fiddling with my art a'la Christy Tomlinsson and scrapping a little, since there's a crop going on over at the Nook (a.k.a the best forum on the interwebs - with the prettiest gallery, the most supportive, sweet and talented members aaand the best kits).
Just because I can't stay away.
I recently ordered a subscription to the Nook kits for myself again.
It's too tricky to stay away and I need that mojo boost they always bring. I also happened to stumble a little and accidentally click (at least that's what I tell my husband/wallet... ;)) the Valentine's Class which I'm now VERY much looking forward to.
Gone crazy with the classes? ME?
Oh yes. And I love every single little itty bitty second of it. It's so much FUN to learn new things and to be inspired by artists this talented!
My advice to you:
If you do ONE thing for yourself this year: spend a little money on yourself and on your creativity. Try new things! Evolve! It will be money very well spent, I assure you.
That said - here's another thing that makes me a better person. My friends:
Papers: Bazzill and Lily Bee
Mists: Ranger Distress Ink Refillers
Alphas: Lily Bee & American Crafts
Other: jenni Bowlin Bingo-chippie, tag, Baker's Twine, lace, pen.
Made for the Nook New Years Crop challenge #1.
I've since cheated a little and added stickles & crackle accents to the #2, stickles to the edges of the flowers and two staplers on each side of the lace... Don't tell teacher! (Kidding!)
