Howdy. Guess what? I have another video for you today. I was able to do several videos awhile back – and thank God I did. I have since lost my mojo and it is no where to be found. Eek!
Today’s video is one I did for the Hero Arts blog – it shows how to create a card with elements “floating” over a window. A fun effect. I like to create cards that are unique – something Hallmark doesn’t do. This fits the bill.
I used the new Pool Notecards from Hero Arts for this. LOVE the colors in this set – three shades of pool.
For the rest of the supplies, please check the bottom of this post.
I try not to share too much non-crafty stuff here, but a few people asked about how Colin did on his first day of school. It went perfectly. He LOVES it and day 2 was fab, too. I am so thankful. Any moms out there with issues of anxiety can relate to how tough things like this can be on us. So thank you for your encouragement. Here are pics of the school boy…
Something else to check out…
My dear friend Kristina is working hard to raise money for research for type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is heartbreaking – something my brother has battled with for years. So, I feel very strongly about supporting these efforts.
She also has lots of prizes you can win with a simple $10 donation. You can see them all here – one is even an iPad2! Please consider checking it out. (Big hugs to you, Kristina. Proud of you.)
Here is another great thing to check out: My friend Ali was just nominated for “The Moms Who Are Changing Your World” award in the inspiration category over at Babble. If she wins, $5000 will be donated to Ali’s two favorite charities. I have known Ali for many, many years and she deserves this award for many reasons. Please consider going to vote for her HERE. (Way to go, Ali! Proud of you, too.)
A few people asked about the class structure of my upcoming Inspiration Showcase class. Here is a bit about it:
Each row of the canvas represents a category of techniques – from resist to finishing touches to Distress Inks and more. On the first day of class, I will walk you through the first row and all of the techniques. On the second day, I’ll share cards using these techniques, along with a project from a guest artist. On day three, I will present the second row and day four will provide card ideas with those techniques. This will continue through the class days. I will then end the class with alternative canvas designs and cards using sketches and elements from the canvases. So, you will be have reason to check out the class every day for videos!
Thank you to everyone who has signed up already!
Have a good one.
