Remember: You MUST use a Power Poppy image somewhere on your design to be included in the Glassy-Eyed challenge. Entries close on July 16th at NOON.
After setting the cut-out decorative paper over top. I knew that I needed to cut out portions so that the flowers I wanted to accentuate were right where I wanted them! I traced a pencil lightly around the circle and then cut out the images.
Hello, my flower-loving friends! I hope you are enjoying the return of Inspire Me Monday! If you have yet to play in the monthly Blossom Challenge, there is still time to join the May challenge, "April Showers Bring May Flowers"! The challenge closes at NOON on June 17th. See all the details HERE.Today is my turn to share the weekly inspiration. I wanted to inspire you to think outside the box...the paper box that is! If you are part of any coloring or card making groups on social media, then you know that one of the most asked questions is, "What is the PERFECT paper to use for my coloring?" That is not an easy question to answer because the true answer is, it depends. It depends on what you wish to accomplish, what your coloring medium is, what stamps you are using, what your skill level is, and more. The truth is, there is NO perfect paper that fits every artist or every need.
I ended up double-matting the piece as a picture suitable for framing rather than turning it into a card. I could have added a sentiment and created a card out of it just as easily.
Hello friends! It's time for Inspire Me Monday once again and this time it's me, Lisa Johansen, bringing everyone some inspiration!
This week I decided to feature the Spotlight Technique. Like many others my life is a blur...I work full time, I am a volunteer firefighter for my town, I'm on the board for a local bird rehab center plus I sneak in time with my family and friends, gardening, crafting, workouts, photography etc. Some days I really want to get creative but have a small window of opportunity to do so. This is where we bring in the spotlight technique!
This technique is very simple....choose the image you would like to use and either stamp or print the image twice.
HEY FRIENDS! Inspire Me Monday is back and so am I with a new Copic coloring video. Since we have a new monthly challenge, I decided to feature one of the Spring themed digital image sets currently discounted so that you can play along with the challenge. Check out Christine's post for the challenge details as well as the 4-1-1 on the discounted stamp sets.
For this week's inspiration, I decided to feature the Spring Meadow Bouquet digital stamp set which has always been one of my favorites.
It's been a while since I featured a digital stamp, so I decided to start today's video with a quick refresher to help get you started. I have a fuller tutorial on my channel, but for this video, I'll just give you the shorter version.
So with no further ado - here's the video!If the video isn’t visible below, click HERE to view it. Enjoy!
