Well, I've really been in a creative mood lately. I've gotten several pages done, but I really need to start working on Christmas cards and gifts. Nonetheless, here's my latest jack:
I pulled out my paints and inks, and got messy on this one. I even played around with liquid acrylics. I bought these a couple of years ago, and then never touched them until now. Boy, was I missing out!!! These things ROCK! They are blingy, pearlescent acrylic paints that are liquified to about the consistency of water. They add a little bit of sheer shine. But, I used my paint brush to splatter them all over the background paper. It matched perfectly with the Hambly graph paper. I will definitely be playing with these a lot more. And, I think that I might need some more colors! LOL. Hmmmm...
Then, I had challenged myself to make a LO using a magazine page design as my jumping-off point. I adore Blueprint magazine. It is so inspiring! And, I love the way that their pages are designed:
And, here's my take on it:
Well, I have big creative plans for the rest of the week. But, I don't know that I will be able to post a lot of the work here. Most of the projects will be Christmas presents. And, it wouldn't be any fun if you all knew what you were getting beforehand, now would it?
Tina came over tonight for some scrap time. I love having her around, and being so close again. She's like the sister I never had, and she is such a creative, inspirational soul. I am already getting sad about going back to North Carolina and leaving her behind. But, I do have 3 1/2 more months...we'll make the best of it!
