Four down two to go! I am on a roll. Here is a sneak peek of the flavour of my card classes this month! I decided to explore card designs using a style based on the way many Art Journalists work.
First create a background to work on. Time to play with paints and inks and sprays and stamps and oh what a happy mess! This card uses acrylic paint, kitchen roll and sandpaper to get this beachy distressed look. Second step is to find a quote I want to design the card around. I kept in mind two things - we always want designs for the boys and the fact that this weekend is time to celebrate a very special boy in everyones lives, their Dad! And third following the beachy theme I looked for some images that I could cut out and make part of the card design - love the cute VW!... and last but definitely not least the doodling that makes all these things into a coherent design (well I hope it does anyway :-))
So in a nutshell I employed these steps for all my card designs this month. So I hope to give my class another way to design a card that they perhaps might not have tried before. I wonder what creative path I will walk down next month!
I have a couple of tutorials in the pipeline but you will have to pop back later for those!
I just nipped out in the garden for some fresh air before embarking on card design number 5 and I very quickly nipped back in again! It is really cold out there and drizzling with rain - anyone seen Summer anywhere?
Here are a couple of photos I took that I thought I would share with you.
I was admiring this velvety ......petunia - I think that's what it is called! Then I wondered what the hairs where that had stuck to the flower. I looked down and here's what I saw looking back at me like butter wouldn't melt!
Feeling how cold it is today I bet Comet is wondering why he started shedding his summer coat! What a cutie pie. We are back in the warm now and it is time to crack on. Don't forget to leave me a comment to join in my Blog Canday Giveaway - click on the link - Remember you gotta be in it to win it!
