Perfectly Perfect…

More homework for the Altenew Academy One=Layer Wonders class.

I absolutely love the Crown Blooms set from Altenew and Kelly Latevola used it for this particular lesson.  So this is a total case of how she layed out the blooms.  Thanks, Kelly 🙂

But from there, I took a hard left and went out on my own.  Totally did my own thing…mixed media.  I used pretty much everything but the kitchen sink on this.  But in the end…I’m happy with it….this feels like me.

Back soon with more my sweet friends….

Hello My Sweet Friend

July13hello

Totally different style of card for me today.  That’s because it’s another card for my Altenew One-Layer Wonders class.

I am totally not a precise stamper not do I always colour inside the lines…LOL.  So something graphic like this isn’t necessarily something I gravitate towards.  But, it’s part of the class, and I’ve learned something new.  That’s the whole point of taking classes…to learn, to have fun and to play…

As always I’m not sharing any details of the class.  Altenew and Kelly Latevola deserve that!

Hello Homework

Bit by bit, I’m working my way through my Altenew Academy One-Layer Wonders class.  Here’s another card for my homework.

Kelly Latevola has some amazing ideas and techniques to share in this class.  Well worth your time and money for sure!

As always, I respect the company providing the classes and don’t share details.  I hope you’ll understand.

EDB3E6A4-4D4E-4F4A-9B42-FB13B7340F36Playing with some new toys today.  When I did my great craft room purge I sold all my Copics!  Yes, every last one of them. I just wasn’t using them and that was my criteria for purging. If it’s not being used…it gets sold.

I wanted to try a new alcohol marker…not have every colour…just a few for highlighting and shading. The Nuvo alcohol markers are very economical and I found them to blend well. I also like the feel of the barrel in my hand…very comfy.

Back to the card. I stamped the Cosmos Background in black and coloured it with the Nuvo markers..just pretty neutral colours. Next came the shine. I added Nuvo Glitter Drops to the centres. I also added some Deco Foil randomly for more bling. The sparkle is amazing. I find taking photos of shiny stuff so difficult. My picture just doesn’t do the card justice unfortunately.  Here’s a close up of some of the shimmer.
