Hey gorgeous peeps,
So today I have a card to share with you all. I was inspired by two blogs. Firstly Try Stampin’ on Tuesday and then Die Cut Divas. T.S.o.T. has a tic tac on Tuesdays. For this card I decided on black, heart and red. I really enjoyed the making of this card. I especially love the paper pieced heart. The Gorjuss girl is coloured in copics. Which I deliberately kept muted. I wanted to try new colours to me. Usually I go for bright and tend to have a lot of blues, greens and aqua tones. I tried to match her to some of the coloured hearts on the background. The stamped hearts and sentiment are from Hero Arts. I coloured the two small red hearts with my brand new watercolour pens. Which is also the theme from Die Cut Divas. The challenge is Do or Use Something New. I figure between using my new pens and trying new colours I have met the challenge.
So as you probably guessed my “Command Centre” has had a mini make over. The whiteboard/corkboard fell off the wall again. Partly because command hooks don’t like extremely hot days and the board was already broken. So I replaced it with the blackboard. I added magnets to the top so I could still keep my week at a glance page handy as well as my shopping list holder (which also got a make over). I’m slowly organising the office, which means I finally have just the right spot for that wooden trolley. It makes a great storage spot for folders and a temporary home for my ferals school supplies for the year. Next week those boxes wll be gone, so I am planning to put some nice baskets there for storage. I’m still deciding where to hang the ballerina painting my Mum made. I might see if the youngest feral would like it in her room.
The Gorjuss girl painting, I made using my new watercolour pens. Having very limited experience in watercolouring I feel that I did well. I painted the background first on water colour paper, then set it aside to dry. I stamped the image on another piece of paper and coloured her in using the pens. I fussy cut her out and glued her to the background. I stamped the birds directly onto the back ground and coloured them with the pens. I hand wrote the sentiment. I was so pleased with the way the picture turned out I had to hang it up straight away.
Well gorgeous peeps, thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a great week, hugs Paula.
