Having Tons of Fun!
Rogue Redhead Designs stamps!!!! Here's the page above... the actual piece is much more vibrantly colored in real life - maybe they wanted the whole page to harmonize, so they lightened it. Hmmmm..... Ah well, I'll take it! Thanks to Shar for making such awesome stamps!
In other fun-ness.... I am taking Teresa McFayden's Paint, Paper, Paste E-Workshop. WHAT. A. BLAST! Her style is shabby chic, colorful, vintage, gorgeous - love it! I have been a bit of a scaredy-cat when it comes to really getting down and dirty with collage - afraid I'd end up with a mess and a bunch of supplies wasted. Teresa guides you through some great collage techniques with a combination of stepped out tutorials and videos. Her first video was how to layer a collage sheet with patterned tissue, papers, paints, stamps, stencils, rub-ons, etc. She did her first one with a very neutral palette - right up my street - so I did mine with ochres, pinks, grays, and creams. You can see the result below (well, about half of the result.... as much as my scanner would fit). I've cut out two journal covers (YES! I cut into it!!!! Are you proud of me, LOL????), and I have some left over for something else.....
I'll keep you posted on the projects I create. :)
