Share the behind my scene cards

Hello Everyone,

First I want to start by saying;  This journey of mine is not going to be one that merely consists of promoting or selling of products.  This is of course a large part of what I believe makes my journey more enjoyable and even inspiring!   However, I too learn with every mistake, color choice, technique and design!  I am a firm believer that the day I stop learning and/or have the desire to learn and share is the day I will stop blogging and sharing all together!   So I have decided to try to share some behind scenes in my artistic journey with you too!  Yes I take loads of classes and have tons of projects that you never get to see . .  but that stops today.

I create my projects with the skills that I learn from inspiration, getting a really inky, and instructed classes.  Yes, sometimes these projects are not perfect or without flaw, but I don't attend courses or classes to come out with a perfect card!  I go to learn something new, take in what other artists have to share and walk away with real pride in having made sure that I did this increase my knowledge and be more informative with the different products I use. . .because I cared enough about my craft to get the knowledge!

So. . . I have decided to share with you some of the projects that have come out of my classes with Angie Hunt,  or ScrapGirl, as you may know her.  Her class has taught me so many different things, I can't begin to express my gratitude but I can show you what I've learned.  Such opportunities are rare and I consider myself very lucky for them.

One other thing,  I will not have the usual amount of detailed information from them as I would normally but if you are truly interested in the ingredients of a particular project, Angie's original post of each card is available for reference as well and I will "try" to link to them for you.  I hope this inspires you to keep your journey especially yours and share "ALL" of the things that enrich it for you even if they aren't picture perfect!

Disclosure:   This entire project, paper, stamped image, embellishments and design have been created by Angie Hunt for the purpose of sharing technique and methods in her monthly card class.  The only addition which I contributed to her design is the actual coloring of this image.  


Magnolia Image and Raindrop Echo Design Sentiment, Copic markers
I'm not sure if this was my very first project in this class, but it was really early for sure!  In this project I learned:  The application of measurements for a symmetrical card, the flicking of grass from under the feet into and over the feet and also, I had never flicked the B0000 series of copics from the image line to the outer frame of an image.  Thank you Angie for allowing me to learn from you, you're such a talented artist and I love visiting and socializing with you and the rest of the lovely ladies.
Turns out it was posted in March 2011 by Angie here
This type of post really lets me play with the photobucket's new graphics editor toys too!  I feel like I never get a chance to do that!  Busy Busy Busy, Always learning something!


INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Make and keep your journey your own!
