Another great day of “Art” – I’ve only managed one card today which seems to be the norm for the “implement the techniques you learned the day before” days. On this card, I’ve distressed everything I could get my hands on (including the flowers prior to rolling them and the ribbon) - I've probably used all the techniques learned yesterday! I didn’t have the picket fence Distress stain – so made do with the snow cap Acrylic Paint Dabber, used sparingly. I over spritzed what was to be a pink rose several attempts in a row, so in the end I just grabbed the Prima pebble with a pink rose on it. Do I have any advice? - Let the trimming dry completely prior to putting on card – while I have some cool Broken China castoff on my card – it wasn’t planned, if you get my drift.
Plus, during this past week, I had to come up with ideas and the card kits for my favorite Creative Memories consultant (http://www.mycmsite.com/sites/shelley). Each year, she hosts two major crops – National Scrapbook Day, and Croptoberfest. She always gives out goodie bags for each attendee, and for the past two years (at least), she has included a card kit that I create. So this year, all attendees will be able to make a waterfall card and two monster boxes, all made from this year’s new CM colors.
