Studio Reflection: Week 2

Week two looked like this:

My clean desk didn't stay that way long.


I created some fun Thank You cards.


There was a custom order created with a bit of no-line water coloring.


There was a second custom order created with some hand coloring.


Who doesn't love some cat and do thank yous any way?


I started fussy cutting some of the images I colored while we were on vacation.


I paired these up to create some super cute Birthday cards, coming soon to the shop!

Studio Reflection: Week 1

New Year, New Format.

For the last week of 2018 and the first week of 2019, we were in Hawaii.  We've been home a little over a week.

This year I've got new goals and plans for this space.  The blog will be going to weekly, with an occasional bi-weekly post and I'll also be writing posts in a new format.  The new format will include more behind the scenes pics along with a weekly wrap up of cards made.  You'll find clickable title links for those cards that are available in my shop for purchase.  You'll also find affiliate links for products I'm loving and using at the bottom of the posts.

Week 1 Looked like this:

Copic coloring while sitting on our third-floor lanai.


I also did quite a bit of stitching while sitting in the warm tropical air.


I rediscovered my love for Inktense pencils and enjoyed some time coloring by the ocean.


I started a new journal for my one little word this year - Inspired.


I even worked on a bit of art.


I didn't complete any cards, but Week Two will be posted later this week to get us caught up and that post includes cards.

Distress Ink Blending - Sending Comfort


I made these back in October of 2018 and never had time to get them posted on the blog.  If you've followed my blog for any length of time you know that ink blending with stencils is one of my favorite go-to techniques.  These are the result of the fabulous technique of masking and stenciling.  The heart is masked before the ink blending is done with the stencil, then the stencil is removed and ink is blended over top to intensify the colors of the polka dots.

Techniques Used:

Ink Blending, Stenciling, Masking & Stamping

Other Products Used:

Echo Park Polka Dot #2 (Retired)
