OCC- Day One Homework

Homework from Online Card Classes Watercolor for Cardmakers Intermediate Techniques: Day One: Brush Techniques & Washes. I learned much about paper and damp vs wet workable properties. I also trapped graphite. :/ But I will work with it. I didn't have a pear or apple or easily repeatable shape so I just sketched them. They are a delicious cross between gourds, pears, and avocados. I also mixed colors all over. I only have three colors of tube watercolor. I really had no idea how to keep on using the pigment loaded brush until the tonal exercise. Super great class!

Finally done with Disney Album!

In Progress:

Cover and guts. Painted with acrylic paints, decorated with washi tape and embroidered stickers. Also a polka dot stencil used on cover. This is actually a Christmas album but I covered the cute Christmas words on spine with paint because I needed a larger binder depth. Totally worked to hold all those pics and ephemera. I did actually use the fuse to seal in loose smashed pennies and keep the photos in when I flipped the layout.

Cards for Demo Day at PhotoScraps

On every 2nd Saturday of the month, my local scrapbook store has a demo day. You pay $2 a ticket and a ticket buys you a project. It's all cut and ready to go for you. Sometimes I am lucky enough to participate as an instructor/designer.

Here are two cards that were offered in January:

Had big plans to decorate each pint container. But I have to say after the baking, I was a little tuckered out.

  • Peanut Brittle
  • Orange Date Pockets
  • Caramels
  • Monster Cookies
  • Baklava
Next year going with US Post Office and larger portions.

Some of the Christmas Cards

I was very good at making Christmas Cards, but I was terrible at taking pictures. I am going to do card a day for the whole month of July again and I will do better. Here are some from 2015 Christmas:
