Snowy Fun


I did this for a swap that's due soon, but not really soon enough for anyone to use for Christmas. Thus, the "Missing You" sentiment.

I'm probably going to make more of these for some of my Christmas cards...using a Christmas greeting instead.

Several people are coming over next weekend to make cards. This is probably one that we'll do. I think they'd really like the technique that was used on the background.

The background is made with the an embossing folder - embossing wax paper instead of paper to create a design. Then the wax paper is ironed onto the paper to create a resist when inked with a brayer. Cool, eh? The technique was the basis for the swap. I hadn't really done this technique before, so it was fun.

Now...to come up with about 5 more designs that can be done quickly. Gotta get my greeting cards in the mail ... soon!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
