Fabulous You

I have a brand new #TexturalTuesdays card that I’ve aptly named “Fabulous You” for the CLASSroom today.  Plenty of beautiful shine and subtle texture on this one today. I’ve really been enjoying using my colored pencils and may have to upgrade. Hahha!!

Here is today’s sneak peek:

Kind of a BIG peek!

The words are from Julie Ebersole’s beautiful die set Totally Fabulous and I created the word “You” from the Basic Alpha Set, to create “Fabulous You”. I thought that would be kind of fun and just a tiny bit different.

This card has two different colors of foil and patterned papers from three different companies. Stitched dies, embossing on patterned paper, inking…and all kinds of fun stuff!! If you want to see how I made it? I do have a tutorial (a wordy one) over on the CLASSroom blog today with lots of pics. ;) And I’d love it if you checked it out.

Hoping that YOU have a fabulous day!

Pearly Canvas

Hi everyone! I’m back from CHA and I have a cool Pearly Canvas up on The CLASSroom blog today for #TexturalTuesdays. I’ve been enjoying the look of metal, buttons, gears, and doo-dads on canvases for quite some time, but I’ve just not known quite how to pull it all together.

While I was at CHA, I was fortunate enough to be able to watch the fabulous Finnabair in action and I got a few tips and tricks from how she creates her stunning pieces of art. After spending some time watching her, I at least felt that I had enough info to do a beginner’s canvas of my own. ;)

I sincerely loved making my Pearly Love canvas (even though it’s on un-cradled hardboard). It was such a learning process for me and I love learning from MYSELF, don’t you? I’m really going to have to dig through all of my embellishments to see what I have to use that I can stick down and make pearly!!

To see the full tutorial and step-by-step photos of how I made this project, I urge you to go to The CLASSroom blog. Plus, there are so many beautiful micas on the market now to play with, too! I’ve been privileged to use some beautiful new pigment powders from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® that are just STUNNING!

I hope that you like this piece…I’ll be looking forward to your feedback! Have a tremendous Tuesday!
