New YouTube Channel

I’ve decided to open a YouTube channel in addition to my blog and Instagram platforms.  In my very first video I show how to use modeling paste, I talk about some new Crafter’s Workshop products and give a tutorial on a stencil technique I developed using left over, or as I like to call it – craft overs, modeling paste and sprays.  You can find the Crafter’s Workshop products at Bluemoon Scrapbooking.

Please check out the video to see how I made the card shown below on my brand new YouTube channel.

I hope you like this video.  If you do (or even if you believe I will get better – lol), then please subscribe to my YouTube channel to get notified of new videos.

Face-Inspire-Final

Inspired By Face

Today I am sharing a 5” x 5” journal page. This is the gal I drew for the epic throw down with the Fab Kim Dellow (a couple of weeks ago) until I realized our challenge was for 2” or smaller.  So this is the spare that didn’t get used back then.  I left the hair uncolored in order to focus the attention on the face.

Time To Change

Today I am sharing another 2” x 2” journal page. The one you see directly below I posted up on Instagram last week and some how Kim Dellow and I got on to a casual epic chat about how small could we make a face. I thought we said let’s see how small you could go, so when I drew her the 1st time she was about 4” tall. I missed the fact till I read on Show Your Face Friday (Kim’s uber cool challenge yourself to draw faces blog post) that I had committed to a face no larger than 2” tall EEEEEEEEK. Continue reading
