It’s time to jump back and create the iconic post of “what I colored at boot camp” and show off all the things I did. These, of course, were all done using Copic markers. Jennifer’s Boot Camp is amazing and great friends too – shout out to everyone I was sitting next to during the camp and at lunch day after day: Kellie, Karen F, Wendy, Cathy T, Therese, Meenu, Taya, Cathy R, Janice W, Nan, Ginger, Charlene, Mags and Luigi. Thank you to all the helpers and it was so much fun getting to know you all: Patty, Cassandra, Ellie and Becky. Also thank you to all the sponsors. Thank you Jennifer for everything.
I think this is my favorite chipboard embellishment quote… and I always start whistling the tune to Life of Brian too! LOL This is Bright Side of Life chipboard quote from Make it Crafty and I loved how Anja did her project which is one of the store samples. I didn’t quite have all the same materials but I was able to improvise. Her’s looks amazing, by the way!
“If life seems jolly rotten, There’s something you’ve forgotten, And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing. When you’re feeling in the dumps, Don’t be silly chumps. Just purse your lips and whistle. That’s the thing.” – Always Look on the Bight Side of Life from Life of Brian.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! For this project, I’ve used Stackers Reindeer by Art Impressions and in the background is Little Village by Make it Crafty (with some Chipboard Embellishments too). I stamped the reindeer and then used a mask to stamp the background. While the mask was still there, I used Distress Inks to do the background, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch. The sentiment was covered with Liquid Pearls.
Welcome to Day 18 of my Advent! Today I don’t have a holiday card but instead a birthday card. It’s another chipboard embellishment projects that I made using Happy Birthday to You from Make it Crafty. I used the same layout that Zoe did for the Somewhere Over the Rainbow chipboard sentiment.
For the background, instead of watercolor, I thought I’d try Copic refill ink. After about 20 drops, I realized it was using as much ink as refilling a marker. Oops! So I did some splatter then called it good. Next time I’ll try something different.
My my project today, I’m using Shoot for the Moon chipboard embellishments from Make it Crafty. I attempted to do some water coloring on the background with my Spectrum Aqua markers. However, the paper beaded up so badly that I don’t think it turned out well. But I used my fingers and some water to smooth it out and salvage what I could. Then the chipboard was painted and placed on top – it didn’t turn out so bad. This is in the same style as the store samples for this product.
Many of you have seen this already but now here’s all the details plus a ton of pictures. This image was inspired by the coloring challenge with Zoe and Jennifer to color a snow globe. Other than using markers, pencils and white, the challenge was open but the idea was to study the way items reflect in the globe. I decided to go with a mason jar instead of a traditional globe but the challenge was still there. Here’s the end result…
The last step is to make a card, of course. I kept it simple since the Balsa wood canvas was already very large and I didn’t want the card to be gigantic. Hope you like it and feel free to ask me any questions.
