Artfreckles News




My designer stint with Artfreckles.com was a 4 month gig, but the other day, Shannon asked me to stay on as a designer! Yay!
Here are a few things I made with the Storybook 2 kit for July.
I stamped the 'for you' with Gold Lame Smooch.
I cut the scallop heart out with a Sizzix die, the 5 is a SU chipboard shape.
It's hard to see in the photo but the black background is Coredinations paper, I cut a snowflake out of acrylic and put it under the black paper and then sanded the top to expose the snowflake shape.



This box was headed for recycling, it's a cigar box from Cosmo Cricket and it came filled with chipboard. I made little walls and tags to fill it.

The kit came with a 'mushroom' die cut and I altered it to become a tree.



I saw this and had to make one. I'll probably never use it, but it's so cute anyways!



It's for card sketches.
And this is probably the best picture I got last night while trying to do my Photographers' Workshop assignment. I needed to shot a fast moving subject and practice switching speeds. We don't have any 'fast' moving subjects. We have slow and slower, and lazy. I got to shoot 2 out of 3 of those, I am going to make Lazy go out today and maybe ride her scooter. I do like that Kerry is in the background, all blurry, that's my favourite thing, and I like that Linus is pretty sharp and I don't hate the pool in the background, because that's our yard, I just wish it was not there.

Yesterday I would have loved to send the brat away! Today he is all about redeeming himself! But he isn't very good at outside chores, and from the looks of things he needs yet another lesson in vacuuming!
