redwhiteandblueI don’t know what’s wrong with me.  Every time I sit down to scrap I find myself blocked.  Sure I can throw together a basic layout but when it comes to adding pizzazz, I just fall back on my old standbys.  So, in order to try to break through the creative block I am going to go back to some old techniques and try to make them new again.  In this layout I created a mask of a star and sponge painted around it.  I also tore the photos to help avoid the same old same old.  For the spots on the background I ran a stamp roller through the paint.  Now that I look at it closely it kinda looks like blood.  Oh well, at least it’s a different technique.



dressedupFor this one I revisited the old technique of cutting our pictures in silhouette.  This technique got old back in the day but I love how it looks here.  I also aged the star paper by wetting and rolling it a little at the top.  I pulled out my dusty cricut to cut the stars.


Here are the two projects I’m working on for school.  the first is for my design class .  We had to draw and paint three portraits using color to express emotion.  We have to use three different color schemes, complementary, monochromatic and the entire color wheel.  I’m not quite done but you get the idea.img_3580

The secon project is for my drawing project.  We had to draw a hallway to learn one point perspective.  Once we learned the technique it was pretty easy.  Just tedious.  I still need to tweak this one a little also.


Finally got some scrapping done.  These are pictures from my daughter’s 2nd grade end of year laua.  I used some November Pagemaps sketches found here.  The inque stamps were specifically purchased with these pages in mind.
