Hi everyone! This is another prescheduled post as I'm assuming I will be quite tired after arriving home last night that I won't be up for creating a blog post, lol. But I'm sure I will be updating you shortly with news about my CHA trip and photos too!
Today I'm sharing with you one of my projects for Blue Fern Studios. I created 3 projects for them this month and will be sharing them over the course of the next week. The end of the month is always my busiest time- so beware...lots of work to be shared in the coming days!
The one I am showing you today is a project of a different kind. When setting about creating this, I only wanted to do something "different". Meaning, I didn't want to do a layout, card, or tag...I really wasn't sure what I wanted to do...just something different. I have a shelf where I keep things like blank chipboard albums or other mini albums waiting to be created, alterable stuff...things like that. As I'm going through the shelf, nothing is appealing to me. I wanted to do something artsy...but I'd done several canvases over the week before and just didn't feel like doing another canvas.
BUT, I did want to do something that had texture like a canvas. And that is how I settled on creating something with sandpaper.
Yeah, weird I know! But I thought...hmm, I wonder how this will take? So I set about my project like this...I have a step-by-step for you if you'd like to play along ;)
"Pretty Creative Girl This Afternoon"
I love this photo of my daughter that I took recently. She spent nearly an hour painting and she was just the CUTEST little thing! So serious at times, dipping her brush in the water and then mixing it in with the paint...making a mess, experimenting. Way too cute. I guess we both felt like being a little creative lately ;)
