Just a quick post to share the card I am dropping in the mail tomorrow for my hubby.
Used frisket to outline the heart, distress markers as watercolor "paints" and enable the resist, white embossing powder to bring forward the word Love using a stamp from Impress.
Fun and quick to create once the frisket dried.
If you haven't used frisket, it is the consistency of rubber cement and used to mask off the areas not wanting the paint. For this card I only applied the frisket to the outside diameter of the heart, not the whole card because I was able to keep the paint within the lines, just didn't want it to bleed through on the rest of the card.
Can you believe it is February of 2015....what happened to 2014?
A brief catch up with me, I have relocated to the Seattle for a few years.
The kids have graduated college and I guess you can say I graduated to another state.
Living away from Hubby, kids, dogs and the sun is very different.
Buying a home to live in by myself is ALOT different, exciting, different, adventurous, different....
I have now been here for 7 months with over two months time I have been able to be in Cali with family and friends. In August for my sweet mother-in-laws funeral, then again in November for my best friend's. Saddened occasions occurred last year, events that I am still learning how to cope with.
I have been shown how precious life and love is and that no one can ever take it for granted.
I am attempting to accomplish many things this year...
1) Learn the things I have taken for granted that hubby will always do...cooking and house painting
2) Learn to draw faces...something my mother can do with her eyes closed
3) Meet new people...something that being in a family unit always came easy
4) Reach out and VOLUNTEER my time and talents...possibly a way to accomplish #3
5) Become a better listener
So follow me as I document my accomplishments this year and venture out into the brave new world without my best friend by my side but rather watching and directing my every move from Heaven.
Busy weekend creating a Disney Album using pictures from 1986 to 1997.
What fun to use another person's Layouts. Check out Melinda Baggenstos (from Scrapbook Nook in Kent Washington) her LOs are worth a try. Makes the page come together like a breeze and adds consistency with your album.
Being gone from Southern California for four months was easy and hard. Being away from everything
is taxing and exciting at the same time. I was on a two month which turned into a four month relocation assignment in the beautiful town of Mukilteo, Washington. I had an apartment, my craft supplies, a challenging assignment, and a great support system at home. What I learned about myself is that I enjoy my day to day life in So. Cal. Not to say that Mukilteo isn't a great place to venture out into, the sights are unbelievable, but being there without my husband and family makes the days seem to drag and nights even longer. I found a few craft stores, met a few friends, and experienced the area and I am glad to be home, ready to spend the summer with my kids home from College and plan out my next design team applications.
