Tuesday Live Ustream Show

6
After being away on holidays for a couple of weeks, it was sure great getting back to my Ustream shows and chatting with all you amazing crafters and friends!
I have been creating like crazy lately and trying out a bunch of new techniques so I was just itching to share some with you last night.  A fellow Artist and friend Tracy Weinzapel puts on Monthly dares on her Blog and Ustream show and I really wanted to participate this month so I dedicated my show last night to her dare.

Here is the Creative Dare:

Here is my creative Dare for you for August:
  1. Create a project featuring a photo/portrait of YOU!
  2. Journal or use words to describe who you are TODAY!
  3. Incoporate your own handwriting in your piece

Here is the art Journal page I created last night on the show.


Bold isn't it!!! I've never stuck to just a couple colors! it was sure fun to create!


Prima Flowers and The Crafter's Workshop Templates make a fabulous combination


I love the Way the wooden butterflies took Cooped up Notes stamp by Unity Stamp Co so well!

Ustream was being a little annoying last night and I was not able to record my show so I will be doing my Friday Mixed Media Tutorial on how I created this page.

Here are all the products I used on this page:

Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabios - Toto's Tornado Black
Ranger Patina Metal paint - Jade
Ranger Patina Metal Paint - Verdigris
Studio Calico - Wood Veneer Butterflies
