Hi all Erin here. Here is my complete letter journal for the swap. Here I created the front and back covers with lots of stamps, mists, paints, and texture!!
had fun with this cover and played with the color yellow and a splatter
and paint drip technique with straws. It is fun to get messy with
paints!! Here is my video on how I created the front cover and back
covers, plus how I finished off the binding.
Here are some up close pictures of the book. For all that background texture I used the Writing Backgrounds stamps. Love those!!!
I just love how the paints drip down from the word "ART".
Now I just need to wait for my book to make the rounds to the other 4 ladies before coming back to me!! Stay tuned for more!!
Hi all Erin here with some fun and easy card for a Christmas card swap I am doing this year. Check it out!
the cards have the same items on them except for the brad, that changed
color and shape as the Eyelet Outlet pack was a variety pack of 12, so I
still have 2 left!! Working with a variety of 12x12 sheets of paper
and cutting them up for layers is an easy way to use up what you have
instead of having to go out and buy a ton of one paper pattern. Here is
my video tutorial on how to make these fun cards.
Hi all, Erin here. Art can be therapy, and this is what these ATCs are all about for me. Not only for a friend who has had a loss, but also to still help me heal from the loss of my daughter. This is why I craft everyday, to help heal.
the backs of each of the cards is the poem that was read at my daughter
funeral, a very common poem meant for parents at the loss of a child.
is my full video tutorial, but I will warn you, I get a bit emotional
on this one. This whole process brought back so many emotions even
after almost 8 years. I will always miss my little Kristen, and moments
like these really bring my feelings right back to the day she got her
love and hugs go out to all that have had a loss.
