Hey Crafty Friends!
Today, I am feeling a bit unsettled. Bittersweet to be done will all my course work for my Journey to Certification with Altenew. I have loved learning and doing the classes. I will miss the structure. But, I am so excited to be done so I can focus on where I will go from here. What style of design do I want to focus on the most and to be known for? I am a bit uneasy showing this one- because I am not gonna lie, its WAS WAY out of my comfort zone. I LOVED making the backgrounds but struggled with designing cards. I threw 4 away that will never be seen. I want to revisit this technique more- but need the right products to pull it off. For me, I need large word stamps and dies! As you know, I am a focal point, clean and simple white space designer so this looks cra cra to me. Smiles.
But..... I must admit I freakin' LOVE it. It needs to be framed. It's not just a card, its a piece of amazing artwork if I do say so myself.
So, lets dive into the how, did you make that Miss Christine?
Stamps: Altenew Dearest Friend
Ink: Altenew Jet Black and Embossing
Cardstock/Paper: Nupo | Neenah Solar White | Arches Hot Press Watercolor | Grey and Black (I used my stash)
Other: Altenew Artist Markers and Refills | Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks | Clear Embossing Powder | Nuvo Sequins |Sparkle Silk ( I used mine from Fun Stampers Journey)
How did you Make that Christine?
Well folks, this is my last project for my coursework. But it does not end here! I will also be completing the final coursework with a mock workshop with my friends to hold the title of FULLY certified with Altenew. I don't know where this will lead me, I hope it opens up many opportunities to teach and design. I have found my forever home with Altenew. I love the company inside and out. Erum, Virginia and Nicole, THANK you for being my support of cheerleaders, thank you for the encouragement along the way and believing in me. I've learn a lot and I have grown a better artist. A HUGE thank you to all the instructors as well.
Until next time!
I love to inspire others to make pretty things!
