Doodled Putter

here is another "fun in the sun" card from my next class. the patterned paper is the opposite side of the SEI paper that i used on saturday's card.
i like the way the green looks with the dark gray, it is just a little change from the yellow/gray combos that i have been seeing lately.
we will also be doing freestyle doodling. i got this idea from a paper crafting magazine, they also used the white gel pen for the little circles. and i love it on dark paper.

Beach Bag & Tennis

this is another card for the next class at Serendipity. it has another new SEI paper, called Bridgeport: tennis court. it is doublesided, and textured on one side. i used the striped side for the paper piecing on the beach bag. and used the koh-i-noor pencils and blending medium again to color.
on a side note, i have been trying to improve my photography of my projects, using this link. i think this upload shows improvement. thanks for bearing with me.

Waterlilies & Koi

i was so excited to get my new stamp set from Flourishes. here is the first card. i used PTI white paper, and my aqua pen with a variety of inks to make it look watercolored. i also masked the waterlily pads to make them look layered. then used a nestability with a rubber mat to add a little extra framing.

Next Generation Tote

this is my latest tote, it is small, more like a purse.
it has 3 pockets on the outside, and no pockets on the inside. i put a few things in the pockets so you can see the size. (sunglasses, hi-liter, lotion)

this one is a lot cheaper to make, because it uses regular cotton, not decorator weight fabric, like my others. and does not take as long to make. i like that part.
