Gracious Glimpses July 2011
Today I am showing my sneak peek of the July Design Team Delight Gallery for CPC themed Retro/Vintage. Our dear Jan has come up with the new and improved title of Gracious Glimpses....has a nicer ring I think. Since this is not my usual genre, I began scouring the internet looking for digital images that would fit the bill. I didn't want to invest in new stamps and I wanted to incorporate my simple style. I came across this sweet little girl and couldn't resist her! She sort of looks like the Morton Salt Girl to me. At any rate, I broke out my Copics and Prisma pencils and am really happy with the result. It's a good thing too because I was recently busted out in front of my dh about the price per marker on these....and I have a bucket full! It was really good timing to show him just how well they colored ;-D. I hope to take a class next month so that I can start getting more mileage out of them...shading & light placement etc has never been a strong suit for me, so I am looking forward to that. The rest of the design team has put together a range of super fun to elegant cards and will be showcasing them all week, so stop over to the creative blog to check out those glimpses too!
