Sand Dollar Card 2017

Hand delivery only 
I'm a bubble thinker, meaning I solve problems by putting together different ideas. Most people in the creative process are like this. I had a box full of sand dollars I collected years ago on a crafting retreat at the beach. I walked along the beach for hours picking up sand dollars. I thought I would make a wreath at some point. Well fast forward to today and I turned them into a card for my card making group the "Cornflakes" after seeing this definition of thalassophile on Pinterest. All the bubbles came together and made a card that is truly in my style - clean and simple.

Monoprinting Sample Card 2017

Getting ready for my Faux mono-printing workshop at FabMo on July 16, 2017.
YouTube is a wonderful thing! I've been working with twinkling H2O water colors for years and never knew there were other ways to work with them. I mainly make backgrounds, but I gave this mono-printing technique a try and surprisingly it turned out pretty well. The demo person said she could get 30 prints out of one round of painting on the stamp but I was only able to get 10, which still isn't bad.
