Thinking Inking

Jennifer Mcguire is one of the amazing artists and generous educators throughout the web who share their talents, making the internet an indispensible, affordable art education resource.  Through June & July, Jennifer shared her talent at Two Peas in a Bucket, one of my favorite paper-arts communities, teaching a free online class Thinking Inking.  Aaaand, since the class was FREE (I do love free), I played right along, hoping to win one of the prize packages generously donated by Hero Arts and Ranger.  As it turned out, no winnings came my way :o(, but I dabbled in new techniques, played around with new media, used old media in new ways, and had a good ol’ time creating.   

This is one of two thank you cards that I made for my mother and mother-in-law whose generous holiday gifts allowed me to take Stacy Julian's "Library of Memories" class at Big Picture Scrapbooking. In the next couple of days (I hope), I’ll post another card and a few “future card” pieces that I made in Jennifer’s class.

I thought it turned out quite nice—pretty, delicate, and feminine.  I just love that lollipop flower.  I also made matching custom envelopes as well, but of course, I forgot to take a photo of those :o(.
Well, that’s it for my first “real” post.  It took me forever, but that won’t surprise anyone who knows me.  I’ll keep at it, though, and like most things in my life, I’ll probably get better with age.  Gotta love being Vintage!
