There is still time to enter the giveaway here!!
Well we are nearing the end of the month and I am just finally cutting into my June kit. An unusual pattern for me, as I usually have the entire thing scrapped within a few days.
Here is the Lovely Lady out on a walk. The idea for this LO came from Susan. She gave me the "Gutsy Lady" circular embellishment and the little "gutsy" tag. She suggested documenting how Lady is no longer the timid dog she was when we first adopted her. We figured a photo of her out on her walk was the perfect example of her "embracing bravery every day". The days of her jumping in fear at the sound of a car passing, are long behind her. This week she has learned the wonderment of laying on a shady area of grass after a long summer's day walk. It gives me joy to see her so happy and living the life that all dogs should experience.
I used this week's sketch from Shimelle.
I love her linear style. She posts videos showing how she scraps each sketch. I am in awe at how easily she scraps! Things just come together so quickly and with such ease. I wish my scrapping experience was more relaxed. I think that sometimes I spend too long on LO's. Details are great, but sometimes it is fun to do a LO with a more minimal appeal and just enjoy creating it! Shimelle's technique in splattering and painting on her LO's encouraged me to be a "gutsy lady" and try splattering glimmer mist on my LO. I did make a rookie mistake and forgot to cover up my photo. After noticing three tiny dots of mist on my photo, I wished I had slowed down and thought the process out. I repaired the mistake by scraping off the spots with my piercer and then shading in the spots with my Prismacolor pencil crayons. Never underestimate the usefulness of a good set of pencil crayons. Problem solved. :)
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
