Scrapbook.com Haul

This isn’t the full haul. I was planning on splitting it into a few different ones but I’m finding that I don’t have a lot of time especially because it’s the holiday season. I’ve been doing NaNoWriMo and should be done here within the next few days. Then, I plan to work on December Daily.

Btw, my 21.5″ iMac died a couple of weeks ago. One afternoon, after a day at my daughter’s swim meet, I came home and turned on my computer and it wouldn’t turn on. Tried many times but it just wouldn’t turn on. A week later, I went and got a 27″ iMac. The screen is huge! I’m still trying to get used to it. The bad news is, with the new desktop, my Photoshop CS6 doesn’t work anymore. I contacted Adobe and they said CS6 is not compatible with Catalina (iOS). I cried a little. I’m still heart broken and have been having a very difficult time deciding if I want to get the CC. I am at 85%-ish in my decision to go forward with it. I’ve been researching other design/art software and just keep returning to Photoshop. It’s a hard decision. I’ll keep you all updated.

Anyway, enjoy this haul video.

Process Video: Mixed Media Scrapbook Page

Here is the video showing how I finished one of my layouts following Wilna Furstenberg’s mixed media scrapbooking course. This is only from when I used the gelatos to paint. I’ve already stenciled the paper and allowed it to dry before painting.

A Couple of Layouts

These are two layouts I finished yesterday. I also made a process video of the second layout and hope to share that soon. The journaling has always been the hardest part for me but when I flip through older layouts, I find that the journaling is what I’m drawn to.

Products used: Cut files by Wilna Furstenberg, ephemera by Prima, Faber-Castell Gelatos, Dr. Ph. Martin’s Hydrus Watercolors, stencils by Jane Davenport and Tim Holtz, Pentel Touch, Staedtler Pigment Pen, and Silhouette Portrait.

Finishing Up on Color Theory Class

The Color Theory class ended last week but I wasn’t able to finish my layouts so I’m working on them this week.  I’ve got two done and one more to go.  I haven’t had the chance to take photos of the completed ones but here are a few photos of what it looks like when I’m working on the layouts.

Die cuts from Wilna Furstenberg.  Cut them out with the Silhouette Portrait then stenciled them using gel matte medium with some white acrylic paint.  For the grayish colors behind the other cut outs, I used calligraphy ink by Parker, and added a little bit of water to lighten up the ink.  Patterned paper by Amy Tangerine patterned paper, ephemera by Pink Paislee, doily for date from a FB swap., and bade by Studio Calico.

Writing with Acrylic

Writing with paint was a challenge.  I used Wilna Furstenberg’s premade script and painted over it as she did but it’s not as easy as she made it seem.  I enjoyed it though and hope to continue working on my text painting.  Used Amy Tangerine patterned paper and ephemera pieces by Teresa Collins.  Love badge by Studio Calico.  Acrylic paint by Reeves.
