Three Cards Using CraftArtist2

I love using this programme. I have bought a few digi kits
but lots are given free too.  I think knowing basics of PS
helps me to understand CraftArtist more and to know
what I can get it to do for me.  I certainly still have loads
to learn, but it's fun at the same time.

granddaughter.  I added some mixed media elements to the

Birthday Card For Shanee 12

My niece is soon to be twelve - here it is a special birthday for girls -
it will be her Bat Mitzvah - she will be a young lady.  Usually kids of
this age have a party and some are lucky enough to go on a trip
abroad.  Here is the card I made for her.

Challenge #59 Tic Tac Toe - CAS on Sunday

I chose Birthday, Butterfly and Ribbon for my card.

When I have time I like to take part in challenges.
Recently I was in the top 3 of a challenge where
over 300 cards were submitted, so I was very
pleased about that.   Having a hobby like this
certainly leaves no time to be bored.

A Wedding Card

Just love this image.  Wanted to make a CAS card, so
didn't add layering or lots of bling (which I also love).
I added just a touch of colour to the image.

A Guy's Birthday Card

As I have said before, I find it quite difficult doing a card for
a guy, especially if you need a new idea every year.  So this
time I mostly used what I had and did not look for a digi.  I
hope my guy likes it.

My First Try At Mixed Media On Canvas

I've been watching videos on how to do mixed media
(didn't even know what it really meant)  and after seeing
a video by Angela Holt, I got down to making a picture
of my own - and this is the result.  I must
admit that I rather like it!  It was also fun to do.

I didn't have to put gesso on the canvas as it came
with that already done. On the background I put a few
layers of pattern paper and I used a few stamps and
Modge Podge.  Also used molding paste and stencils.
I loved using the ink sprays.  I  used embellishments
that I had to hand (I was lucky to have some Petaloo
flowers).  Luckily we have a few shops that sell
lace so that wasn't a big problem to find.  It has been
a problem finding ink sprays here, so I have to wait
for holidays abroad (not too often) to get some items.
I searched online for the profile, as I wanted a
Victorian look. As you may have guessed, I like
glitter too.
