wow i have been AWFUL about blogging on a frequent basis like i used to BUT i have also been busier than usual at home with day to day home life. crossing my fingers that will improve once pezza is back in preschool again. you know i have been reading all the back to school posts on facebook and the folks who are so sad to see their kids going back to school and they will miss them…apparently their kids are not completely insane like mine is! me? i need the break. SHE needs the break AND the change of scenery…and hubby and i will pray she keeps her teeth to herself this year. we have been attending a weekly therapy playgroup this summer that focuses on children learning how to behave with one another. of course she has been adorable and perfect in there and the therapists think i’m nuts. *sigh*
now onto my project for the Twisted Thursday challenge over on The Outlawz Challenge site.
This weeks challenge is Anything Goes…with a optional twist.
The twist is to use one of the digi stamps that our very own Anne has drawn just for this challenge. Thank you Anne!! You can find these digis on the challenge thread – just click the link above in purple!
If you are new to our challenges, let us give you a quick explanation: We were originally POM which was short for Primsa’s and Other Mediums. Other Mediums can be anything from dye inks, distress inks, chalks, heat embossing, water colored pencils, crayons, etc. Basically anything except for alcohol ink markers such as Copics and Promarkers. Prisma’s can be ANY colored pencil, it doesn’t have to be the Prisma color brand. With the name change to Twisted Thursday, we added a twist to the challenge! You are allowed to have 50 percent alcohol inks on your images!! We are hoping this will make the challenge a little bit easier for you! Have fun! the prizes are fabulous so be sure to enter!
i used Anne’s Corner Leaves image along with my Cricut Thanksgiving cartridge:
i colored the leaves with colored pencils and then cut them out. the leaves were fun to do – i sort of used them as a study and tried a couple different techniques and several different color combinations.
i have been working in overdrive on projects for the next issue of Through the Craft Room Door – we will be focusing on halloween and fall in general. i am excited about the projects we will be featuring! here is a little hint for ya – next time you are in target you will want to pick up a few of these – specifically the clear, orange, green and/or red:
and you may want to get a matching hand towel while you’re at it! and now i am off to finish things up – the new issue will be hitting inboxes soon so if you are not already a subscriber now is the time! you can catch this fun issue as well as our bonus holiday issue due out in mid october!
now off to dive into my to-do list!
