I knew that I wanted to use this K & Company paper, so I got all of the panels ready to go. Then I sat and sat and sat trying to decide what I should use for the focal image. I was *really* tempted to use a tea pot or a baby image, but restrained. I tried a couple of different options with little success. When I was almost ready to throw the whole thing away, I spotted a scrap of October Afternoon ("Fly a Kite" collection) paper. It was a collage of different vintage children doing various things. I decided that this litte vintage girl would be perfect for the focal image.
I used a variety of copic and prismacolor markers to color the image. After I was done photographing the card, I realized that I forgot to add some depth to her hair, so I went back and did that, but I didn't take any new photos. Everything else is pretty straightforward. I didn't add too many bells and whistles since I was in a rush.
I barely got my daughter to the dance studio in time for her pictures. I pride myself on being on-time, but that has seriously changed since I have had Rowan. We are late everywhere we go lately. My kids make it on time to school, but that is about it!
As far as my creative time goes, I really didn't do much this week. We switched satellite companies and I had random workers in my house two days this week, which interrupted naps and such and I thought I was going to go crazy! Rowan finally had a good afternoon nap yesterday, which was a nice change! I am hoping to have more time next week to get things done. I have said it before, but I really hate going from SFYTT to SFYTT, so I apologize! Teacher appreciation is next week, so I am hoping to get some fun things put together for my kid's teachers.
You won't want to miss the other designers! Jodi Collins is joining the SFYTT sisterhood and I couldn't be happier! I Love her work!
