Some of my projects from Created from Color Advanced Class

Hiya!  It's been a while, but my head is not really in the right space for blogging right now.  I am currently struggling through my final project for the Advanced Class I just took from Created From Color run by Melissa and Kristy so that I can finally start to pack up my craft desk... only 3 more weeks left in Greece!!!

The class was fantastic and I learned a lot of new skills.  I highly recommend it to anyone who has completed the Basic Course and wishes to move onto more advanced techniques like radial and single source light as well as reflections and colouring to show distance. I only wish I had devoted a bit more time to it and had been in the right frame of mind.

Here are a couple of my completed projects...

Single source light:

Radial light:

Alrighty then!  I had better stop procrastinating and get back to the job at hand!  

Ciao for now!

Princess Tia at Some Odd Girl

Oh my goodness! How could I have forgotten to post my most favourite image from this week's release at Some Odd Girl?!  Did you get to see all the fab new releases?  This one called Princess Tia is my favourite:

Isn't she cool?!  She's so much fun to colour... I love her!  The papers are from Crate Paper and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  I added googly eyes to the frog and Stickles around the place and the charm is from my stash. 

Here's a close-up:

I hope you enjoyed this week's new releases!  

Ciao for now!

October Sketch Challenge at Some Odd Girl

Hello!  I'm back!  A bit late, but I did remember eventually!  It's the 1st of October today... wow the year has gone pretty fast I think!  Anyway, the 1st of October means a new sketch at Some Odd Girl... so pop on over and check it out!  My teamies' creations are awesome!

Here's my card using the uber cute Tobie from the Beach Day Buddies clear stamp set:

The papers I have used are from Hambly Screenprints and Basic Grey.  The sentiment is a sticker from  SRM and the crystals are from Prima.  I coloured Tobie with copics and kept the card pretty simple really!  The starburst behind Tobie was cut with my Slice machine.
