Class #2 Artistic Techniques with Jennifer Rzasa at Altenew Academy.
Hard on my injured hand but worth the pain! I do need to find something more "white" for the stars. Thought I'd try gesso next time.

I'm taking Altenew's "For the Guts" card making class with Jennifer Rzasa and am loving it! So far, each class has opened my mind to trying different things, especially for masculine cards. Totally away from the norm. Class #5 is Pop Art and she showed how to make an Andy Warhol-inspired card. Here are my examples of them. Cutting 4 squares and getting them right for the card is easier said than done.
Stamps are from Skipping Stones (doggies) and Words to the Rescue (I'm here... sentiment).
I will say this: It was much more easy to watch Jennifer do this than it was doing it. HA!
On to some more dry runs from her previous 4 classes!

I had so much fun making this embroidery hoop pocket for my swap partner, Teresa, over at Your Paper Pantry. It is simply a matter of getting into your stash, pulling out some favorite lace, fabric, embellishments and a glue gun. It literally took me 20 minutes to put together and I love it. I even added some of my old vintage millenary stash.
