I spent the majority of today fighting with photoshop. SO frustrating!! It was like it sensed that I actually had something to accomplish and it kept crashing or freezing at every turn. I’m finishing up a journal/planner for my mom. It was meant to be a Christmas present but I wasn’t anywhere near finished…so she’s going to get it for her birthday tomorrow. Now all I have to do is get this house whipped in to shape before she gets here tomorrow for dinner. It ain’t happenin tonight…
Here’s a couple of pages from the journal. I used a template system by Tangie Baxter called Tangible Plans. LOVE it. I’ve been hooked on Tangie for a few years now, love her work. I’ll post a couple of links below. (this is not a paid post, just want to share her with you!)
This page is really busy but I like the way it turned out.
Soon-ish….there’s a lot of really cute prompts in the kit.
I’m back. Surprised? Me too! I’ve come to realize that I’m a flake now. Not because I don’t care or things aren’t important to me, but because my body dictates my life now and I really can’t stand that. I crashed at 3pm and woke up at 8:30pm and haven’t had a chance to sit down and blog. But, better late than never, right? Onward!
OK, I decided to share a few things with you that I think are pretty cool, fun, or interesting. The first is something that I just heard for the first time tonight. My son came over and told me that my dad was looking for this Celtic band and couldn’t find the cd anywhere. They are called Albannach and are a Scottish pipes and drums band. Dad loves Irish music and knows the words to all the old songs from the Ol’ sod. So this is kinda cool that he’s lookin for a Scottish band. When I googled them, the first hit I got was of them jammin with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Check it Out
I have to find them in time for Father’s Day.
OK, lately I have been completely and thoroughly addicted to shopping for graphics for digi scrapping. And I do mean addicted. I’m gonna have to have Big C change the password on our paypal account because each 10 and 15 dollar order adds up quick. Fo sho. So anyway, (see, not using anyways anymores) I have been introduced through my thirst for everything digital to-Art Journaling. With graphics, yes! Perfect combo of hands on and digital. Or you could just do digital but I don’t think it would feel the same. And it really is freeing. When you are working on your scrap pages you are preserving a memory for others, to last forever. But your Art Journal is all your own. You’re not making it for anyone else’s eyes so it’s anything goes baby! woot! And you really don’t have to go buy a ton of stuff if you have some paints and pens, scissors and glue you’re good to go. You could even use an old book and work right over it. So, here are a few links to a couple of art journal blogs and I’m gonna hook you up with an artsy woman on video. The first blog is Tangie Baxter from scrapbookgraphics.com. She has an Art Journal Caravan that I highly recommend if you would like weekly prompts and half of that weeks provisions (which brings it down to 2 bucks) And the next is a Seattle artiste named TeeshaMoore whom I adore! aaargh. It’s late or early, whatever that’s what Im blaming my lameness on. I’m going to link her blog to her first name and her .com to her last name. She’s that good. Wait till you see what she made while under the influence of six shots of tequila! OK, I think the video is severely lacking now, and maybe even annoying so I’m leaving it out.
Well alrighty then. It’s almost 6 am, I had to most ferocious, terrifying, slasher film nightmare that woke me up a few hours ago and my muscles from head to toe are killing me!!! Hey, I knew i couldn’t make it through a post without a little whine. ha! There’s no way sleep will come so I’m heading over to SBG where one of my favorite designers, Mays, is having a 48% off sale to celebrate her 48th bday. Graphics, woot! I love her style too.
