  • Weekend Project: practice, practice, practice!

    Modern calligraphy is very popular and so is writing on anything to make it personalized and custom!  The great thing about modern calligraphy is that it is more forgiving than traditional calligraphy and it's fairly easy to pick up and learn how to do it.  However, it does take practice.  It's amazing how a little bit of practice can quickly improve your writing in this new style.  One other trick, is save what you write so that you can see how you are improving and sometimes the next day when you go back and look at it, it might not be so bad!  I do that trick with cards as well.  We sell lots of modern calligraphy products in our store.  However, we did get in a new metallic watercolor set from Gansai Tambi that is amazing!  You simply wet the ink and then paint the ink onto your pointed calligraphy pen or you can also use a detailed brush.  The brush pen is how I did the samples below.

    IMG_3307 IMG_3308 IMG_3309 We offer modern calligraphy classes in the store, you can look at our class schedule to see when and where the next class will be offered.  We also sell a book that is great to help you get started!  Practice, practice, practice!

  • English Rose Collage Card

    We love this new die from Memory Box (English Rose Collage)!  They have done this style of die on a few different images but I think this English Rose version is one of my favorites!  They are all perfect with a watercolor background.  However, with all of the detail on this die, it can be tricky to get the colors in the correct spot!  There isn't a rule that you need to have the leaves green and flowers pink but for some reason I thought that it looked better this way.

    IMG_3362 This is what the die looks like when it's cut out.
    IMG_3365

    To figure out where I want to put each color, I die cut the die in vellum paper and then placed the vellum over the area in the correct spot on the card so that it would line up.

    IMG_3366 IMG_3367 IMG_3368

    Even though I colored in the cut out spaces on the vellum, it didn't matter to expand the watercolor area.  So I went back and filled in with more color so that the die cut over lay would have a little more flexibility.

    This is a fun and impressive card to create!  Stop by and see this and others that you can do this same technique. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Memory Box Release

    It's always exciting when there is a new Memory Box release.  It never disappoints and the excitement of looking over every detail of what is new can take hours.  Just when I think, there couldn't possibly be anything more that I need, I can always find a few treasures that I can't live without.  This would be the case with this new die!

    newrelease

    This new die is called the English Rose Collage.  I love how they did the watercolor background and then die cut the image to go above the watercolor.  Beautiful!

    Stop by our stores or shop online to see the collection from Memory Box and Poppy Stamps.
