Art-lifting 101

1 Comment

To create, I often “art-lift” ideas from others or take workshops online and in-stores to learn new techniques and  try my hand with new products.  I subscribe to the Scarlet Lime mixed media monthly kit, which I so enjoy receiving. Christy Tomlinson, on her blog, shares her ideas for using the products in her Behind the Art pages. Here are Christy’s September and October kits as completed projects:

and the link to the video tutorial: http://christytomlinson.typepad.com/christytomlinson/2012/11/behind-the-art-video-october-mm-project-.html      Here’s my take, oddly enough, it’s lighter than Christy’s brights version but I love the colors and how well it blends, plus my message is “she loves her life”:
