Friendship Heals Everything

Today I followed a video done by Shari Carroll.  I love the things she does.  I love the color she chooses.  So I did exactly as she did.  I did not have all the Gellato colors or the Pit Big Brush colors but they were similar.  Shari did a lighter blue maybe by mixing more gel medium into it.  But I love how it turned out.  I copied her exactly because I find that I learn more if I am not concerned about placement colors etc.  I absolutely love these Birds from Tim Holtz and I am going to do a lot of practice with them watching various videos and following their technique.  Then I will go on my own and come up with my own creations.

The Gel Medium mixed with Gellatos gives a nice texture.

The video is on You Tube “Quick Techniques Using Faber Castell.”  Simon Says Stamps and Shari Carroll

Friendship Heals Everything

Welcome to my blog. I started my blog so that I could share all of the things that I am passionate about not only in the creative world but in all areas of my life. I retired over 10 years ago from the field of education. I was a Resource Specialist in a Teacher's Resource Library. My job allowed me to do the things I love every day. I love creating things with many different media. Papercrafting is my favorite. I helped teachers create bulletin boards and instructional materials for their classrooms. Now that I am retired I spend a lot of time creating cards and I love all of the different techniques and media available. I also am very active in wildlife conservation and spend many hours volunteering with the Wildlife Conservation Network.
