Hi friends! Have you missed me? I've only been gone a few days, but it feels like forever! Today's sweet wheelbarrow image, Spread a Harvest of Hope, is one of the newest images from My Favorite Things. I colored with Copic markers, then added the grassy ground underneath with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. If you haven't checked out Paula Williamson's tutorial on how to add a patch of grass with your Prismas, you really should! You can find it in MFT's How'd They Do That forum (it's in the HTDT? Tips & Tricks for the July Release 6.30.09).
Speaking of How'd They Do That tutorials, I've just posted this week's tutorial, Photographing Your Papercrafting Projects. I am no photography expert by any stretch - just sharing tips I've gleaned over many years of scrapbooking (plus a couple years of cardmaking) and tricks I've discovered through trial and error. I hope you'll take a peek! Even more, I hope you'll find something useful in it ;)
