Last night I held the first of my online classes for demonstrators to learn a bit more about using Blendabilities. When I was through with the class, I had all of these lovely pansies from Happy Watercolor that I had colored in the course of the class. They’ve been staring at me all morning.
What I really need to be doing is finishing reading scholarship applications. But, I keep looking at the flowers instead. I need to make something from them. Finally, inspiration hit.
We’re book people. It’s not that I/we haven’t tried to love the e-readers. I love the idea of them. But let me tell you, the first time you’re really hooked on a story and you’re staying up until you finish and then the reader runs out of juice…well, let me just say the love affair was a bit tarnished. I didn’t want to wait for it to charge. I wanted to be irresponsible and stay up all night reading. Then, when a book would only load up to a certain chapter no matter what I did it was time for a divorce – from the e-reader. So, I need bookmarks.
I’m loving this one.
I used a 2″ wide strip of Rich Razzleberry cardstock for the base and punched one end with the Scallop Tag Topper. Next, I added a layer of Whisper White and attached it with the new Fast Fuse adhesive. You can try this product for yourself in June. Next, I cut out several of the poppies that I had colored in the Blendabilities class. I used both the Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight packs. A few random dots were added with another stamp from Happy Watercolor that had been inked in Old Olive. And finally, I attached a piece of Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon to the top.
I love that with the Blendabilities it’s easy to achieve shading and no matter how you choose to shade it all looks good. Each of the flowers is a little different. You should see them in person. They really pop!
Here’s a close up of one of the flowers. Notice how even the color is? That’s one of the beautiful things about the new Blendabilities markers.
Well, I must get back to processing scholarship applications.
You should sign up for my mailing list so that you’ll know when the Blendabilities will be available to you.
