This card was the March challenge for the ‘Simply Create Too’ Design Team. The theme was to create a shaped card.
Over lockdown I decided to continue painting the miniatures from ‘Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle Earth’ board game. I again used Sorastro’s painting …
During Lockdown I thought that I would also improve my wirework skills. I haven’t concentrated on them for a while, so it was time to learn something new.
I’m pleased to announce that I passed the final challenge for Level 1 of the Altenew Educator Certification Program.
The final challenge to achieve a level 1 in the Altenew Educator Program was to create 2 sets of cards, one for her and one for him. Each set needed to have 6 cards on the same theme.
The ‘Irresistible Inking Techniques’ Altenew Academy class looks at different creative ways to use your ink pads. Some of these techniques I had learned previously in other Altenew Academy classes, but a few were completely new to me. The class is run by Sara Naumann, who has her own unique style and explained the techniques really well.
It’s been a while, but I’ve finally finished another Altenew Academy class ‘Easy Die Cutting Techniques’ by Yana Smakula. This class covers everything from the basic use of dies with stamps to some more advanced techniques.
I am pleased to say that I’m now part of the Get Creative Challenges Blog Design Team. It is an interesting blog, all about promoting the use of digital stamps. There is even a monthly challenge that anybody can join in, no matter what their skill level is.
‘Seasonal Scene Building’ is an interesting mix of a class from Altenew. The tutor Nichol Magourik, brings a different way to use techniques that you may already be familiar with. I found myself thinking a lot during the class, that I had never thought of doing that before.
My books finally arrived so that I could start learning seed beading properly. I am very much a book learner, with videos coming a close second.
