A super fabulous deal is going on at Michaels right now. Special buy paper pads/collections are on sale for only $5.99 this week. To make this an even better deal we have four different “best of” American Crafts 8 1/2 X 11 paper collections in, including The Best of Amy Tangerine, The Best of Studio Calico, The Best of Maggie Holmes and The Best of Dear Lizzy. I have picked up all of the packs but the Dear Lizzy one…. but the week isn’t over yet.
Ready, Set, Go with Amy Tangerine and Echo Park
I couldn’t help but start playing with the Amy Tangerine stack right off. Since the papers were 8 1/2 by 11 in the stack, I started off thinking I was going to do an 8 1/2 x 11 page. The added piece from Echo Park’s now ancient Summer Days collection was an after thought; but one I thought brought the whole page together.
“I heart Christopher Hart” with Amy Tangerine and Basic Grey Hey You, Hey Boy and Hey Girl
I was cleaning off my work space and sorting through the scraps I had left from the first layout and put together an 8 1/2 x 11 page base. I had picked up some 6X6 Basic Grey paper pads at Tuesday morning for $1.99… and this page just kind of fell together.
For those not in the know, Christopher Hart is the author or MANY How to Draw Manga books. Between Mom and myself, we have bought Averie a number of these books and they always elicit a response of pure joy from my artsy niece.
Here is some hidden journaling.
