My nephew named this card for me. He saw it sitting on my desk when I was working on it and he was excited that I made a Skull trooper card. It is and it isn’t. I was really just playing around with some ephemera and really liked how this looked. We see what we want to see, isn’t that what art is all about?

Alcohol inks are way to much fun! I doubled my color pallet today, and I picked up a couple of tools to play with as well. Now I am playing around with different papers and techniques. This time I used the backside of photo paper. Which is kind of awesome because years ago I bought a huge package at Costco and now I have something to use it up with.

Well, yesterday was a really good day, today not so much. Yesterday my shoulder/neck/back pain was pretty much gone, and my newest prescription seemed to level out. With that, I was able to think and get things done for the first time in a while. Then last night a horrible nights sleep happened and the pain is back. Sometimes I feel like I can’t win for anything.

Is it here yet? Ah, fall, how I love you. I am already getting excited about putting more blankets back on the bed. I know that we will probably have at least some more heat, but it is so close I can taste it. Oh, and it tastes wonderful! A bit like pumpkin spice…

Have I told you that I bought a new set of colored pencils? I thought I really needed to expand the color selection that was open to me and so I made the plunge. I am now using Prismacolor watercolor colored pencils and I am liking them quite a bit. I am not exactly sure how to share what colors I am using on each project, but I am sure that with my husbands help we will come up with a good solution.

In the past, I have tried to add a bit of sparkle to die cuts with embossing powder and it has never quite worked the way I hoped it would. Then I made a bit of a mess trying to use a product for the first time and went to YouTube to figure out what I should have done. In the video was a bit about using it with embossing powder on die cuts, and Viola! This is what I have been trying to do. What a great effect.
