Some relaxing time!!
This morning I spent some time in my studio working on finishing up some projects that I had started and never finished.

I started these scrapbook pages nearly a year ago. My goal is to make each of my sets of pages more like an art project rather that just sticking some pics on a page. In these pages I did lots of layering, shading and faux stitching. Each leaf, branch and blueberry were shaded individually.
I have also started working on my christmas cards. With the babies on the way I wanted to get started with these projects and get them done well before I need them done including the baby thank you cards and birth announcements.
These Christmas cards are different only in the way I colored them. The one on the left uses watercolor pencils and pigment powder paints. The one on the right I used Tria Pantone and Prismacolor markers.
The 3rd of the christmas cards I have done was the one on the top here that was quick to assmble once all the little snowman parts were stamped and cut.
I will probably make several more different cards to keep me from being bored and accomplish making 50 cards for christmas.
Time to get back to the studio :)
