September Blog

I figure that if I can find the time to produce one blog a month, I'll be happy.  There has been much going on this past month, including the beginning of the Jewish High Holy Days.  I generally create my own New Years cards for friends and family.  This year I made a few prototypes and repeated the basics of each of them to mass produce the quantity I needed.  Here are some examples:


Except for the two stamped cards, the images were taken off the internet thru Google Images.  Since I don't sell my cards and only give them as gifts, I feel that is legal to use them. 

I made a really nice card the other day.  Here it is:

It's a simple design making the background from clear stamps in sepia and using the same color for the words. I added an embellishment to make the card have a little color.

Here are some of my attempts at collage.  I still feel they are a challenge, but I'm sort of getting the hang of it.  It's a matter of 'letting go' and just doing it!

Well, that's it for now.  I'll try to post more often.
